First Gears of War 3 DLC will feature a new cast

Aisha Tyler (Halo: Reach, Archer [TV]) will be starring in the next downloadable Gears of War 3 campaign content, but the old cast won’t be joining her. In a post on neoGAF, Gears designer Cliff Bleszinski revealed that Marcus, Dom, Cole, and Baird will not appear in the next Gears 3 DLC.

As for who will be in the new campaign content, Bleszinski also said that the new story won't be a retelling of any of the Gears graphic novels, but Michael Barrick, a character from Gears of War: Hollow will be making an appearance. As for Jace Stratton, Barrick's trusty Delta Squad ally, we can't be sure, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him turn up again too.

    Oh the way Cliffy B....we should smoke a fatty over the next ground-breaking project!

    I love this game I really do. But I have some huge concerns about the upcom dlc. All I want to know is where the hell is RAMM and SCOURGE?!?! They are bosses who aren't dead at all!. I want to see these bad ass bosses kick ass and take no names! Thanks!

    What unanswered questions are they then??? Clearly you aint played Gears 1 or 2 cause if you had you would know that both Ramm and Scourge are both dead! FOOL!

    I loved Gears 3, but there were a few frustrating loose ends that weren't tied up, particularly dealing with the history of the Locust and questions that were brought up in Gears 2 involving Sires, New Hope Research Facility, Queen Myrrah's appearance, etc. I hope that the DLC dips into that because that was my one and only major gripe with Gears 3.

    Baird and Sam. Want More.

    I think this is great,its atleast a sign that they are already thinking about different characters for the DLC,and also a sign that the gears universe will continue even after gears 3,where will it go?,only time will tell,but I'm excited about this DLC and can't wait to see what else do they do,if anything what they should do for the map pack is not only new maps,but also some new weapons,that's something that CoD or battlefield haven't done yet,so I'm kinda hoping that they add new weapons and challenges with the map pack or atleast make a weapon pack,if only they took this to heart and did what us gamers truly want for our DLC!

    So Monster Hands Lana is joining the cast?

    Hmmm... Intradesding. I'm always, always excited for the work of Karen Traviss, and I can't wait to see what story she's told us now. But will it make Bernie Mataki a playable characters? Because that would be TOTALLY appreciated.

    New team should be, Barrick, Tortured Tai, Maria, Trescu. Maybe Rojas to.

    I laughed. Hard.
  • Ironarm - September 28, 2011 3:50 p.m.

    Well there goes my theory. I thought that the DLC would be (SPOILERZ!) how Baird and Cole gathered the reinforcements. I'm very intrigued now.

    I honestly felt it was going to be the same as you lol. Maybe a future DLC will have it. Hoping for some good story out of these!
