Spec Ops: The Line Developers Prep New Game, Tease Announcement Soon

The team behind the daring and rather intense action/drama Spec Ops: The Line are on the cusp of announcing their next project.  We’ve already known that Yager have been working on something once Spec Ops finally arrived at retail last Summer, but now we have a few more details on the project and a tease of things to come.

Gears of War Movie Being Shopped Around Hollywood Again

Most of the time when a video game is going the film route and hits a wall during production it’s usually stalled for good.  Sure, there are some rare exceptions at times such as the Doom movie lingering in development for nearly a decade before it finally hit theaters, but even when a video game movie has attached star power, such as Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx in Kane & Lynch, production can be shuttered for good.

Fresh Gears of War: Judgement Multiplayer Footage

The fact that the Gears of War franchise is continuing past Gears 3 is indeed odd since it seemed like the series had some much desired closure. With a bunch of characters dead, the Locust seemingly a thing of the past, and Marcus finally able to shack up with Anya and have blonde haired kids with burly muscles, it was believed that gamers had seen the last of Gears. Jump to E3 last month and Microsoft pulled a fast one on us with the reveal of Gears of War: Judgment, a new prequel revolving around Cole, Baird, and a new motley crew of COG soldiers.

Gears of War 3: The Horde Command Pack Incoming on November 1st.

Microsoft announced today details for the very first batch of downloadable content for Epic Games' Gears of War 3 will hitting the Xbox Live Marketplace on November 1st called Gears of War 3: The Horde Command Pack.

The Horde Command Pack will bring 3 new multiplayer maps, new fortification upgrades, two new weapon skins, three new playable multiplayer characters and new achievements to unlock that will boost your Gamerscore by 250 points.

Gears of War 3 Launch Party [Event]

Over the last little while Microsoft has been running a competition of the ARG (Alternate Reality Game) type with the final round granting those who had completed the challenges and opportunity to attend a Gears 3 launch party at one of two Canadian locations. The challenges involved puzzle solving, location hunting, meat-gathering and all sorts of other non-sense that lead to a location of a barge docked in the harbour at the north end of Main Street (for us Vancouverites anyways).

Gears of War 3 Gets A Season Pass

With the launch of Gears of War 3 just barely three weeks away, Microsoft and Epic announces their own Season Pass that will be available to purchase alongside with the game's release on September 20th.

Taking a cue from from the likes of L.A. Noire and Mortal Kombat, the Gears of War 3's Season Pass looks to offer gamers an opportunity to pre-order the upcoming DLC at a discounted price. Unlike L.A. Noire and Mortal Kombat Season Pass' reasonable cost, Gears of War 3's Season Pass will be the priciest ever.

A Celeb Voiced Gears of War 3 Multiplayer Skin Is Now Being Given Away For Free! (Good news if you're an Ice-T fan)

Gears of War 3 is easily going to be one of the biggest games to be released this year due to a variety of reasons.  Not only is it supposed to be the last chapter in the current Gears story but the multiplayer mode actually looks fun instead of being a janky mess and as always there’s an abundant amount of violence and gore.  Gears 3 may still be a month away from being released, but gamers can get a little bonus of sorts now since Epic Games is giving away voucher codes for a bonus character skin.

Gears of War 3 Collector's Edition Is Cool But Typically Pricey

It’s a prerequisite at this point that every major game receives a special release SKU that either has cool stuff to justify the $40 bump in price or is so woefully put together that it’s clear the publisher merely wants some easy money at the hands of overzealous fans.  Gears of War 3 is shaping up to be another big game for the Xbox 360 and to celebrate the end of the core Gears trilogy, Microsoft and Epic Games have prepped not just one but two rather cool special release SKUs.

LucasArts Picks A New Engine To Power Their Upcoming Games

I usually like to refrain from articles like these since they can sometimes be pointless, but seeing as how this news offers a slight “huh?” factor and will impact a franchise we all love I thought it was worth bringing up.  Today LucasArts has announced that moving forward the company will utilize Unreal Engine 3 for all future games developed internally by the studio.  LucasArts may be the latest in a long line of companies that will exclusively use Unreal Engine 3 to bring their games to life (WB Games also signed on a while back) but I find this news interesting since it’s hon

First Impressions: Gears of War 3 Beta

Like most games now a days, there always has to be a sequel. In some cases several. Gears of War definitely fits into that category. With the beta for part three launching today, we find out if the newest instalment is worth something to add to your wish list this year.

Firstly I want to say this is the first time I’ve ever played Gears of War online. However, I’ve heard through several people that the online aspect of the series has fallen short.  Suffering from a case of the lags, it was under much speculation whether or not developer Epic Games could right the wrongs.
