Gears of War 3 Goes Gold

The wait to return to
the war-ravaged world of Sera and rev up those chainsaws is nearly over. Cliff
Bleszinski, Epic Games’ Design Director, announced via his Twitter account that
Gears of War 3 has gone gold.  
Accompanying the post
is a picture of a cake that states, “Gone gold! 
Congratulations from Xbox!”  He
noted that “At Epic, the cake is not a lie,” a reference from Valve’s Portal, assuring readers that Gears of War 3 is indeed finished.

Launching September
20th, Gears of War 3 will
once again star Marcus Fenix and his fellow Gears, as they attempt to eliminate
the enemy Locust once and for all.  New
Locust types have been confirmed, as well as new Gears, most notably playable
female characters.

There will be
multiple versions of the game available at launch.  Besides the standard $60 edition, the Limited
version, running at $80, will include an Octus Award Box, containing a COG
flag, and a playable Adam Fenix character for multiplayer, among other collectibles.  For $150, the Epic edition contains
everything from the Limited edition, plus a Marcus Fenix statue, a
behind-the-scenes book, and more.  Or,
buyers can purchase the $400 Gears of War-themed Xbox 360 console that includes
the game, two controllers, and in-game items.
