It is set for release in Singapore on 20 September 2011 (with a ‘midnight’ launch event the previous day) but enthusiastic people of the media and a platoon of forty lucky fans from Xbox Singapore Facebook page were invited for a special preview and hands-on on the full features of Gears of War3 (single player, multiplayer, Horde Mode [hell yeah!], Beast Mode [double hell yeah!]) along with free flow of finger food and drinks!). We were also treated to a special video message from Cliff Bleszinski for fans in Singapore!
The Xbox Singapore team was busy all day, while playing host to Epic Games and ‘Gears of War3’ Lead Level Designer Jim Brown, started the day with an appearance early morning at Nanyang Polytechnic, a tertiary educational institution, wherein Jim spoke to 260 students from the Digital Entertainment Technology and Digital Media Design Course, followed by the preview event (for media) at noon, as well as opening the doors to lucky fans who won a chance to catch a sneak peek of Gears of War3 through a contest organised on the Xbox360 Singapore Facebook page, after tea break. These lucky fans also did not go home empty handed. A goodie bag with Gears of War ‘goodies’ and a 3-month LIVE card can be found inside.
Fans who missed this opportunity can look forward to a bigger Gears of War 3 celebration at the launch event on 19 September at Funan DigitaLife Mall from 8pm. The first 50 fans will received autographed posters and Gears of War3 hoodie sweatshirts worth $60. They will also stand to receive an exclusive Gears of War3 Survivor Kit worth $100. There will also be fun stage activities, attractive luckydraws and ‘Gears of War 3’ babes.
