Gears Of War 3 Arrives

  • Trilogy finale of franchise
  • More cooperative game play
  • Three versions available

Featuring cinematic storytelling penned by New York Times bestselling author Karen Traviss, a campaign reviewers are calling “one of the most exciting on any system,” and a multiplayer experience that “feels more like four fully-formed and polished games,”  Gears of War 3 hit the ground running when it was released this week.

“This is our biggest ‘Gears’ game yet, and even though it’s the third instalment in the trilogy, it’s the easiest to jump into if you’re a new fan,” said Epic Games Design Director Cliff Bleszinski. “We’ve added more cooperative gameplay optionsand built in accessibility features throughout the game to make it approachable and fun for new players and series veterans alike.”

Developed by studio Epic Games for Xbox 360, Gears of War 3 is claimed to be the climactic conclusion to this popular first-person shooter franchise. The last bastion of humanity lies in ruins, and amidst the shattered remnants of civilisation and ominous whispers of almost certain extinction, Marcus Fenix and Delta Squad must take up their Lancers and make one final stand for survival against the cataclysmic threat of the infected Lambent horde.  

Developed exclusively for Xbox 360, Gears of War 3 and is available in three editions – Standard ($99.95), Limited ($129.95) and Epic ($195.95)
