Gears of War 3 Trailer Drops on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

We all knew it was coming, but somehow the promise of a trailer for Gears of War 3 made us forget that the surprise had been spoiled last week. Cliff “Dude Huge” Bleszinski himself made an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and he brought with him the first trailer for Gears of War 3, entitled “Ashes to Ashes”. Take a gander:

Very, very cool, and definitely in the vein of Epic’s previous trailers, all of which have paired the traditional shooty-shooty vibe of Gears with some somber strains of music. There’s a few things that attentive fans may spot in the trailer, such as a female Gear, and the first signs of the new enemy for Gears 3, the Lambent. What did you guys think of the trailer? Should we start the hype train? Anyone else get a sort of “Pompeii” feeling from all the ashen bodies in the video?

  1. Saw this last night. And I’m not only getting on the hype train… I’m the conductor. I love me some Gears and I can’t wait for another installment.

  2. @JJ Just like they used Gary Jules’ “Mad World” for one of the trailers for the very first game? (Maybe second?). Very weird stuff, but they know how to grab attention.

    Cool trailer, never got through the first game, can’t see myself getting through this one.

  3. BTW 4 player co op IS confirmed. And the guy with the beard is in fact Dom and the blonde girl is Anya (in the latest book she forfeits her “in the rear with the gear” role and grabs a rifle for a change). Also the game takes place 18 months after the ending of Gears 2.

    Do you perchance mean the COLE TRAIN, BABY?!?!?!?

    Anyway, I enjoyed Gears 2 so I’m looking forward to what Gears 3 will be like. Since I don’t play Multiplayer that much other than Horde though, I might just rent it to save moolah. We’ll see.
