Stock up on the shotgun rounds and increase the resistance of the gory side of your mind; you’re going to need it. Epic Games and Microsoft have announced the release date for the Xbox 360 exclusive third person shooter game Gears of War 3. Initially bidding for an April 2011 release date, the developers pushed it back to 20th of September recently.
The third and final installment of the Gears of War series that sees human soldiers (or Gears) in the fictional planet of Sera locked in conflict with aliens known as Locust. The series is high on war drama and is similar to the Resistance series on the PlayStation 3. Each game featured a fully voiced protagonist who takes on unbelievable odds with a company of good Gears behind him or her.
In Gears of War 3 players will have the option of playing between many different characters each with his or her own quirks and abilities. A lot of different weapons have also been announced by Epic Games such as the Pendulum War Era Lancer and the Digger Launcher. A new multiplayer mode called Beast modehas also been announced in which players play as the Locust horde against human opponents. This is the exact opposite of the Horde mode in the previous game in which players cooperatively fought against a Locust horde.
Evidently Microsoft will be spending a huge amount of money on the advertising budget, so don’t expect to forget that Gears of War 3 will be coming up for your 360 in September.
