Gear 3 campaign tops 10 hours

Written by David Stellmack

Longer than both Gears 1 and 2
Cliff Blezinski from Epic has revealed that the campaign mode in Gears of War 3 will offer about 10 hours of game play. This is longer than Gears of War 1 and 2, which had campaigns that were about 8 or 9 hours, depending on how good you were.

The news of a long campaign is just the latest in a string of improvements and enhancements that will be a part of Gears of War 3. The multiplayer has received a lot of attention, including what really amounts to a major overhaul that will include dedicated servers to host the multiplayer action. The multiplayer modes will feature a new version 2.0 of the popular Horde mode that is a fan favorite.

Gears of War 3 is on track for a September release on the Xbox 360; and to celebrate (as we told you about yesterday), Microsoft will be offering a new Limited Edition Gears of War 3 Xbox 360 console as well as a Limited Edition wireless Xbox 360 controller. As we indicated yesterday, Microsoft will have both the Limited Edition Gears of War 3 Xbox 360 and the Limited Edition Gears of War 3 controllers out in time for the release of Gears of War 3.

Sounds great, is it just me or are game developers putting a lot more focus into singleplayer lately?
Gears of War is imho the best game series on Xbox 360.

To be honest, it was much better experience on PC, but unfortunately we never saw the second part. :(

Well,if you think 10h gameplay is enough to pay some 50 or even 60eur,then i sad for future games,how its more focus on single player,when devs making just stupid 10h? Not everybody want play online with screaming teenagers.
Thanks god,there are still proper devs who making proper stories for single player - Deus Ex 3,Witcher 2,Mass Effect series..

It depends really.
imo. Shooters like Gears of War shouldn't be much longer, it gets frustrating and at some point you just want it to end if it goes on and on. RPG's however, again imo, should be as long as possible, Oblivion is probably still my all-time favorite because of all the side missions.

If it gets frustrating and you want it to end, then the game design just sucks aka. the game.

Yes and no, movies can also be too damn long, and while it certainly has to do with the story/game, a story can be good while short, sometimes it just shouldn't be long.

Portal 1 was a huge success and had even less hours of gameplay in it.

Its different with movies because you cant take a break there.

Portal was never seen as a full price game, it was 1 of 3 in the orange box, had new ideas, etc, etc.

Its true that you can tell a good story in much shorter time but then they at least should adjust the price. Paying 60€+ to play 10h would let me feel pretty stupid...kinda like after The Force Unleashed 2 :I

i look at it this way...you pay 20 to 30 bucks for a movie with zero interaction that lasts around 1 or 2 hours...GOW3 is twice the price with 10 hours of play! not to mention hours upon hours of multiplayer replayability... you're getting your moneys worth...
