Following the success of Left 4 Dead’s multiplayer mode allowing players to play as both survivors and zombies, Gears of War 3 has just announced a new mode to the Gears franchise called Beast Mode. The new mode allows five players to play Horde Mode, but now with the twist of being able to play as the Locust who are trying to take out a team of COG.
There’s a whole class system in Beast Mode which allows players to pick from a wide range of Locust such as Kantus who can resurrect, Wretches, Tickers, Boomers, Maulers, Grinders and Berserkers. Check out video below of Gears of War 3‘s Beast Mode in action from E3 2010.
