Gears of War 3 Campaign Trailer Debuts

This little piggie chainsawed all the way home...

There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.

So you’ve shotgunned dudes to pieces in the beta, you’ve eagerly read every word of every preview and you’ve drooled over the teaser; but you still haven’t seen it all just yet. The full Gears of War 3 campaign trailer finally debuted today Saturday — it was originally scheduled for Friday — and it’s quite a doozy. The in-game footage lasts about a minute and gives us some interesting insight into what we can expect this fall.

In the trailer, Marcus meets up with his dad and they reconcile their splintered relationship after years of isolation from one another. They then discuss plans for a peace treaty with those poor, misunderstood Locust gents over a couple of hot cups of tea. After achieving world peace across Sera, the most brilliant scientific minds from both sides of the conflict come together and work on a clean and efficient energy alternative to immulsion. No, of course they didn’t do any of that; this is Gears of War. Black Sabbath’s War Pigs blares loudly as COGs and Locust shoot the hell out of each other while crap gets blown up. Watch it.
