Posted on July 21, 2011, CJ Miozzi Comic-Con 2011: Gears of War 3 Will Have ‘Casual Mode’ For Noobs
Today at the San Diego Comic-Con, Rod Fergusson and Cliffy B spoke at the Gears of War panel and revealed new information about the upcoming third installment in Epic’s chainsaw-wielding franchise.
Gears of War 3 will include a “casual” area for competitive multiplayer which you’ll only be able to access if you haven’t played GoW 1 or 2. Anyone with Gears 2 or Gears 1 achievements, or who played in the beta, will be locked out of casual mode.
Epic explained that accessibility is important and that want their new players to be less daunted by the concept of getting shotgunned in the face. Apart from being a safe haven for green players, casual mode will have aim-assist.
After all, even diehard fans started as newbs.
