The casual observer of the Xbox 360’s Gears of War 3 may notice the grunting warriors, the characters shooting each other to bloody bits or chainsawing each other in half.

Refined eyes will spot beauty. They will see a triumph of modern landscape art, hiding in the background of a big action blockbuster.

Watch these scenes of natural disaster, captured by us from the new downloadable map pack “Forces of Nature”, which was released for Gears of War 3 today. The setting is the Earth-like planet of Sera, wracked by the angry elements.

Gorgeous work.
