Gears of War 3 Gearing up for Midnight War
Microsoft claims that Gears of War 3 is the fastest pre-selling Xbox game in history, so it's no wonder there are tens of thousands of launch events being organized worldwide to commemorate the release of the third game in the much lauded series. Some of the events include a party in Times Square, as well as a celebration at the Best Buy Theater in New York, featuring Big Sean. Celebrations will kick off in the Best Buy Theater in Times Square, and GameTrailers TV, featuring special guest Aisha Tyler, will air it live between 11:30 pm and 12:01 am EST on Spike TV.
Epic's design director Cliff Blezinski said:
This is by far the biggest, most polished, and most ambitious game we've ever made. I've been lucky enough to work on some big games throughout my career, but ĹGears of War 3' represents a crowning achievement for our team, and we can't wait to share it with fans next Tuesday.
Attendees at said events will have a chance to secure several other prizes and perks, such as the ability to play the game in advance of the midnight launch, meeting the game's developers, competing in tournaments for exclusive prizes and participating in a scavenger hunt that could net them Limited and Epic editions of the game.
