If you haven’t played either Gears of War or Gears of War 2, do yourself a favor. Shut down your PC. If you don’t already have an Xbox 360, go and buy one, and then purchase these two titles stat. You’ll want to be all caught up story-wise when Gears of War 3 comes home with a vengeance next year. Oh yes, there will be blood. And entrails. And severed limbs. And did we mention blood, entrails, and limbs? Yeah, all that times ten.
In an interview with MeriStation Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski confirmed several new additions and details for Gears of War 3.
The game will pick up eighteen months after the end of Gears 2. “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 tells the site. “We’re not going to answer everything, but I can tell you this will be the conclusion to a trilogy.”
Bleszinski also confirmed that for the first time there will be 4-player online co-op in the story mode. “When you play Gears 1 and 2, Player 1 is Marcus, and Player 2 is Dom. The only way to play as Dom in the campaign is to be Player 2. That cascades down to Players 3 and 4. If you want to play as Baird or Cole in the campaign, the only way you can do that is to play 3- or 4-player co-op. At some point in the campaign, you’re not going to be Marcus and Dom. You’re going to be another squad, and you’re going to experience their section, and you’ll see some overlap and they’ll merge Pulp Fiction style, which is one of the ways we’re playing with the stories this time.”
