New Gears Of War 3 Information From Upcoming Game Informer Issue
If you're not a fan of change, Gears of War 3 may not be the game for you. Sadly, Delta Squad will not be identical this go around.
The four man (woman?) team will now see two newcomers to the group that keeps Marcus and Dom but introduces us to Anya Stroud, which some already knew about, and Jace Stratton - whom we don't know much about at all. Don't panic about Cole and Baird not being in the group anymore, they're still in the game.
According to the article in the magazine players will now be able to trade weapons with one another and soldiers on the battlefield. A few new weapons will be making appearances such as a pre-Pendulum Wars era Lancer with a bayonet at the end. Another new weapon will be the digger launcher, which apparently “fires piranha-like creatures into the ground where they then seek and devour their targets.”
New Locust classes will be added such as a grenadier and “large, organic catapults." Whatever that means.
The article also mentions an "Arcade Mode" being added to the game where players can screw around with the game's effects, gravity, big-head mode, and more. Stats Tracking is also introduced in GoW3 which will allow you to see your friends gaming scores in a section of a map and such.
Two new maps were confirmed for multiplayer in Gears of War 3: one is a deserted thrashball field and the other called Overpass, which is the “sinking remains of Jacinto."
Tons more info through here.
