Yet another video: “Gears of War 3 OG Slick Involvement Video” also debuted over the weekend. In this video, OG Slick talks about his involvement in Gears of War 3, from t-shirt production to in-game propaganda and posters.

Gears of War 3 Trike by Paul Jr DesignAlso announced was the Gears of War 3 trike on July 21, 2011 at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego. A 2nd bike was built and will be given away in a Best Buy Sweepstakes as well as a trip to New York City for the Gears of War 3 Launch event.

        I didn’t hear anything about him be playable in 4 player co-op either. Maybe he dies early in the campaign?

      Big thanks to Flak for being engaged with this San Diego Comic-Con giveaway event I also want to thank everyone else at Epic Games for having the best game in the world! Words can’t express how I feel right now, I’m blessed and thankful.  Thanks for the DLC Gears of War prize pack

      You can get the golden weapons without having them in gears of war 2 because that would be unfair if you couldn’t.

    • Regino

       I want to get my wings but i sold my xbox for the gears one! Hopefully you dont get anything too special or else they need to make more events for gears 2  so i can get 100 when gears 3 comes out!

    • Regino

      Really want to get golden weapons! Very desperate! #gearsweekend

      That should be in the game! I would love to run the locust down on that!

    • Jorgep

      Those lancer-carrying sires were surprisingly difficult. Got chainsawed a couple times.

    • Socialdpv

      I really thing EPIC games should keep the XPx 20 going everyday until the release date for GEARS OF WAR 3. This way everyone will have a greater chance to get to RANT 100 and get thier wings.

      The only thing that could make this better is if the winner got some Armor to go with it!
