A futuristic, third-person shooter by Epic Games – the creators of the bestselling Unreal series. The action takes place on Sera, a planet, devastated by a long war for power sources, resembling Earth. In the result of aggressive prospecting and exploration, hostile monstrosities called Locust started to appear on the surface of the planet and killed 80% of human population. Fourteen years later, as the situation on the frontlines seems hopeless, Marcus Fenix, an ex-soldier convicted for desertion is forced to rejoin the war. Even though the gameplay is dynamic, the game puts a considerable emphasis on tactics and the cover system. As Marcus you make use of a wide range of futuristic weapons and pure physical strength of the heavily armored hero. Apart from the single player campaign, Gears of War offers multiplayer, including co-op and the Execution mode, for up to eight players, in which you have to kill the members of the other team. The game’s graphics are powered by Unreal Engine 3.
