This article describes Gears of War.


Gears of War is the first game that was developed exclusively for Microsoft Game Studios and the Xbox 360 platform by Epic Games. Gears of War puts you in a deep and harrowing story of humankind’s epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde. The Locust Horde is a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet.

In this third-person tactical action/horror game, you play the role of a disgraced former war hero named Marcus Fenix. Marcus seeks personal redemption as he leads his fire team against an onslaught of merciless warrior fiends. Immerse yourself in an experience so emotional and gut wrenching that you will feel as if you are controlling a blockbuster action movie.
