Gears of War 3 to drop Sept. 20
The release date is just the beginning. Tomorrow there will be lots more info...
Epic Games' third installment of its Gears of War series has an official launch date: Sept. 20. The game's executive producer, Rod Ferugsson, said that there will be much more information coming out about the highly anticipated game.
Computer and Video Games reported that the release, which was expected in April, was delayed by business concerns, not because of the game quality.
The game will have new multiplayer modes as well as five-on-five multiplayer and four-player co-op campaigns. It will also have new maps and weapons.
The press release also hinted at a multiplayer public beta coming soon, which developers have been teasing on Twitter.
Design director Cliff Bleszinski told the Associated Press that the public beta of the multiplayer mode will launch this spring and is "just as much a bug-finding mission as it is a marketing exercise." It will have a "team deathmatch" and let players play as the Locust Horde, the game's antagonists.
