So after a new teaser image got shown on American dashboards the other day, now GoW3 has been officially announced with an announcement trailer and is slated for an 8th April 2011 release.



So instead of the two way war between the COG's and Locusts now the Lambent will feature a lot more to make it a 3 way war. The game is supposed to feature some under water levels as well. Oh and at last Gears 3 will now feature 4 player co-op.

Damn! I can't wait for another story of one of my favourite game series of all times. And do I see a chick on the team there? Looks pretty nice. I assume the engine has changed, I remember Cliffy B. saying in an interview that there were no characters with long hair because the engine didn't support it well...
And the guy with the beard, is that Dom?

It looks like Dom, but I think I see Cole there but no Baird. Even though his whining was kind of annoying it will be sad if he died. Nevermind he's in there.

But the Lambent Locust was pretty obvious from the last game. The COG always has a way of making things worse when they think they're making things right, such as the lightmass bomb from GoW1 (which caused rustlung) and the sinking of jacinto from GoW2 (which was the last human stronghold. Should be interesting to see how the story develops from those points.

4-player co-op will be sweet too, now I just have to find three people to play it with. tounge.gif

I never really got into the multiplayer of the previous games, but the campaign and co-op were always pretty good so I'll probably end up renting this to see what the multiplayer is like.

Music like that has been a persitent thing in Gears Of War debut trailers, the first one had a Mad World cover but i can't remember what the 2nd one had.

I personally loved the music for the trailer (It kinda sends chills down my spine) and i cannot wait for the 3rd installment, being that both Gears games were my first 360 games when i got it Christmas 2008, deffinetly looking forward to the 4 player Co-Op too, it's gonna be a blast playing the story with an extra 2 friends this time.

I hope they keep Horde too, that mode was so much fun to play with a bunch of friends, never could get into the Multiplayer though.

Oh and if anyone wants to hera the full song from the trailer, here it is:

It's really sad that Halo is kind of a king of 360 when this GoW is so freakin awesome. Gunfights all the time, good story to back it up too. And even more sad that it's 360 exclusive. I played GoW 1 on PC and I loved it. Too bad I never got to play GoW2 I'm sure I would have loved it. But I was thinking of buying 360 a lot these days

If your only reason to get a 360 would be Gears 2, then i'd say it would be completly worth it, the Gears games are great and i had a blast playing through both and the game can have some great bosses, too bad Skorge was a bitch though.

How it Ends by DeVotchka. Great song.

I liked the trailer, looks all epic and sh*t as always. Shame the actual games, and this is just how I feel, never really come close to the awesomeness of the trailers. Still, I'm so getting this game.

3 way war? Yikes. Looking forward to fighting Lambents though, the worm one that bursts out of the ground in the trailer seems badass.

You bastard, I was going to make this topic. mad.gif

Anyway, watched the trailer before work, and just watched it again. It's amazing. I thought Dom was Marcus at first, just with an epic beard. Love the way he looks at the mother and child when he falls.

I'm guessing fighting with Anya is how they'll develop her and Marcus' lustful looks at each other...

Yeah I know, but this one sounded pretty bad compared to the previous two.

You sure thats Anya? There's a female in the Gears comic series so it could be her instead.

Okay, so people lie (or speculate). I've just watched the actual interview and he doesn't say that. My brother linked me to the trailer on The Escapist, and they said in their article about the trailer that it's Anya. Somebody in the comments said Cliffy had said that, but he doesn't.

Who knows then, I guess.

Damn, Anya finally got my vote as the sexiest character in GOW then. Sorry Baird, it's been fine run, but times change.

4 player co-op FTW. Each character better has his/her own set on animations.

Also, I hope they bring back that WOW factor from GOW 1. Nothing amazes me in GOW 2.

It's great that they finally announced the next GoW. I really enjoyed playing those other two.
At least I know now that there's some good games coming out in '11 also.

I love the gears games so I'm hyped but a years a long time to wait on it but atleast I'm hoping they use that time to iron out the bugs instead of rushing it. I saw a double barrel shotgun in Marcus' hands hopefully it doesnt replace the Gnasher as thats a staple of gears gameplay (atleast the multiplayer.) Hopefully in the mean time TU 6 makes 2 more enjoyable, because 1 is just full of glitchers that like to web stalk me.

I think they may be adding more alternatives to weapons in this, if you look closely Anya actually hands Dom a Pendulum Wars era Lancer (Bayonet instead of Chainsaw). So I'm expecting we will see quite a few more 'pedestrian' weapons, along with the bigger ones similar to the Flamer, Hammer of Dawn etc.

Marcus also has a double barreled shotgun, can't remember if that was on the second game or not.

No, I believe it wasn't. I also noticed it.

What the f*ck, me and my friend played it on Insane and Hardcore respectively, and apart from one point where we had to drop a difficulty (before promptly switching back later) had no problems ploguhing through the campaign.

It's a sequel. It's meant to be harder. I was hoping for a tonne of crazy ass boss fights or encounters or something, but there probably isn't going to be as many.

Best case scenario is they just give the Casual/Normal difficulties a buttload of health and ammo.
