It’s turning into a rather sad time in the gaming community, with a lot of popular games series coming to an end. We’ve recently said goodbye to Kratos with the release of God of War III, as well as farewell to Kane with the conclusion of the Tiberium saga in Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight. Now Epic Games have announced the release date of the final installment of the Gears of War series.
Gears of War 3 is set to blast its way onto the Xbox 360 on 5 April 2011 in the US, 7 April 2011 in Japan and 8 April 2011 in Europe and the rest of the world. You can view the 'Ashes to Ashes' trailer for the game on the Gears of War site.
“When we released ‘Gears of War’ more than three years ago, we set out to tell the world an unforgettable story of bravery and sacrifice in the face of insurmountable odds, and a year from now, players will get the chance to experience the final chapter in the story of Marcus Fenix and his companions in Delta Squad,” said Cliff Bleszinski, design director at Epic Games. “This is definitely the biggest and most dramatic chapter yet in the ‘Gears of War’ saga, and we can’t wait to deliver it.”
