Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski, otherwise known as Cliffy B, went up on stage with three of his buddies to show of the first ever gameplay footage of Gears of War 3. Aside from constantly ogling the hot girl playing the game, many of you will set your attention to the look that the characters of the game have taken on (Dom with a beard, etc.), as well as a new character or two that have made their acquaintances with the elite squad from the previous games. The four people on stage took 360 remotes and went nuts on a newly introduced four-player co-op – a first in the Gears of War franchise.
The game doesn’t look too different from the other games, personally. Then again, I haven’t played the game first-hand to make that call. The game, as usual, looks amazing, though. Running rampant through a large land full of vegetation as you fight your way through Locusts is a first that I’ve seen in the series, as, if you recall, the games usually take place in dark, gritty locations. It’s refreshing to see the game in a “new light.” Stay tuned for some impressions later on.
