Epic has released a short preview of what Gridlock will look like in Gears of War 3, and it looks dialed in to the nines. It’s amazing how different a map can look after a few years of technological innovations with the Unreal Engine 3. If you played the original Gears then you should be very familiar with Gridlock, which is still one of my favorite Gears of War multiplayer maps of all time. It’s a great map for some tight battles, and always makes for some intense shootouts. When you look at the video of Gridlock as it appears in Gears 3 you won’t even believe your eyes.
It looks like Gridlock in Gears of War 3 will be played in the night time, which is the first major change from the previous versions of Gridlock. Outside of that, the major improvements come in the form of textures, lighting, and the overall quality of the graphics seen in this version of Gridlock. Kudos to Epic for not being lazy and actually revamping their tech to make each Gears game look better than the last. Is it September 20th yet? You’ve been respecting the graphical improvements in Gears of War 3…
