Gears of War 3 now in stores

Xbox 360 exclusive shooter launches today at retailers worldwide

Posted on
Microsoft and Epic Games have announced that Gears of War 3 hit store shelves today, with more than 20,000 retailers worldwide marking the occasion with midnight events.

The launch of Gears of War 3 kicked off the biggest season of blockbuster games in the history of Xbox 360,” said Microsoft Corporate Vice President Phil Spencer.“The team at Epic Games has raised the bar yet again and we’re extremely excited to see fans around the world get their hands on the game and jump into the action.”

This is our biggest Gears game yet, and even though it’s the third installment in the trilogy, it’s the easiest to jump into if you’re a new fan,” said Epic Games Design Director Cliff Bleszinski. “We’ve added more co-operative gameplay options and built in accessibility features throughout the game to make it approachable and fun for new players and series veterans alike.”

Gears of War 3 is the conclusion to plot of the franchise. The last bastion of humanity lies in ruins, and amidst the shattered remnants of civilisation and ominous whispers of almost certain extinction, Marcus Fenix and Delta Squad must take up their Lancers and make one final stand for survival against the cataclysmic threat of the infected Lambent horde.

Developed exclusively for Xbox 360, Gears of War 3 is available worldwide in three distinct editions– Standard, Limited, and Epic.
