Go To Video Boot Camp To Prepare For Updated Horde Mode

With Gears of War 3, Epic Games has revisited its popular Horde Mode. Rather than simply provide more of the same, the studio has added elements of tower defense and strategy to the mix. It's a cool change of pace, and we had a lot of fun with it at E3. If you weren't able to check it out there, a new trailer hosted by Anya Stroud's familiar voice walks greenhorns through the mode.

In the mode, players earn currency that they can spend on fortifying their defenses. These defenses range from simple barriers to slow down attackers to automated sentries, mountable turrets, and the enormous Silverback mech suit. Check out the video below to see these and more in action, and to get a look at how these defenses can be further upgraded.

  • Horde Mode on GoW2 saved the game IMO, the Campaign was one of the worst I have ever played. Utterly underwhelming, the new additions to Horde Mode are looking awesome! Right up my alley.

  • awesome!!!! tower defense was one of my favorite elements like 5 years ago and I still love it when they have those elements in games today!!! also im kind of wanting to see the upgraded form of everything!
  • Looks to be the best Gears yet hope it turns out good.

  • I'm not much of a fan when it comes to Gear's multiplayer but this alone seems worth playing.

  • God, I hope her V/O in work the game isn't as bad as it was in this commercial. Horde 2.0 looks cool though.
  • Awesome, Tower defense + Horde mode combined = INSANELY *** AWESOME.
  • Holy crap! That looks friggin awesome!!!

  • I can't believe how well GOW3 is coming along. It's truly blowing my mind away.

  • In gears 2 this seemed like just an afterthought. But now i feel i'd play this just as much as multiplayer! Good *** Epic. Can you say Game of the year???
  • Gears 3 is looking even better and better, GOTY contender? From what I've played from the beta, even if it was little compared to the full game, yes it will stand on the top.

  • Nice, don't have an Xbox but this seems like a really addicting game!
  • I can get behind this. Horde from Gears 2 was an important entry into the FPS timeline, but it's a little more than dated. 2.0 looks solid.

  • Was Marcus using one of the swords from gears two?
  • Im not gonna lie horde mode is one of my favortie parts of GoW2, teaming up with my buds was awsome survival comedy, and i'm thrilled to see the guys ast epic trying to really emphasise team play. I'm stoked for this, i just hope getting to rank 100 doesn't take forever...or 100,000 kills...please don't put in a seriously 3.0...seriously
  • I'm ready to beat Horde 2.0! Who's with me?
  • Mod

    Love me some horde mode. The new additions look awesome.

  • Horde mode was the one thing I liked about the previous game. I don't see this being GOTY since it has Portal 2, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Uncharted 3 to worry about. However, it still looks like it's gonna be pretty fun.

  • I love the Gears of War games. I play them all the time at my cousins. I just want to know why they have not released the 2nd one for pc but they released the first one. Makes me sad.
