Gears of War 3 will be released on September 20, 2011 exclusively for Xbox 360 announced developer Epic Games and publisher Microsoft.

Gears of War 3 promises to take the storied third-person shooter gameplay that the series benchmarked with the original game (popularizing the cover mechanic) and elevate it to the next level with four-player cooperative play, dedicated servers, true host migration in online matches, all-new female characters, Beast Mode and the conclusion to the epic saga that helped put the Xbox 360 on the map.

“Gears of War 3 is the spectacular conclusion to one of the most memorable and celebrated sagas in video games. Developed by Epic Games exclusively for Xbox 360, Gears of War 3 plunges you into a harrowing tale of hope, survival, and brotherhood.

In Gears of War 3, fight on as Marcus Fenix, the grizzled war hero and leader of Delta Squad. Eighteen months after the fall of the last human city, the war against the Locust rages on. Meanwhile, deep beneath the surface, a fearsome new threat is infecting the planet from within. With survivors scattered and civilization in ruins, time is running out for Marcus and his comrades as they fight to save the human race.”

Don’t forgot that those who bought the Epic Edition of BulletStorm will get entry into the public beta, which does not yet have a date.

Here is the iconic Gears of War 3 Ashes to Ashes trailer. Hopefully we’ll get some new media on this game soon.
