In the upcoming sci-fi third person shooter/action title Gears of War 3 gamers of the Xbox Live variety will actually be able to decide the fate of the rookie character known as Carmine. Clayton Carmine is the full name, don’t wear it out. This rookie or otherwise known as “noob” character will be making his appearance in the third installment of the series on Xbox 360 and have the chance to actually survive through it unlike his previous rookie peers Anthony and Ben. In order to cast your vote for death or life in the fate of this man gamers will have the chance to buy Xbox Live avatar clothing such as a black shirt reading “Save Carmine” or a red shirt that says “Carmine Must Die”. As the winner of over 30 “Game of the Year” awards, this title is one that many shooter fans are clamoring for and is probably on everybody’s holiday wish list (even if you aren’t the biggest Epic Games fan). These digital shirts will be on sale in the Xbox Live Marketplace starting July 29th.
In addition to this special offering of fan input and avatar gear Epic Games is also letting the attendees of Comic Con be ‘among the first’ to check out Beast Mode for Gears of War 3 hands-on at the Xbox booth where Cliff Bleszinski, Rod Fergusson, and Karen Traviss will be on deck to sign their name to your heart’s content. At the NECA booth there will also be real life versions of the shirts sold. Sounds like an interesting day for Gears fans.
