Gears of War 3 Campaign Preview
The final chapter in the Gears trilogy will soon draw to a close, and we're pretty sure that this isn't the last time that we'll visit the Gears universe, though the current story arc will come to an end in Gears of War 3. Karen Traviss, the author of the Gears novels will be penning the story and design director Cliff Bleszinski has stated that it is a much more personal story this time around, with many of the unanswered questions being addressed. You've already seen and may have possibly played the multiplayer modes during the beta, so by now, you should know all the details of Horde mode and Beast mode. At this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo, Epic Games gave us a glimpse of what the campaign would be like from a different perspective, more specifically from the eyes of Cole and Baird. At a recent press event, we played a sizeable chunk of the campaign--all of act one--to get a feel for just how big Epic is going with the final game.
