    Default Official Gears of War 3 Thread



    Release Date: September 20th, 2011

    I can't wait! I've been a die hard Gears fan since 2006 when the first game was launched.

    Beast Mode sounds amazing as hell, but the new Horde 2.0 is going to be my bread and butter of the game. More strategic now, you have to choose an area to make your command center, and then earn cash with your kills to buy defense items for the HQ.
    More info
    -----------------------
    Beast Mode- Gears of War 3 will include a new mode called Beast mode. Similar to Horde Mode in Gears of War 2, the player instead attacks COG members as the Locust creatures. Tokens are earned for killing enemies, allowing the player to upgrade their character to a stronger class of Locust. Known Locust classes to be included are Tickers, Wretches, Drones, Kantus, armoured Kantus , Boomers, Digger Boomers, Butchers and Berserkers.

    Horde 2.0- Horde Mode will also feature in the third installment, dubbed "Horde 2.0".[8] Instead of previously being a simple "find a spot and hold out" game as in Gears 2, Horde 2.0 plans to be far more strategic. Players will now choose an area as their "Command Post" and earn cash from kills to build defences around it, such as wire and laser fences, automatic and manual turrets, and decoys. Every tenth wave will now feature boss monsters from the campaign, including Brumaks and Lambent Berserkers. It has also been rumored that Savage Corpsers will be included.

    Multiplayer Online Gameplay- Epic have announced that the game will run on dedicated servers due to fans complaining of several issues that hampered the multiplayer in Gears of War 2. Variants of the original multiplayer modes will appear in Gears of War 3. In Team Deathmatch, a similar game type to Warzone, every team has a total of 30 lives per round, and when all the lives run out the match turns into a mixture of Warzone and Execution rules. Capture the Leader is a combination of Guardian and Submission, where the leader will have to be captured and held for 30 seconds. However, the leader will still be able to struggle and knock his captor around, which causes minor damage and can turn a match around. Also, there is King of the Hill, which is basically Annex from the two previous Gears of War games. Additionally, players can earn awards based on their performance and unlock several different character variants. New executions, weapon skins, and mutators (customizable options for private matches), can also be unlocked.
    -------------------------

    This game is going to be amazing. I will try and keep this thread up to date as much as possible.

    If you're interested KG, I'm starting my old clan from '06 back up for the Gears 3 online. Be pretty awesome to have a Pacer/Metal friend to hang around in the clan.

    Interested in Beast Mode, but wouldn't it be a waste of time to play as a Ticker?

    If anybody's interested, I'd love to get most of my clan members from Pacers Digest. Just say if you're interested. Our clan usually consists of 16 Players, so on match-making nights, we roll in groups of 4 obviously, with a commander in each group. We obviously put a commander in each group so 1 team isn't heavy while others struggle.

    Our commander's are chosen by leadership skills, battle skill, clutch, and match awareness ( Depends with game-type )

    Our clan consists of:
    (4) Snipers
    (4) Commanders
    (8) Grounders


    We usually have dedicated snipers that always grab it and go to avoid pick-up down time between members.

    If anybody is interested please say so, because I'd love to have a team through Pacers Digest.

    It's going to be fun; I haven't played much FPS, especially Gears, in many months, and I'm looking forward to getting back into it. Used to play a lot with Lord Helmet and Natson; hopefully we can all meet up and play.

    Whenever you pick it up, you should add me, maybe do some 4P Co-Op. I have some banked vacation time that I'm using for the launch of the game.

    I wouldn't suggest the throat communicator. I used my friend's that he got with MW2 and they are very uncomfortable, and a lot of times your friends can't hear you.

    Ice T and Body Count did a great job on their Gears of War theme.



    LYRICS:

    [INTRO] Coalition of Order Governments!

    Gold Lancers, Longshots and Drone Guts
    C-O-G got the squad got a blood lust
    Unleash the Krill **** a boom shield
    The Hammer of Dawn'll make the Locust Kneel

    I'm a Hammerburst pro
    Headshot Berserkers with the Torque Bow
    I give a **** about Horde
    OG Marcus Fenix from the Pendulum Wars


    Never Enough
    We want more
    Body parts and brains
    Blood on the floor
    Never Afraid
    We've been here before
    We are the Gears of War
    Gears of War


    The Theron Guard tryin' to go hard
    ****in Snipers tryin' to peel my cap
    Make 'em fall back with a mortar attack
    Dark Wretches on my *** get played with an Ink Grenade

    Don't make me torch ya with a Scorcher
    Corpsers he got with the Boomshot
    Blast you with my Gnasher

    We are here to destroy those who oppose
    Double barrel to your face
    *shotgun fires*
    We do not negotiate

    Boomers get mulched up
    My chainsaw's all you feel
    Either that or cold steel


    Never Enough
    We want more
    Body parts and brains
    Blood on the floor
    Never Afraid
    We've been here before
    We are the Gears of War
    Gears of War
    [x2]


    Locust Horde Attack
    COG Attack


    Never Enough
    We want more
    Body parts and brains
    Blood on the floor
    Never Afraid
    We've been here before
    We are the Gears of War
    Gears of War
