"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, and 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."
Gears of War 3 plunges players into a harrowing tale of hope, survival, and brotherhood that will conclude the current story arc for “Gears of War.” With the last human city destroyed and the remaining survivors stranded, time is running out for Marcus and his comrades as they fight to save the human race from the jaws of extinction.
Microsoft and Epic Games has released the first “Ashes to Ashes” trailer for “Gears of War 3.” Created in Unreal Engine 3 by the same team behind the “Gears of War” video spots (“Mad World,” “Rendezvous,” and “Last Day”), the video captures a desperate three-way battle between Delta Squad, the Locust Horde, and the fearsome new Lambent. Watch it.
Additionally, fans who want to share their excitement on Xbox LIVE will be able to choose from new Avatar items, available on Avatar Marketplace starting April 20, including the new COG armor introduced in Gears of War 3.
