Kevin Unangst, senior producer at Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business, hopes that Gears 3 will be able to convert FPS gamers who enjoy the Halo and Call of Duty games into third person shooter types.
“It is the biggest and best Gears we’ve done, it is our blockbuster and a huge, huge release for us,” he said. Unangst thinks that Gears 3’s new FPS inspired game modes like Team Deathmatch will help the game appear to a wider audience. “Personally I play Team Deathmatch a lot and they’ve got that so I’m personally quite excited,” Unangst added. “I think it’s going to be huge. Adding modes like that is important because there’s a lot of Halo and Call of Duty players so it’s another way we can bring [those] players to Gears of War.”
We’re all certainly excited about Gears 3, but is there honestly that much difference between third and first person shooter gameplay?
