Grind Those Casual Gears

Grind Those Casual Gears

Gears of War 3 is to include a ‘casual’ mode, it has been revealed. Designed to ease new players into the multiplayer component, this new concept was just revealed by Cliffy B himself at Comic Con.

The idea behind the casual mode is that new players (IE those who lived under a rock and have not played Gears 1/2) are given an ‘aim-assist’ at the start of their foray into the multiplayer. In comparison, experienced veterans of the Gears universe will be completely locked out of the option of using the aim assist, with the criteria being you must not have any achievements from Gears 1/2 in order to qualify for the aim assist. You’re also not allowed to have played the beta.

There will also be casual channels for both campaign and the multiplayer component, in order to make sure new players don’t get completely destroyed by COG veterans. I mean, it’s gotta be disheartening getting chopped to pieces with a chainsaw every two minutes, right?
