Gears of War 3

Release Date: September 20, 2011
Platform: Xbox 360

The next entry in Epic Games' critically acclaimed series, Gears of War 3 promises an extensive single-player campaign continuing the story of Marcus Fenix and his team as they struggle to survive against a new enemy that's out to destroy human and locust alike. Gears of War 3 will also feature co-operative modes for up to four players, a first for the series, and Beast Mode, where players take on the role of the Locusts and battle against the COG.

The Silverback mechs, previously shown in the Horde mode presentation during Microsoft's conference, will also make a couple appearances in the campaign. Marcus and company aren't the most agile characters, so it's surprising to see that the Silverbacks are responsive and fast, unlike most mechs in games. The Silverbacks are equipped with a turret, but they can also be used as deployable cover when unoccupied.
