Following yesterday's official announcement of Gears of War 3 on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, a few new details have come to the surface.
Gears of War 3 will round off the current story arc of the Coalition of Organised Governments (COG) soldiers in their battle against the Locust hordes that threaten to overrun the world of Sera. For the first time in the franchise’s history, Gears of War 3 will include four-player co-operative multiplayer action for the main campaign. It will also introduce female COG soldiers for the first time, along with new tentacle enemies that can reach players hiding behind cover.
“When we released Gears of War more than three years ago, we set out to tell the world an unforgettable story of bravery and sacrifice in the face of insurmountable odds. A year from now, players will get the chance to experience the final chapter in the story of Marcus Fenix and his companions in Delta Squad,” said Cliff Bleszinski, design director at Epic Games. “This is definitely the biggest and most dramatic chapter yet in the Gears of War saga, and we can’t wait to deliver it.”
