Mysterious PS3 Gears Of War 3 Footage Appears Online

Mysterious PS3 Gears Of War 3 Footage Appears Online”

"While I have your attention - yes, it WAS a mistake putting LawBreakers on Playstation over Xbox", the Gears of War creator told his Twitter followers. That fact stands in stark contrast to this apparent PS3 gameplay footage, uploaded by somebody who claims (via Kotaku) that the build was initially released as part of the massive security breach at Epic in 2011. I don't know why it exists, I don't know why it was made. Our guess is that Gears of War 3 was probably never planned for release on PS3, but Epic Games had some fun experimenting anyway.

This all makes this Gears of War 3 PS3 build a one off curiosity, the company simply using the assets and game data on hand at a time when they had no games being actively developed for Sony's console - the only other title they could have used would be People Can Fly's Bulletstorm. While Epic considered developing Gears of War 4, they ultimately chose to sell the franchise to Microsoft, who then founded The Coalition to continue the series on Xbox One as a first party franchise. In a 2016 interview with Polygon, Epic CEO Tim Sweeney said that the cost of making Gears games and the sales needed to turn a profit had compelled the company to sell its series to Microsoft. That said, we have reached out to both PixelButts and Epic Games itself to see if we can find out more about this unusual artifact of gaming history. This new version, he maintains, was compiled by Epic itself. That partnership lasted through until the release of Gears of War: Judgement in 2013, with Epic owning the IP throughout. The build is dated 19th May 2011 - the video uploaded on its 9th anniversary - running on a PS3 Devkit which had additional RAM compared to retail units. "At the time I knew nothing about UE3 and how it works but after 2 months of work and abusing a way the engine loads data, it was working, albeit buggy as fuck".

As the footage shows, the build's performance is mixed. Those glitches frequently appear to be triggered by the blonde locks of Gears 3 cast member Anya Stroud.

"This is an Epic-made build of Gears of War 3 for PS3", explains leaker Proto in the YouTube video's description. Let us know your thoughts on Gears' PS3 build in the comments.
