Gamers who have played Gears of War 1 & 2 will be excited to know that some rewards will be heading your way in Gears of War 3.
In an interview with MTV, Rod Fergusson, the Executive Producer of Gears of War 3, in more detail the sort of rewards those players will be receiving in Gears of War 3.
Here’s what he said:
“It’s mostly around weapon skins in terms of tying into historical stuff. Two of the ones…I guess we haven’t announced this but we have to announce it eventually, right? Two of the weapon skins are based on historical weapon skins, so if you want the gold lancer and the gold hammerburst in ‘Gears 3,’ you get them by owning the gold hammerburst and the gold lancer in ‘Gears 2,’ so those skins transfer over.”
He want on to say that these benefits are simply “cosmetic”. When the game launches in September, everyone will still be on a level playing field in terms of their weapon abilities. Those players can still brag and say their weapons look cooler though…
Gears of War 3 is an Xbox 360 exclusive scheduled for release September 20th worldwide.
