Campaign is the biggest campaign Epic Games, Inc. has ever created. We find out a lot more about Marcus, his father Adam Fenix and their relationship, Clayton Carmines fate. Arcade mode is a new addition for the campaign mode. After beating the game, you can return with your co-op buddies to enter in a scored competitive version of the campaign
Capture The Leader
Guardian meets Submission – the leader now cannot be killed, but instead must be meatshielded for 30 seconds to gain the victory. Leaders can struggle using the B button at certain intervals to put off the captives aim. Leaders also gain leadership vision through the Tac/Com, which allows them to see both friend and foe. The new leaders are Queen Myrrah for the Locust, and Chairman Prescott for the COG.
Horde is a gameplay mode in Gears of War 2 and Gears of War 3 that features arcade style combat with waves of enemies. Up to five players can join together to fight against 50 waves of the Locust Horde. The difficulty increases as the players advance through the waves. Horde can be played on any multiplayer map, although players cannot play alongside bots. Gears 3 horde features include upgrading “fortifications”, boss fights at end of 10 waves e.g. Lambent Brumak, weapons can be bought, unlocking Silverbacks, spawns can be bought
King of the Hill
King of the Hill uses the same rules as Annex/KOTH in Gears 2. The percentage system seems to have been removed according to the MP footage. It uses the same point system and players do not need to stay in the ring to earn points once it is captured. KOTH now uses the Wingman spawn locations to prevent spawn blocking.
Team Deathmatch with a Gears style twist – your team spawns with 20 lives, and each death on your team takes a life away from that pool. Once all lives are expired, you can no longer respawn. If you are consistantly dying, you will be spawned nearer to your teammates or take slightly longer to spawn to counteract any potential issues of one person draining a team of lives. Team Deathmatch brings Execution’s self-revive as well as Warzone’s ability to kill DBNO players from a distance.
Confirmed to be returning, but now involves FOUR teams of two rather than FIVE teams of two.
