Ever since we have heard about Beast Mode in Gears 3 we’ve been pretty excited to see it. An article by Kotaku revealed that the Beast Mode has been revised.
“The new, revised Beast Mode I was shown yesterday, is now a violent rush to defeat waves of humans in as little time as possible”
You can play as all your favourite locusts from Tickers to Bloodmounts to Serapedes, Corpsers to name but a Few. Beast Mode contains 12 levels of locust guts and chainsaw madness. A bit like BulletStorm# its all about how fast you can complete it in. The COG is controlled by the AI who will set up dummies, barricades, traps and turrets to make it difficult as a Locust.
The mode starts off with 1 minute on the clock, every time you kill an enemy you gain time for the locust Horde. When the time runs out the Hammer of Dawn will kill the entire locust mob. Similar to Horde you must pay to respawn, cash can also be made by killing COG soldiers, reviving team mates and damaging human fortifications. As you progress through Beast Mode you’ll come accross veteren Gears each with their own trademark, Hoffman with the Hammer of Dawn, Cole with the Boomshot etc.
