All you Gear-heads out there take note because on September 20th, 2011 you’re going to “finish the fight.” Sorry I know I’ve got the wrong franchise, but hey, I love it when companies say “this is the final chapter,” the conclusion, etc. I find it very hard to believe that this will be the final Gears of War, but hey, if Microsoft and Epic say it is, than so be it right?
I’ve always loved this series, and hopefully the stars will align and I’ll be able to play this one with Steven, as we did with the original. It’s not going to be easy though as I have a ton of stuff going on in my personal life, went back to University for some classes and SO much more. Still, we’ll see what happens.
Here’s a quick recap of some of the new features found in GoW3.
An enthralling cinematic story that captivates players in an intimately intense action game Five-on-five multiplayer experience as well as four player campaign co-op experience New multiplayer game modes including ‘Beast Mode’ – offering a new twist to the game where you take on the role of the locust horde and their assorted variations! New maps including: Trenches which features an impressive sand storm that reduces your visibility, as well as Overpass, Mercy, Checkout, and Thrashball. New weapons including: The Bayonet Charge, The Retro Lancer, The Sawed-off Shotgun, The OneShot – a heavy sniper rifle that shoots through shields or cover for a surprise one shot kill, The Incendiary Grenade, The Digger Launcher and a few subtle tweaks to old favourites Hammerburst and The Classic Lancer. And don’t forget that each weapon now has its own execution move!
What about all of you out there? Are you as obsessed with the chainsaw gun, stomping to death, in your face full of blood, series as all of us are?
