Confirmed! Looks like that leaked ad for Gears of War 3 that was seen on Xbox live the other day spoke the truth. Cliff Bleszinski, design director at Epic Games, appeared on The Jimmy Fallon show this week, and confirmed that Gears of War 3 will launch next April. Epic has since given a firm release date of April 5th.
A trailer had appeared online briefly, but was immediately taken down at the request of Epic Games. When it’s officially released, we’ll have it here.
This will be the third and final installment of the popular Gears of War video game series, which is exclusive to Xbox 360. The end of Gears 2 hinted that there may be something more sinister around than just the locust hordes. In the interview with Bleszinski, it was revealed what that more sinister enemy is: the Lambit. Bleszinski said that these are â€œkind of crazy tentacle monsters that can mutate while you are fighting them.â€
You can catch a glimpse of these yourself in the new trailer â€œAshes to Ashesâ€ that just came out. At the end of the trailer the new enemy pops up behind the locusts, which both the locusts and gears start to fire upon. This seems way to Halo 2 to me, teaming up with your once enemy to fight a common foe. Iâ€™ll give it a chance though to see how they do it. Being the final game they would have to wrap it up pretty quick. The other two games were really fun, hopefully this game is even better.
The trailer is now embedded here below (via GameRant).
