If you’re interested in Gears of War 3, you’re going to have to wait seven more months. Epic Games and Microsoft’s shooter will be out September 20, 2011. That’s okay though. You’ll be find. It’s only 209 days. You can cut that down to 208 days, if you order online and choose a launch date delivery option!
Besides, there’s still some Gears of War 3 gameplay opportunities you can take advantage of in the meantime. If you pick up the Xbox 360 Epic Edition of Bulletstorm, then you’re guaranteed access to the Gears of War 3 beta. That should be fun! Microsoft and Epic have been saying that should happen soon. Maybe in a few months.
Plus there’ll be Gears of War 3 announcements at E3 2011. Probably lots of trailers, screenshots and demo impressions. That should help keep fans happy. Speaking of demos, maybe Microsoft and Epic Games will release a public demo of Gears of War 3. A Gears of War 2 demo never appeared on Xbox Live, but the original Gears of War E3 2007 Stage Demo did.
Gears of War 3 is a direct sequel to Gears of War 2, set a little over a year after the previous game. Marcus and his fellow soldiers are fighting the Locust again, with all new weapons, in lots of new areas. In a first for the series, players will even be able to play as one of three female soldiers. The game will also have new kinds of Locust to fight and a Beast mode where players get to be a Locust and fight against humans.
