Trailer for Gears of War 3

Cliff Bleszinski of Epic Games dropped the trailer for Gears of War 3 during his appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”

I’m having trouble embedding this one, so this link is going to have to do for now.

Note the tentacled Locust creature as well as the presence of a female Gear soldier, something that’s been missing from the first two installments. Before this, the only females I can remember were Anya, the communications / intel officer and the Locust Queen. I guess you can sort of throw Dom’s wife in there, but … I’m not sure she counts. The game, according to the trailer, should be coming out around this time next year.
