Gears of War 3 - Step Inside The Wicked Workshop

Gears of War 3 - Step Inside The Wicked Workshop
Published by: forahobby on Monday, May 16, 2011
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox 360,

Step inside the wicked workshop in the latest Gears of War 3 Developer Diary for a behind the scenes look at Gears of War 3.

Gears of War 3

For those of you who have been living under a rock, Gears of War 3 is the third game in the highly anticipated third-person shooter series which launches this September.

Gears of War 3 takes place around 18 months after the sinking of Jacinto at the end of Gears of War 2. The Locust, now without a queen to lead them, are struggling to survive after being forced to the surface. Human society on Sera has been reduced to small collections of people in an almost feudal or tribal system. Marcus Fenix and a small group of what remains of Delta Squad hole up and continue fighting.


"This is definitely the biggest and most dramatic chapter yet in the Gears of War saga," says Cliff Bleszinski, design director at Epic Games.

Will it live up to all the hype? Decide for yourself this September.
