New Gears 3 scans show locations, man-made island

Blowout. A Russian games magazine’s running an eight-page feature on Gears of War 3, showing some stuff never before seen for the game.

One of the biggest points in the feature is a shot showing what looks like a man-made island, which is thought to be where the game mainly takes place.

It also features a real-time screenshot for the game, the first actually seen since its reveal last month, of Marcus and Dom on the island.

And with Enya now in the field, you’ll be getting a new operator as well: the magazine shows off concept art of what appears to be a new someone to talk sweet mutterings to while stomping Locust heads.

There’s also some new concept and render art of other things, comparison shots of locations from Gears 2 and 3 and what improvements have been made with the Unreal Engine, plus more.

Oh, and there’s a mech in the game as well, which backs up a previous report from Edge.

Get the scans over at AGB.

Gears of War 3 releases on April 8, 2011 in Europe, with an American release three days before it on April 5 on Xbox 360.

    Detachable weapons on the Mechsuit? Well, they did let Capcom put Dom & Marcus in LP2, i guess its only fair they have something in return. :D

    The black football player guy is holding some massive cannon that looks like its attached to his waist like the smart gun in Aliens

    When i first saw the picture i thought ‘surly that gun would break all his ribs if he fired it’ but then i noticed its on a sort of harness….maybe

    “Lambents are mutated locust that spit acid and explode after dying”

    The more it rips off Aliens the better in my book

    (this part is EPIC WIN) Even in multiplayer the environment constantly shifting (not explained how). The top picture is from the beginning of the match and the bottom one is five minutes later :O

    Thats pretty cool that part of the battlefield has sunk in the second pic

    So will this be the last Gears game? Hopefully they can wrap the story up with this one.

    Says in the link its the last of the games centered around Marcus, and that Gears will be around for like another 10 years with spin offs and prequels
