Gears 3 Can lure Call of Duty Players, Says MS

Gears of War 3’s FPS-inspired game modes can lure Halo and Call of Duty players to the third-person shooter series, reckons Kevin Unangst, senior producer at Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business.

 Unangst said he thinks Gears 3 is going to be "huge" in 2011.

"It is the biggest and best Gears we’ve done, it is our blockbuster and a huge, huge release for us," he said.

The game’s new Team Deathmatch mode is one FPS stalwart to make it over to Epic’s series, having teams share a pool of lives before the inevitable ’last man standing’ man hunt at the end.

"Personally I play Team Deathmatch a lot and they’ve got that so I’m personally quite excited," Unangst added. "I think it’s going to be huge. Adding modes like that is important because there’s a lot of Halo and Call of Duty players so it’s another way we can bring [those] players to Gears of War."

Gears of War 3’s Xbox Live beta has been confirmed for an April 25 kick off, with Bulletstorm Epic Edition owners getting early access. Read our hands-on impressions of the Gears of War 3 beta for more.
