It's been delayed several times since it's original April release but gears fans, rev up those Lancers because we are almost a month away until the highly anticipated release of Gears of War 3! The third and final installment in Epic's Gears of War series will features the adventures of Marcus Fenix and the rest of Delta squad as they try to exterminate the Locust and Lambent forces. During this third person shooter game, not only will you play as Marcus Fenix but many other characters as well. This third person shooter is the successor to the first two Gears of War games, which are said to be two of the best games for the Xbox console. This game also features many multi-player modes like the new and improved Horde 2.0. Essentially you pick a base in the map and use points from kills to upgrade defenses around your base while holding out as long as you can. "Beast" mode is a new mode similar to Horde 2.0 except from the other point of view. As the Locust you will have to kill survivors until you gain enough points to upgrade into a stronger Locust. For example you could go from a Ticker to a Wretch to a Drone and then a Kantus. This IS one of the most anticipated games of 2011 and what will probably be the best game on the Xbox 360 this year, Gears of War 3 is a must have for any Xbox owner. September 20th 2011, will be a day to remember because we will have been blessed with the graces of Gears 3.
