No, Baird and Cole are there too. It looks like Marcus, Dom, Anya, Cole, and Baird are a squad.

They had better release these new fully utilized beard mechanics for developers that use the unreal engine.

Dom kinda looks like Ryan now...

Posted by REDRUN

YES!!! They added Lumber Jacks... win!

there's a weird Bioshock vibe to all the ash statues (ashtues?) here.

Cool beans.

These games are awesome, but goddamn it I wish the tone of the actual game was as consistent (or maybe just as successful) as it is in their trailers. 
 
But if it ends up pulling out the "teaming together to fight a greater enemy twist!" I will eat my goddamn hat.

the gun that chick gave dom(?) is an early version of the lancer. maybe now instead of just chainsawing guys in two, we get to violently stab them to death

Posted by carlthenimrod

Dom looks like Sam Fischer.
 
I love the trailers they make for Gears; Always top notch.

Hey, Epic! You're supposed to show lots of ridiculous action and explosions. This is Gears of War, please don't pretend you're some kind of subtle character drama.

Posted by DiGiTaL_SiN

Epic.... games.

Why do people keep talking about Gears 2 as some horrible game? I think Gears 2 is way better than Gears 1. I actually stopped playing Gears 1 about 3/4 of the way through due to some of it's bad design. For instance, can you defend that horrible night-time portion?
 
On the other hand, Gears 2 kept me happy all the way til the end. Sure it didn't change a lot of stuff, but neither do the Halo games and people don't complain about Halo 3 (as much). It was just the way Gears 1 SHOULD have been. 
 
Now if you have problems with the multiplayer, I have no comment. I never touched the multiplayer outside of playing coop with my wife.

Ahh can't wait.

Yes.

THATS how you put a slow song in a trailer.  Damn Crysis 2.

They are setting up the world your playing in since everythings gone to shit whit the last human city destroyed(you thought you saved it in GOW2, Ha! think again).
It has nothing to do whit it being an character drama or anything like that. They are setting up the hopeless situation your in when picking up GOW3.
You seem to mistake that just because someone is doing an action game they automaticaly have to be explotions and boobs.
Also, this was first shown on national TV. What kind of trailer would fit better on TV? One whit gore, guts and explotions or this. Think a bit before you open your... keyboard?

Freeze frame at 1:05 and count. It's the same squad with an added female member, Baird is on the left.

It's the multiplayer people have the beef with. The single player was definitely better.  
 
I played hundreds of hours of Gears 1, and less than a day's worth of Gears 2. It was a total shambles, matchmaking didn't work and when it did it was mega laggy, it was the worst multiplayer experience I've had on the 360. It was fixed eventually but I could never get into it like Gears 1. I doubt they'll go backwards with Gears 3, and I have no intentions of playing Gears 2 style multiplayer again.

Don't you even joke about that he is my favorite, Man...that would suck, but otherwise cannot Wait, hope the multiplayer is worth playing this time.

Dom has an awesome beard.

Posted by andrewng30

looks like a younger Marcus, he doesn't have his scars and my first though is the bearded man is his dad.
Posted by Tuggah

That girl is totally the new Carmine. I'll probably rent this, don't care for the GOW multiplayer, but I like the single player.

Posted by EnduranceFun

Lol, is that Dom with the beard? I wonder if it tickles Marcus.

Posted by Taka

One more year? serious?
...i want it now!
 
Doms looking fancy with that facial hair

oh man this looks awesome.. Three person coop?

Posted by Lowbrow

Fine, EPIC, fine, I'll buy your God damned game. You happy now?!

Posted by Valco

I'm not really seeing the whle "it's Dom with a beard!" thing, it doesn't look much like him to me. Then again, all the other character designs have changed, so who knows. Still, I reckon thats Adam Fenix, and its about time we finally got a clear-cut low down on that guy.

Posted by benitobb

looks like they are going to establish Dom as the important character of the series, which would be great if they did.  I don't get how people can hate on the Gears trailers for the haunting, mellow music they use. i always thing those types of commercials are way fucking better than playing Korn or some crappy heavy metal riffs and just blowing stuff up. 
Posted by ISmoochyI

that looks pretty tight...it's funny to see an April and not a November release date for Gears tho...

Posted by FuzzYLemoN

Marcus is too cool for sleeves.

Posted by TheDoorman

Epic really does know how to make trailers. They really do.  
 
Although does the beginning of this trailer remind anyone of the Mad World trailer?

Posted by Erik
@9mmfistcuffs:  Nope, if you pause you can see a 5 man squad and it looks like Baird is standing on the right of Cole (his right that is).
Posted by Enigma2099

Show me where the grenades will land, dammit.

Posted by MeatSim

Dom is looking like a old man while Marcus looks the same, weird.

Posted by Death_Burnout

Dom's sick beard makes up for anything bad...like Anya. I feel like that character has looked different constantly.

Posted by MeatXbeatsXman

Damn, that's a pretty effective trailer.

Posted by DC

 I love Gears, and the trailers always carry a 'desperate last stand' message, as if there's very little chance of you winning. Then you play Gears and there's none of that. Instead it's an awesome party of loud guns, gibs and "Woo! Yeah baby!"
 
I really hope they get the feel of this trailer into the final game.
 
Also CliffyB's twitter states:
The song from the trailer is called "Heron Blue" by the band "Sun Kil Moon."

BEARDS OF WAR!

Posted by warpedzappa

Looks like pretty much the same old gears of war to me.  Hopefully it's not disappointing like the Gears 2 was.

There were five people there. 
 
I can wait for another Gears. Probably when it comes out will be about time for me to want another.
