5 Things the Gears of War 3 Teaser Tells Us
Teaser trailers are usually just an excuse for publishers to show the game's logo, but last night's footage from Gears of War 3 shown on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' actually revealed quite a lot. Here's a selection of what we saw and what it could mean, a word of warning though this will contain a few spoilers:
It's behind you!Dom has a beard -
That's a nice looking weapon.Facial hair in videogames typically means that characters have fallen off the rails, a la Sam Fisher in Splinter Cell Conviction before its redesign. We can expect Dom to be still mourning for his deceased wife and more moping around. There were a few shots of Dom looking sorrowfully at the ash statues littering the destroyed city featured in the trailer, so again this could mean he's still grieving.
Now Dom has a beard he really means business.Anya using a Gun? -
Could it be Anya? We think so.Now this would be new ground for a macho-minded franchise! The presence of a blonde female soldier and the fact that she is helping Dom up means that Anya will be taking a more hands on approach during battles in the third game. The fact that this unconfirmed soldier is helping a squad member reaffirms that she has an existing connection with them, therefore Anya is the only logical choice.
A New Threat -
Every sequel needs to raise the bar and it seems as though both the Locusts and Humanity will have to deal with a new tentacle foe. Sporting a nice shade of racing green, these organisms seem to kill indiscriminately.
We all fight together! -
The scope of the trailer is absolutely epic, showing a huge battle which involves the entire COG squad as well as dozens of Locust soldiers. Now to us this has the unmistakeable feel of finality to it, like Halo 3's 'Finish the Fight' trailer. Whether this means this will be the concluding chapter of a trilogy remains to be seen, but it would make a lot of sense if Gears of War 3 was some kind of a conclusion to an existing story arc.
Double Barrelled Shotgun -
At least one new weapon will be added to the Gears of War's arsenal and that's a snub-nosed double barrelled shotgun. The gun of choice when you need to save your best buddy from an incoming Locust attack.
