Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Gears of War 3 release dated.


It's right around my birthday!

The saga of Marcus Fenix and his COGs will conclude on September 20. Epic Gamesannounced the official worldwide release date for Gears of War 3 this morning, and in the process provided a handful of fresh details about the Xbox 360 exclusive.

-- Five-on-five multiplayer experience as well as four player campaign co-op experience

-- New multiplayer game modes including Beast Mode, offering a new twist to the game where you take on the role of the locust horde and their assorted variations

-- New maps including: Trenches which features an impressive sand storm that reduces your visibility, as well as Overpass, Mercy, Checkout, and Thrashball

-- New weapons including: The Bayonet Charge, The Retro Lancer, The Sawed-off Shotgun, The OneShot – a heavy sniper rifle that shoots through shields or cover for a surprise one shot kill, The Incendiary Grenade, The Digger Launcher and a few subtle tweaks to old favorites Hammerburst and The Classic Lancer. Don't forget that each weapon now has its own execution move

Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

I think this pretty much squashes the rumor mill of Halo Remake happening this year...M$ has pretty much made September Halo's release month, and there is no way in hell they would cannibalize sales of their 2 most important shooter exclusive Franchises, not the mention piss off Epic in this move.

Well, it's great that we have this dated.

It's upsetting though as heruamon stated that it's not looking like Halo Remake will be releasing


Anyway, time to get hyped for Gears
