Four-player Co-op Has Been Confirmed For Gears of War 3

I’m betting all the pocket lint that I have that just about everyone saw the new Gears of War 3 trailer, which officially debuted last night along with the official, and obvious, announcement of the game’s release. After the ogling of the dramatic video which depicted a much older Dom, and his battle-weary comrades (new and old) fighting of the Locusts, the Internet has been filled with all sorts of sensationalist articles following a barrage of fan and anti-fan commentaries and “debates.” The gloomy action sequence from the video wasn’t enough to spark interest in the third installment of the series, apparently, though. How about some lime juice to go with that open wound?

Lead designer Clifford Bleszkinksi (aka Cliffy B.) wanted everyone to go a bit wilder by adding confirmation to a speculative rumor that was bouncing around the industry regarding co-op in Gears of War 3. Via his Twitter, Cliffy B. has confirmed that Gears of War 3 co-op will, in fact, allow up to four players to team up and make swiss cheese out of the Locust Horde.

Those of you familiar with the previous installments of the series will recall that the games only allowed two players to partner up through the story mode, despite the fact that the squad was almost always made up of a tight group of four. With Gears of War 3 approaching next year, players will be able to construct a solid group of four friends – or strangers – and take up arms against the group of uglies running rampant everywhere.

Who are you guys looking forward to get your hands dirty with? I call dibs on Dom.
