Gears of War 3 Campaign Teaser Trailer Released

Gears-of-War-3-Release-Date

Today a new trailer for the upcoming Xbox 360 exclusive game, and considered one of the top exclusive game franchises for Xbox 360, Gears of War 3 was released today. Unlike all the humurous tv spots that show what you can get for pre-ordering the game or just clips of the multiplayer, this trailer is a treaser/montage of the campaign and what the story will be like. So enjoy:

Exactly, it looks like this will be the biggest Gears yet in the series. The story takes place eighteen months after the events of Gears of War 2 and the loss of the human stronghold of Jacinto.  Marcus, Baird, Dom and company continue their fight to save human civilisation, as they battle the Locust and face new threats from within the planet throughout the campaign mode.

Here is what else you can expect from 2011’s most highly anticipated game:

  • An enthralling cinematic story that captivates players in an intimately intense action game
  • Five-on-five multiplayer experience as well as four player campaign co-op experience
  • New multiplayer game modes including ‘Beast Mode’ – offering a new twist to the game where you take on the role of the locust horde and their assorted variations!
  • New maps including: Trenches which features an impressive sand storm that reduces your visibility, as well as Overpass, Mercy, Checkout, and Thrashball.
  • New weapons including: The Bayonet Charge, The Retro Lancer, The Sawed-off Shotgun, The OneShot – a heavy sniper rifle that shoots through shields or cover for a surprise one shot kill, The Incendiary Grenade, The Digger Launcher and a few subtle tweaks to old favorites Hammerburst and The Classic Lancer. Don’t forget that each weapon now has its own execution move as well.

The more and more we see information being released about the game it seems to be shaping up to be one of the top gaming releases this year. Be sure to check back for more information on the game as it is released as well as my account of playing the multiplayer mode hands on at PAX East.
