Gears of War 3 will be the last game in the current story-arc that has spanned the three Gears’.
Four-player co-op, the first in the series, will be a major new mechanic that Gears 3 will boast. Within in the four-player co-op will be four new playable female characters, not necessarily a new mechanic but more of a statement about the gender wall that is quickly crumbling down around video games.
Multiplayer gains a new mode, entitled “Beast Mode”…think of Gears 2‘s “Horde Mode” but where you get to play as the Locusts, too.
Gears 3 has a launch date of September 20th, 2011.
