For months, Cliffy-B and Epic Games have promised that Gears 3 would be the most polished and balanced installment of the beloved TPS series. Today, the studio released a teaser for the new campaign and although there was unfortunately no actual gameplay footage, the short trailer assures us that there will be no shortage of action-packed goodness.
Though there’s not a whole lot we can ascertain, the trailer does feature a digital S.O.S. from the mysterious Adam Fenix, Marcus’ father. Clearly, he’ll play a big role in Gears 3 and assuming that a successful rendezvous occurs between father and son, he’ll most likely have a master plan for dealing with the Locust threat.
The trailer can be seen below, and if gigantic, mammoth sized boss battles aren’t enough to whet your appetite for September, then enjoy the bad-ass riffs of Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” while you picture yourself mercilessly curb stomping some Locust scum. Nice touch Epic, nice touch.
Gears of War 3 drops everywhere on September 20.
