Gears Of War 3 Is Secretly A Masterpiece Of Landscape Art

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.


    Great weather effects, great level of detail, great design, but it does beg the question - are the makers of Gears of War colour blind?
