Thumbs up All the Gears 3 info right here *Updated here first*


This thread cover all the Gears 3 related info you need. The entire thread was recently removed so quite a bit of news was lost. However the most important and recent Gears info can be found in this OP. If you have any new info to add please post it in this thread. This thread is meant to be the one-stop-shop for all Gears 3 news.




PAX 2011 Multiplayer changes vid:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PRE-ORDER BONUS CHARACTERS

There are 4 pre-order exclusive characters. In order to get them you need to pre-order the game at specific retailers. Below is a list regarding who and where:

Savage Kantus (Amazon): http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/image...ntus_large.jpg

Commando Dom (EBgames/Gamestop): http://www.gamestop.ca/gs/images/bon...s3bonus_LG.jpg

Mechanic Baird (Best Buy): http://forums.epicgames.com/attachme...0702279%20%209

Savage Grenadier Elite (Wal-Mart): http://i54.tinypic.com/6p7zwy.jpg

In order to unlock Griffin in multiplayer all you have to do is 'like' Gears of War on facebook and input the code on your 360. Here is a direct link. http://www.facebook.com/gearsofwar?s...26086684151640
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SEASON PASS

Gears 3 will be offering a season pass which is a one time purchase of the first 4 main dlc packs for the game. The pass will cost 2400 msp which is a 33% discount compared to if you were to buy each pack individually. The Pass will also give you an exclusive liquid metal skin for each of the five starting weapons. The first dlc pack ill be out in November and the next 3 will release throughout 2012.

PURCHASABLE WEAPON SKINS

Gears 3 will also be providing over 100 weapon skins to purchase with msp.
Here is a breakdown:
There are 21 weapons skin sets. 1 set includes the lancer, hammerburst, retro, gnasher and sawed-off skins. Sets can either be 'static' or 'animated'. 'Static' is a basic skin with a design that doesn't move. An 'animated' skin looks something like this:
Rainbow Lancer - YouTube


-1 static set will cost you 240 MSP
-1 animated set will cost you 320MSP
-You can also buy a gun collection which is all 21 skins for a specific gun. That will run you 1200 MSP Not that the 2 shotguns are bundled together for the same price. This is due to the sawed-off having less space for the skin design so the effect is lessened.

-Alternatively you can buy all the weapon skins (105 in total) for a grand total of 3600 MSP. This is 37% cheaper than if you bought everything individually (the total would be 5700 MSP).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Official Gears 3 forums have a few threads which have so much info about the game that I thought I'd post it all here in a new thread so it can be seen easily. The first 5 links are updated by many gears forum members so be sure to check back every once in a while.

Here is a thread covering pretty much everything (storyline, beta, features, maps, etc):

Gears Of War 3 - Season Pass
(Posted same comment on other thread
Just read this, sounds awesome - savings on DLC is always welcome, and knowing you've paid for the gears DLC in advance sounds pretty sweet to me. Seing as EPIC do kick ass DLC - Im sold!! - Also another couple of sources:

I love that games are starting to do this and I'm all for it. I bought the Rockstar pass for L.A.Noire and still don't even have the game yet!
In this case we pretty much get 1 dlc pack free and a weapon skin set if we 'lock-in' our money ahead of time.

However it should be known that 2 gears 3 maps (Azura and Rustlung) have been cut from the retail disc. I've seen leaked gameplay clips of the maps and it seems Epic (or Microsoft) chose to hold it and use it for dlc. The maps were completely done and I wouldn't be surprised to see them show up as dlc. Whether they will come at a price is yet to be known.

Hahhah Ye same, I bought LA Noire (got 1000G) then traded it in, yet still bought that deal after, cause I know I will buy it back and that it will have saved me some cash$$ lol
Anyone know who that character is at all ?

The maps that have been cut, have kinda pissed me off! - Why ? I hate when developers do this, they've made em and yet there using em to get more cash outta us later.Sorta annoyed by that one, yet I know I will still buy.lol -
I would rather they make more maps. - Still can't complain, the deal seems pretty sweet to me, I bet EPIC (to be fair) were the ones who have done this

i dont get why season pass is not limited time offer. surely they should get every1 buying it in a rush and attract more buyers by making it limited because once all the DLC is on the market place individually, nobody will buy them. every1 will got for the cheap option (season pass) unless u get the occasional few who buy the DLC because it's cheaper short term. tbh, it's just over £21 or $30, who can't afford that?

The season pass is basically the Gears 3 'All-Fronts' bundle. unless you already bought 2 dlc packs, the deal is still worth it. Of course there will be other discounts and such but if you want all the dlc as it comes out (and the weapon skins) then the pass is well worth it.

ik it'll be like the all fronts bundle, but i just wonder if u instantly get the map packs on release with it without having to download them. if so, then technically downloading the pass is downloading the map packs pre-release date, which would mean they could possibley be glitched and accessed for release.

It's probably just an unlock code. Once the dlc is released on XBL then the code will activate and download the dlc automatically.

They'll download when they're ready to be downloaded.

Apparently it was the host for fanboys and trolls to argue. So a Mod chose to remove everything and restart the thread.

Rod has stated that they will be giving away the green skins for normal players. They were developer exclusives in the beta.

The COG codes are for minor Gears stuff from what I have seen so far. Mostly printouts like certificates, 3D poster, and papercraft stuff. Nothing in game. Have to have a Facebook to do it which I do not. Found info in this thread. has pics of the stuff.
http://forums.epicgames.com/showthread.php?t=814531

Not sure how the "Walls" thing is going to work either. I know you can invite friends to it through FB, but that's all I know.
Might create a BS FB just to check this stuff out.

thnx. according to the updates on the thread it's a marketing promotion as an incentive to buy something they're selling. i can't remember why, but i think the 4 pieces of DLC u get from season pass arn't all the DLC that will be released, so i'm guessing the green guns will come with the other DLC items.

I have no idea how to make one or get one. If anyone would like to step up and post one here then I'll gladly add it to the OP.

i suggest that the set will come with DLC just like the LM skin set comes exclusively with the season pass. since the 4 DLCs pre-purchased are "the first four", that implies that there's more DLC to come, so i suggest that the green liquid skins will be included with any of or a collection of them.

The green skins will be free. They will be part of a special promotion so I doubt they will be bundled with dlc.

ye, just like the LM are "free" with the season pass
plus, it is a promotion or a 'bonus'. ur not paying for the skins, ur paying for the DLC, and the skins come with it as something extra for free and not included with the price.

The LM skins are part of the season pass which costs money. They are not free. In order to get the skins you need to pay money. The green skins will be free similar to how Griffin was free if you 'liked' Gears 3 on Facebook. I don't know the details but I highly doubt they will 'only' be bundled with something that costs money.

oooo i think i've worked it out =D since it's available to normal players, that basically means anyone who plays gears 3. they dont have to go on facebook or social networking or on the internet at all to get them. i bet they will be part of a promotion on xbox live for playing the game at a certain time, like the way they're just tossing out the gold lancer and hammerburst to everyone who plays the game week 1. so i recon on a particular weekend or perhaps for anyone who plays during the week of christmas, who knows?

that way, all kinds of players will have the chance to unlock them. they might even make it similar to the beta where each day/week/month unlocks a different liquid green weapon or possibley even make us perform a few tasks within that time period to unlock them too. again, who knows?

That's what I hope.

Also I found a Gears countdown clock but I can't copy it over for some reason.
http://gearsofwaraddicts.com/categor...r-3-countdown/

Anyone want to give it a try?

UPDATE: Dust to Dust Cinematic trailer is here
I love the General RAAM reference at the beginning and how Delta's armor changes midway through the trailer.

Be sure to try this out. Play the Gears 'Mad World' trailer, then play/watch the 'Dust to Dust' trailer on mute at the same time. If you do it right the 'Mad World' song syncs up perfectly to the new trailer.


First line starts right as the first locusts emerge
"all around me are familiar faces"
Camera pans back to marcus, an explosion throws a locust to the ground
"worn out places, worn out faces"
The building gets flooded
"i want to drown out all my sorrow"
Marcus looks outside as days pass quickly
"no tomorrow, no tomorrow..."
The camera pans in a circle
"people run in circles"
The brothers to the end screen pops up
"mad world"

Where can a download one from a trustworthy site? How do I attach it and set it as a file in a forum?

I've come across many countdown timers but I never know how to paste into the forum.
