Epic Games has revealed that Gears of War 3 will feature a new Casual Mode for some multiplayer matches, intended to make the game more accessible to those who've never played Gears of War before.
Players who use Casual Mode will benefit from an increased aim assistance, according to Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski, who unveiled the mode in a discussion at Comic Con.
Casual Mode will remain locked off to experienced players, however - you'll only be able to enable it if you don't have any Gears of War 2
or Gears of War 1
achievements linked to your profile. Those who've played the Gears of War 3 Beta are also unable to access Casual Mode.
Epic will have new Casual Mode multiplayer servers set up too, free of more able players.
Gears of War 3 will also have a Casual Mode in the single player campaign, where players will benefit also from weaker enemies and more health.
Gears of War 3 is due for release on 20th September, 2011 on Xbox 360. Check the Gears of War 3 trailer below, then let us know your thoughts in the forums
