Gears of War 3? Kind of a big deal. It is the most anticipated game of 2011, after all. Yesterday we learned that the Epic shooter will be out worldwide on September 20, and we now know that the beta will be released sometime in April.
Gears of War 3 had some of the most strategic multiplayer at E3. It makes us wonder: has design director Cliff Bleszinski been playing a lot of Team Fortress 2 lately? As part of E3, Epic provided hands-on time with Gears 3's new "Beast Mode," in which players finally take control of the franchise's antagonists, the Locusts. Think Horde Mode meets The Trojan Women. Players can co-op as a hodgepodge of Locust species -- from Maulers to Wretches -- to slaughter A.I.-controlled human scum. Each of these species comes bundled with distinct controls and style-of-play.
