Comic-Con 2011: Gears of War 3 Has Custom Graffiti, Courtesy of Artist OG Slick (TRAILER)
OG Slick’s relationship with Gears of War began when he was asked to design a t-shirt promoting it. The graffiti artist was a big fan of the game, however, and had some pointed advice for its creators: he thought the world of Gears needed more graffiti.
No doubt seeing the marketing potential that has just been brought to fruition by the video below, Epic brought Mr. Slick in to collaborate with the game’s artists, developing a wide variety of Locust and COG-themed grafitti that has been slathered onto walls all over the gameworld. Players can keep an eye out for it as they battle their way through Gears of War 3 this fall (check out our single-player impressions from E3), if they’re not too distracted by Anya, Marcus Fenix’s new blond sidekick. Unfortunately, this badass Gears motorcycle will not be included.
