Gears of War 3's Easter Egg Hunt

By Jonathan Barnes, 5 years ago
A small bit of news came out of Cliff Bleszinski's speech at GDC 2011 yesterday. While his speech was focused around "Power Creatives in Gaming" he did let loose a few tidbits about Epic's upcoming Gears of War 3.

While everyone knows that Epic wants you to play their games A LONG TIME (cough, cough Seriously 2.0 cough, cough), Cliffy is about keeping things on the lighter side as well. Specifically we're talking about "Easter Eggs". In regards to what gamers can expect from Gears 3, Cliffy remarked that it would take gamers "months if not years" to find all of them.

Personally, I think one or two people will find them, post them on Youtube and then have them unleashed on the world, but if Rocksteady's comments about the "secret room" in https://www.trueachievements.com/Batman-Arkham-Asylum-x....htm have taught us anything, it's that some of us gamers might have lost our Zelda-chops when it comes to finding secrets.

Nevertheless, Easter Eggs are awesome. My personal favorite has always been the Ewok in the original Dark Forces for PC. With that in mind, what's your favorite Easter Egg?

Gears of War 3 is scheduled for a worldwide release on September 20th.
