Gears of War 3
Gears of War 3 is an upcoming third-person shooter video game developed by Epic Games and published by Microsoft Games Studiosexclusively for the Xbox 360. Originally due for release in April 2011, the game was delayed and will now be released on September 20, 2011. It will be the third installment of the Gears of War series, and the final game in the current story arc.

Gears of War 3 will feature for the first time a four-player co-op mode and the introduction of three playable female characters: Samantha Byrne, Anya Stroud, and Bernadette Mataki (a character from the novels by Karen Traviss). Another new playable character is Jace Stratton, a battle-hardened soldier who appears in the comic series and is mentioned in the second game.

A fully controllable mech suit will be available for use in certain parts of the game, armed with a machine gun and rocket launcher. It has two operating modes, in assault mode it is controlled like a standard character, in stationary mode, it locks into position and deploys its armor, as well as cover for other Gears from its legs.



Hip-hop stars Drake and Ice-T will be the voices of Jace Stratton and Griffin, respectively. Claudia Black will be the voice of Sam Byrne. The Locust have also expanded with the addition of the Savage Grenadier, the Digger Boomer, the Locust Siege Beast, and an armored Kantus - sometimes referred to as the "Kantus Knight". Gears 3 will mark the return of the Berserkers. The game also introduces new lambent enemies, such as Drudges, Polyps, Lambent Stalks, and a Lambent Berserker.

New moves in the game include the ability to swap weapons with squadmates and knock over enemies while going over cover, as seen in the live demo. Players will also be able to kick Lambent enemies away after they have been killed by the chainsaw or bayonet, and perform new executions.

Gears of War 3 will include a new mode called Beast mode. It is the opposite of Horde Mode in Gears of War 2, the player instead attacks COG members as Locust. Tokens are earned for killing enemies, allowing the player to upgrade their character to a stronger class of Locust. Horde Mode will also reappear in the third installment. Original multiplayer modes are back in Gears of War 3, but with a twist. In "Team Deathmatch", a game similar to Warzone, every team has 25 respawns (30 lives including starting ones) per round, and when the lives run out the game-mode turns into a match with a mixture of Warzone and Execution rules. "Capture the Leader" is a combination of Guardian and Submission, and the leader will have to be captured and held for 30 seconds. But, the leader will still be able to struggle and knock his captor around. The struggling causes minor damage and can turn a match around.

Also, players can earn awards based on their gameplay and can unlock character variants, and it has been revealed that there will be many choices to choose from. New executions, weapon skins, and “mutators”, can also be unlocked. Along with this, Epic has announced that they will be providing dedicated servers to prevent the issues that Gears of War 2 had with multiplayer. There will also be a playable beta released in April 2011 that can be attained by buying the Epic Edition of Bulletstorm or by pre-ordering Gears of War 3 in any edition at GameStop.
