Developers: Epic Games
Publisher: Epic Games
Engine: Unreal Engine 4
Platforms: Xbox 360
Release Date: September 20, 2011


Slogan


"Brothers to the end"



Plot:


"Let's finish this." -Marcus Fenix

Bleszinski said the plot of Gears of War 3 picks up 18 months after the end of Gears 2, and will close the book on the trilogy. "You can expect that we'll answer the majority of the questions that players have about the history of the world and what's going on," Bleszinski said. "We're not going to answer everything, but I can tell you this will be the conclusion to a trilogy."

So far, the game has been revealed to begin on the Raven's Nest, where a group of former COG, including Marcus Fenix, Dominic Santiago, and Anya Stroud, are trying to live out their lives in what peace they can. Things start to get complicated though when Richard Prescott appears and reveals that Adam Fenix is still alive.

Throughout the campaign players won't always be Dom and Marcus like in the previous 2. In certain parts of the campaign the game will go to the history of both Baird and Cole and their squad and players will explore their history.

A Graphical Comparison between Gears 1 and Gears 3. They really have improved so much.

Thanks for embedding such a big image.

The character models and lighting are a bit better. The environments still aren't brilliant though, they still fall victim to the usual quirks with the Unreal engine.

We all know by now that earning the Veteran Gear Achievement in Gears of War 2 will net you *something* in Gears of War 3, but the precise details about that something were unknown.

This past weekend, Epic's Rod Fergusson revealed during a webcam stream what those of you who have earned your wings will receive in the upcoming title. Veteran Gears will be able to rock Member of the Old Guard medal and title for your multiplayer profile. In addition, you'll receive golden weapon skins for the Lancer, Hammerburst, Retro Lancer, Gnasher Shotgun and Sawed-Off Shotgun.

Not interested in getting Veteran Gear? There is an alternate way to acquire each gold-skinned weapon, though many have already passed by.

Golden Lancer: Have the Golden Lancer in Gears of War 2

Golden Hammerburst: Have the Golden Hammerburst in Gears of War 2/[b]

[b]Golden Retro Lancer: Unlocked in the Gears of War 3 Beta by getting 100 kills with the Retro Lancer equipped


[b]Golden Gnasher Shotgun: Play a match within the first week of Gears of War 3's launch./[b]

[b]Golden Sawed-Off Shotgun: Have the Commando achievement from the first Gears of War, which is earned for clearing all levels on insane difficulty./[b]

Contrary to the occasional rumor that has floated around, Epic is definitely not going to somehow scan profiles and penalize people who boosted Veteran Gear during XP events. In fact, Fergusson also revealed during the stream that XP events for Gears 2 will take place every weekend so that as many people as possible can unlock Veteran Gear before Gears 3's worldwide, September 20th launch.


but.

Update: Epic has heard the cries of fans who were unhappy with the methods of getting the unlocks and have issued some changes.

We want to thank you for reaching out to us over the weekend with your thoughts on Friday’s announcement of the Veteran Gear unlock for Gears of War 3. We value the feedback of all our fans, especially our Veteran Gears who put in so much time not only by playing the game, but by sharing your passion for Gears on a daily basis on the forums.


With that in mind, we’d like to let you know that the Golden Gnasher Gears 3 unlock will only be available to those who have earned the Veteran Gear achievement in Gears of War 2. We do want to reward fans who play Gears 3 during release week, but have decided to do so by unlocking the Golden Hammerburst and Lancer instead of the Gnasher.
So what this means is that Veteran Gears will still receive all the weapons, the medal and the title, but *only* veterans will receive the Golden Gnasher. The Golden Hammerburst and Lancer will now be available for playing Gears 3 during its first week of release and the Golden Retro Lancer will be available exclusively to those who unlocked it in the beta. The methods for obtaining the Golden Sawed-off and Golden Retro Lancer remain unchanged.


So in other words, if you want all Gold Weapons for Gears 3, the easiest way to get your 'Wings' is to play through the XP weekends which will ocuur starting this weekend (August 20th) and will end the weekend of the Release of Gears 3(Sept 20th).

If anyone wants to do some XP grinding, I will also be available to do Horde. PM me via XBL.

I don't like the golden Hammerburst part. That was supposed to be exclusive to people who went to Gears of War 2 midnight madness, as it would carry over.

Seriously pumped for this. Especially the multiplayer, considering how awesome the beta was (and this is coming from somebody who didn't like the multiplayer in the first two Gears games).

The launch of “Gears of War 3” on Sept. 20 is still a few weeks away, but Microsoft and Epic Games are already announcing that there’s more to come by the way of multiple game add-ons for the year’s biggest blockbuster. Revealed today, the “Gears of War 3” Season Pass entitles you to the first four installments of downloadable content that will roll out over the course of the next year, with the first releasing this November.

Adding hours of campaign and multiplayer mayhem, these game add-ons will be must-haves for any “Gears” fan, and the “Gears of War 3” Season Pass is your ticket to getting them at a discount the day they release. Available Sept. 20 for 2400 Microsoft points on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, the season pass represents a 33 percent savings versus purchasing the add-ons individually, and also includes an exclusive Liquid Metal Weapon Set.
