[Rumor] Gears of War 3 Announced By Your Xbox
Posted April 9, 2010 by Jereme Puik
It seems that with the help of a ananymous tipster and your Xbox 360, Gears of War 3 was "officially" announced. Apprently as according to the screenshot caught above by Joystiq "The epic story will conclude in April 2011".
No word yet from Epic Games on the confirmation of the subject at hand so for now we peg this as a rumor. A tipster to Edge Online reported some fo the following facts as part of what's going to be in the game.
Gears Of War 3 will shake up the franchise's acclaimed cover system and feature underwater missions for the first time, Edge can reveal.
Developer Epic Games is set to evolve the combat by introducing new Locust foes with tentacle-like appendages which are capable of extending to player cover spots.
Meanwhile, the COG members of Delta Squad will be equipped with explosives that can travel beneath the ground to take out enemy cover positions, our US publishing source told us.
While the first two Gears games offered mobile cover in the form of objects like burnt out cars that could be pushed around, Gears Of War 3 will feature a heavy duty mech suit the COGs can utilise both for protection and to wreak havoc.
The game is also apparently going to be set in the Summer so we will finally see a different color pallette this time. Since we have no official word from Epic Games, this will all be pegged as rumor until we reach Monday for Cliff Bleszinski's reveal on Late Night.
