E3 2010: Gears of War 3 Beast Mode Hands On - Turning the Tables
Written Thursday, June 24, 2010 By Dan Webb
View author's profile

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take control of a blind hulking goliath that definitely doesn't win points in the brains department? No, I'm not talking about getting behind the reigns of David Blunkett, not even I'm that harsh, I'm actually talking about the Gears of War Berserker. In what is a turn up against the books, Epic turned up at this year’s E3 to show off their new Gears of War 3 mode, Beast, and whilst Valve were certainly heralded for their brave move with the Left 4 Dead Versus mode, I have a feeling that Beast will be just as big a hit for Epic. In a nutshell, it's Horde, but you're the Locust... Mind blowing, right? Okay, maybe not, but it is certainly one of the most addictive modes I've played since... well, since Horde.

Unlike its COG-flavoured brother, Horde, Gears of War 3’s Beast mode not only lets you step into the shoes of the standard Locust – the same way that you do in the game’s multiplayer – but it actually lets you choose from a large subset of the different variations... even the brand spanking new enemies. That means that each of the characters you can select have strengths, weaknesses and special abilities – whether it’s the Kantus’ revival of downed comrades or the Berserker smash. It’s not just a case of everyone picking Berserkers though and stomping the opposition out of sight. Far from it. Not only do you have to unlock the later levels of more advanced Locust by progressing further, but you have to carefully manage the tokens that you get as well – a Ticker and a Wretch are obviously cheaper to buy than a Mauler or a Grinder.

Much like the Horde mode though, as you progress further, the harder the opposition will get, as you start off fighting against the lowly Scavenger COG, before working your way up to start taking down Marcus, Dom and co. Not only will the famed COG activate security systems and automated turrets around the level, but the pesky buggers will also take advantage of Mech suits dotted around the map and cause a nuisance by taking up position on the static gun turrets.

On show at this year’s E3 was a single solitary map, Mercy, which brought with it a handful of waves to battle through. The Mercy map was an outdoors map set in an open courtyard with the almost obligatory Gears of War fountain in the middle. It was an asymmetrical map with plenty of vantage points on either side with more than its fair share of cover and COG turrets on either side, with a small, shallow interior on the lower side. As far as maps go, it was your standard Gears of War fare with nothing too outrageous, although like the recent screenshots, it was a little bit more colourful... oh, and a lot prettier as well.

Let’s get on to the bit that you all probably care about the most... the Locust; how effective they are and what sort of cool things you can do with them.

In the lowest tier of beasties you get to take control of the Wretch and the Ticker. The Wretch is your standard fodder enemy who needs to stay out of the open and take the COG by surprise. Devastating up close, but getting up close and personal is the tricky part. The Ticker on the other hand is a personal favourite and is a little quicker on his feet. Granted, they can’t take much lead before they explode, but if you can right on the COG’s toes and pull the trigger, their suicidal blast is devastating and a direct hit is a one-hit kill.

Slightly more expensive on the tokens front are your traditional Grenadier Elites who come equipped with a shotgun and a handful of grenades – they can even rip off the arm of a downed COG combatant and beat them to death with it as their execution move – and the Kantus, who have the extra ability of reviving your teammates from a distance, thus making him a valuable addition to your Locust line-up. Then there are your Armoured Kantus, who may be mostly bulletproof but seemed to pale in comparison to the other Locust, and your Serapedes, who are new to the Gears of War universe and are underground centipede like creatures that has an electricity charged attack.

At the top of the Christmas tree – but not the angel on the top – are your Boomers: the Mauler, the Grinder – with the devastating mini-gun – and the new Savage Boomer. Whilst it’s fun to run around and swing the Mauler’s flail and use their shield to creep closer to the COGs and spray bullets with the Grinder’s chain-gun, they both come second best to the new Savage Boomer. A giant of a beast, the Savage Boomer is armed with a Digger Launcher, which fires projectiles that burrow underground until they meet their intended destination and explode. Particularly useful against turrets and COG hidden behind cover, in fact, extremely useful in any combat situation.

The pinnacle of the Locust enemy types is the Berserker and there is nothing more satisfying than charging through the COG frontline and smashing Dom in the face. It’s something that most of us have wanted to do since Gears 2 and you’re a liar if you say otherwise. The Berserker is as you would expect. Powerful, expensive and blind as a bat. They’re not totally blind though, but Epic have done a great job to recreate what it would be like for the strongest of the Locust race by blurring the outsides of the screen and leaving you with a fairly limited tunnel of vision.

The new Beast mode is sure to delight stalwart fans of the franchise and most definitely adds more depth to Gears of War 3. Along with 4 player co-op, Horde mode, Beast mode and of course, the game’s standard multiplayer modes, there aren’t many more games on the market that offer so much content under one roof – except maybe Left 4 Dead. Beast, despite the name, is a charming mode and one with a ton of replayability and more importantly, it’s a blast to play. Literally... especially if you’re a Ticker.

Gears of War 3 is out April 5th in North America and April 8th in Europe.

I'm pretty sure it's been answered elsewhere, but I have a question. If it's just like horde but vice versa then wouldn't it be impossible to win playing as the ticker if you're playing by yourself, or do you have a set amount of lives.

I wish the berserker couldn't see unless something made a noise or got into its range of smell, like it is in the game. Even then it should be some weird thermal/night vision blended view, not just a normal view with the sides cut down.

#18 He's talking about Elites.

And no #16, a "Halo 2" would be having Locust as an enemy, then as a player character up 'til the third game, then they only show up in cutscenes or co-op and you fight their retarded, boring teammates that look strangely like gorillas, over and over again (Sires/Brutes).

But yeah, I hope this doesn't go Halo 3 on us.

The A.I needs to be stepped up if this is going to be a worthwhile game mode.

Gears is by far my favorite video game franchise to date. It cemented 3rd person shooters in the video game market and revolutionised cover in all video games. I know I prolly sound like a fan boy and admitedly I am a little bit. I can see Gears 3 being one of the if not the best shooter next year but only if EPIC fixes that damn host bullshit and gets dedicated servers so skill will actually be a factor in who wins games online.

On topic this mode looks amazing and I cant wait to play it. Hopefully EPIC includes a little taste of this mode in their multiplayer beta this fall.

gears is def my favorite video game series for the 360 (kingdom hearts wins it all) but i really hope they add some new game types and maybe some dedicated servers to this game. i would buy gears 3 as is with no questions asked and be thrilled with it, but i just hope it is way over the top with how much stuff they throw in there, and maybe fix some glitches too :) lol

kingdom hearts was an O.K. game, just like gears



The first gears was great... but the second was mediocre at best, and can anyone tell me what the heck is going on with the story line? ya, thats what i thought

Really looking forward to this game, but please Epic, take a leaf out of Bungie's book and implement a Theater Mode/Bungie.net system to allow a perfect method for screenshots. I've created some huge poster sized images from Halo, and i would love to do the same with Gears. Please make it so!

And for anyone who is interested, the Halo posters can be found here -

For me, Gears of War was the reason I stayed on 360. 1st one was great, online was crap. 2nd one was just as great and for all the problems it had I still put more online time then any other game. So I'm definately getting pretty itchy to play this one.

@ 37 deicated servers are pretty much like having Epic host the game for us instead of some random guy living in his moms basement or some college kid stealing wifi from McDonalds. Having dedicated servers would hopefully get rid of a lot of lag if its done right ( Im looking at you EA ) and it will also get rid of the whole host advantage thing in online games. So its a good thing all around if Epic can pull it off.

@23 Try reading the books it might give you a better understanding of the game! Theres nothing wrong with the story.Cant wait for this game i actually prefer the co-op side of the game as to multi-player,so this 4 player c0-0p should be fantastic! And they definately need to sort out servers & glitches....This should be the best yet,shame we need to wait til april,should have been a xmas release.

Halo: Reach also offers more content than Gears.

But i will be getting this!!! Was playing Gears the other day and i think the best thing about it is the fact that it has AI Bots in the custom games area, that makes it awesome to play on your own!

Writing this has made me remember Timesplitters 4, BRING BACK TIMESPLITTERS 4!!!

Lol @46. Beastmode (ON) is one of the dumbest things people put in their profile. Gears was fun for a while but I got damn sick of it. The lag and host quitting after being repeatedly handled just drove me crazy. Give me some servers and Ill play for a good long while.

@10 I think Cliff said that you have a set number of points at the beginning of the round. Then you buy the character you wanna be and when your playing you earn points for hits and kills on the COG and for reviving teammates. I think for the Ticker you get a hell of a lot of points if you can blow up a COG but it cost less than say a Drone and you don't win many points if you blow up yourself. But lets wait and see.

looks gay just like the rest of gears but since i am a huge fan of the left 4 dead series, beast mode might be interesting. I'll wait until it is used or on sale for $40 or less. Currently, i put $150 a few months ago into the Legendary version of Halo:Reach.

I'm so glad this isn't replacing horde. As awsome as this sounds I think I would have missed horde had this just replaced it. Another welcome addition. On another note however I hope they change up horde. It got kind of repetitive expecting the same wave everytime.

The berserker should use a sonar system or something e.g- black but any noise or smells glow red so you can sense them out, would be more realistic tbh.

This game mode looks pretty badass though cannot wait!

This is going to be sick...I've been a huge gears fan ever since the series hit the shelves in '05. I think something like beast mode is exactly what the series needs to stay in contention with some of the elite series such as Halo and COD. Hopefully this isn't the last gears of war made...

This sounds like a brilliant idea that shouldv'e been executed in the second game, but the third is still OK with me. Just started getting back into GoW2 so can't wait till 2011 for #3!
