While we already know Gears of War 3 is on its way in April 2011, the game made its public debut earlier tonight on the Jimmy Fallon show, giving us our first 73-second look at the blood-riddled Xbox shooter.
As you can see in the teaser trailer shown, Gears of War 3 introduces a number of new elements to the series, such as double-barrel shotguns, big tentacled bad guys and female soldiers.
The trailer looks fine, but what I like best is how well Dude Huge comes across on TV. Very presentable! We'll get you a high quality of the trailer as soon as one is made available, but for now, make do with this direct footage from Clifford Bleszinski's appearance on the show (the trailer starts about 2 minutes in). When pressed for an exact release date, Bleszinski told Fallon it would be out "probably April 8".
