An Explanation of the Gears of War 3 Unlocks
Remember back when Cliff Bleszinski said that playing games like UT3, BulletStorm and Shadow Complex would give you rewards in Gears of War 3? Me either but apparently he did, and now that is not the case anymore.
In a tweet made by Cliff back in December he stated "Look for special unlocks in Gears 3 for those of you who have played other Epic games such as Shadow Complex, UT3, Gears, and Bulletstorm,"
Well it seems that is no longer the case because in a tweet from Gears of War 3's Lead Programmer Joe Graf said "Turns out that we can't read the Bulletstorm, Shadow Complex, and UT3 achievements for unlocks in Gears 3 after all. Sorry about that all," He also stated "For those of you that are sad about the unlocks, it turns out that you can't read the data outside of your publisher/dev family,"
Don't worry though because it seems that Gears 1 and 2 will still offer something for us gamers in Gears 3. "All of the Gears games are in our publisher/dev family, so those we will reward with unlocks," said Gaf
Gaf also confirms that playing in the Gears of War 3 beta will have some rewards as well.
So be sure to hold onto your Gears of War 1 and 2 gamesaves, hopefully it will pick up achievements instead. And don't forget to check out the Gears of War 3 beta only accessed through BullestStorm which launches this March.
