Gears of War III Officially Announced
Epic's Cliff Bleszinski was suppose to appear on the Jimmy Fallon show last night to announce Epic's big new project. After moving the project back to finish some work on it, his appearance was delayed until Monday. I do not think Microsoft got that memo, as an advertisement appearing on the Xbox 360 dashboard tonight for Gears of War 3 suddenly popped up. Oops....
Gears 3 has already been rumoured to introduce underwater missions into the series, among other new environments. The there are also tweaks to the cover system, namely by adding mech suits that players can use to engage Locust hordes directly or hide behind as heavy-duty, mobile cover.
Gears 3 looks to be slated for an April 2011 release date.
