Key Points about this game.
- The story is written by fantastic author Karen Traviss, who wrote the Gears of War book series
- Set 18 months after Gears of War 2, and after the fourth Gears of War book.
- The Coalition has disbanded or dismantled. Everyone is essentially a Stranded.
- The Locust have not been seen in the time that has passed since the end of Gears 2 and the beginning of Gears 3
- The location shown in the "Ashes to Ashes" trailer is a location nicknamed 'Char', where the remains of victims from the Hammer of Dawn strikes are heavily present.
- Imulsion is infecting everything, not just the Locust. The Lambent are a ton of different nightmarish creatures.
