Gears of War 3 was finally unveiled with the first official trailer called Ashes to Ashes. This trailer made it’s debut by Cliffy B himself on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
The trailer is an incredibly epic and moving piece of cinema in the vein of the previous famous Gears of War trailers and commercials like the Gears of War 1 Mad World trailer, Gears of War 2 Rendezvous trailer and the Gears of War 2 Last Day commercial.
There isn’t much revealed in this first trailer gameplay-wise, as it’s a cinematic piece meant to make an emotional connection with the watcher. But fans of the series will spot the new enemies and the first ever look at the new female soldier.
Here is the interview with Gears of War creator and lead designer Cliff Bleszinski on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
And here is just the Ashes to Ashes trailer on it’s own.
