Gears of War 3 - April 8, 2011

By Dog of Thunder, 9 years ago
A few days later than intended, the latest worst kept secret in gaming history was unveiled when Cliff Bleszinski made his appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Coming along for the ride with him was "Ashes to Ashes" the first trailer for Gears of War 3.

The full segment is now online courtesy of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:

Jump to 2:08 for the start of the trailer, which showcases the boys from Delta squad making what looks to be a last stand against the familiar Locust and some unfamiliar beast as well. The rumored new variant of tentacled, creeper Locust can be seen.....attacking the Locust grunts? Could Gears of War 3 be a three-way fight?

Another point of interest is a female in COG armor with blond hair. Anya getting down and dirty this time maybe?

Finally, the tag line at the end of the trailer "Brothers to The End" which then fades out to simply read...."The End."

Gears of War was always meant to be a trilogy and from the looks of things, Epic is going to close out the story of the boys from Delta Squad.

Cliff Bleszinski has confirmed that yes, the blond female in the COG armor is indeed Anya via his Twitter feed:

He also later confirmed that the campaign will have 4-player co-op.

Arriving next week on April 20th is Avatar versions of the Gears of War 3 COG armor in both male and female variants. Check out the pics at
