Gears of War 3 Opening Cut Scene
Gears of War 3 has gone gold folks, and while cutting up their giant GOW themed cake, Epic Games saw fit to release the opening cinematic for everyone’s viewing pleasure. Here it is:
In what is more of a catchup than an introduction to the next game, Anya Stround lets us in on what’s been going on since the first Gears of War and before. She tells of how the Locust invaded, causing the humans to use their Hammer of Dawn weapon to destroy their own cities. This in turn led to the sinking of the last human settlement to finally put down the threat, though even after retreating to the last sanctuary, “a remote island”, a new enemy emerged, the Lambent.
The new game picks up with the last survivors of humanity taking to their remaining ships and some heading back to the main land. She finishes the trailer with the final though, “I guess we’re all stranded now.”
Gears of War 3 is set to land on our doorsteps and on the shelves on September 20th. It’s an Xbox 360 exclusive.
