Gears of War 3 is the long anticipated, Xbox exclusive, and final game to the Gears of War story arc. The third person shooter, featuring Marcus Fenix, will have a four-player co-op, a fully controllable mech suit, and new weapons. The weapons loadout include the Retro Lancer, the Digger Launcher, a Sawed off Shotgun, Incendiary Grenades, the One Shot (sniper rifle), the Vulcan, and the Butcher’s Cleaver. With new baddies, new weapons, new Beast mode (in multiplayer), and including Stereoscopic 3D; Gears of War 3 should be unreal!
There is no need for the girl gamer to feel left out of the testosterone fest that is the Gears of War franchise. There will also be three new playable female characters to attract the girl gamer (Samantha Byrne, Anya Stroud, and Queen Myrrah)! Samantha will be voiced by Claudia Black known for from such games as Uncharted 2, Mass Effect 2, and Dragon Age: Origins as well as t.v. shows Stargate and Farscape. The Video Game Vixen just loves her voice, she can be so sultry!
As this will be the conclusion to the trilogy, gamers want to know if the multitude of unanswered questions and backstory will be answered. According to Cliff Bleszinski (Epic Games design director), in an interview with IGN (April 2010):
Bleszinski said the plot of Gears of War 3 picks up 18 months after the end of Gears 2, and will close the book on the trilogy.
“You can expect that we’ll answer the majority of the questions that players have about the history of the world and what’s going on,” Bleszinski said. “We’re not going to answer everything, but I can tell you this will be the conclusion to a trilogy. IGN
