Gears of War 3 Screenshots and Art

Gameinformer has released a bevy of screenshot from Epic’s upcoming crunchy shooter, Gears of War 3. We’ve picked out the most interesting, cool and crazy screenshots here for your viewing pleasure, along with commentary to boot. Hit the jump to see the rest of our selected gallery!

So, that first screenshot. Anya still sort of looks like a fragile man or something. And are these the fabled tentacle monsters? Spider tentacled monsters?

Yes, that is both a beard on my Dom as well as green on my Gears of war. That is also a motherfreaking knife/pointy bit at the end of that Pendulum era lancer. Does this mean more types of cinematic finishing moves? I sure hope so.

Is that a fire zombie?

Gears is not just channeling Sparta here, but also Bulletstorm…wow, could this be a second form of melee to be introduced in Gears 3? I hope so. Twopiecing will be that much more bitchier–yes, kid, I just killed you and yes I did it by kicking you in the face first.

Looking at this screenshot and comparing it to Gears 2, I can’t help but be relieved that Epic has learned from its overprocessing of assets. Honestly, try going back to Gears 2 and playing on some of those new maps…so many tacky, unnecessary textures everywhere. Your eyes might start bleeding or something. These screenshots also tell me that 3 will have a more natural color palette, which is good.

And last, but not least, yes, that is %^%&^*&$$$## mech. A mech. In Gears. I wonder if you’ll be able to get into these for multiplayer? Is this the new OP power weapon? If so, its the coolest of them all by default.

No doubt we will be seeing more of this game during E3, and I personally can’t wait.

    I’m definitely curious about what Anya’s deal is.
