Gears of War 3 Release Date Set For September 20th

Posted By | On 23rd, Feb. 2011 Under Industry News, News

After originally stating that Gears of War 3 would become available in April, the date was pushed back for something I presume to be a feature in the game.  Microsoft has confirmed that Gears of War 3 will be released on September 20th, 2011 for the Xbox 360. The game will pick up 18 months after Jacinto sunk into the ocean..oops spoiler.  The game will have the same familiar main cast along with Anya suiting up for battle in this one.  Gears of War 3 will have dedicated servers upon release (praise the gods!) and the beta for the multiplayer will begin soon provided you own Bulletstorm.. new of course, as a used copy won’t cut it, if you want in on the beta.  The full game will also have 4-player co-op.

    That’s what i like about gears, that it has co op on the campaign, that’s what really hurt KZ3 aside from the story. I think if it would of offered an online MP co op experience it would have gotten 90s all around. I’m kinda excited for gears only because I’m dying to find out what kind of stupidity MS is doing to implement the stupid kinect bullshhhh into this game lol. Aqua Out!!!

    • I agree, I think every game should have some sort of co-op in the game. I mean that’s what people want… that’s what I want!

      @Jim, I just think that’s the new standard dude, you know. Like MP is really becoming like the campaign of the game, and the actual campaign is becoming like a small little side game. I don’t know about you guys, but I really don’t want that, I will always, ALWAYS chose campaign over MP in terms of development. Like I love the MP aspect and in actuality it’s what gives the games we buy its legs, for long term use. But that’s exactly how i feel about KZ3 from all these reviews that I read, single player has great set pieces but story was atrocious, but the MP is phenomenal. They need to find balance. With co op now becoming a thing of future gaming, I think it’s imperative that they learn to balance development. All in all, I still love you and will throw my money at anything future KZ games that Guerrilla develops because they seem to be more consumer oriented than anything else, that’s always a great thing. Aqua Out!!!

    Kinnect can work with a controller as well from what i understand. I could be pretty cool having the game detect certain gross motor motions for things like reloading and weapon swapping, while using the controller for more fine motor things, like aiming. Either way, it’s sure to be optional.

    Yay multiplayer co-op, unlike KZ, yay real campaign that actually will clock in some time unlike KZ. Over all the exclusives MS could have grabbed now that halo is done, this will be the one that keeps their console and online service worth the price of admission.
