Gears of War 3

“Ashes to Ashes” picks up the Gears storyline in the days after The Hammer of Dawn has wiped out an entire city. Set to the haunting “Heron Blue” track by Sun Kil Moon, the trailer focuses on Dom as ash falls like snow, blanketing a street lined with the charred corpses of poor fellers caught in the nuclear attack. Scouting away from his squadron, Dom engages a small platoon of enemy soldiers before running directly into the blast’s ground zero. He’s gravely injured and accepts death. The appearance of his Delta Squad spurs an epiphanic moment and he joins his brethren in the good fight. A massive tentacle monster rises from the ground and crab-like creatures surround the Delta Squad and together they fire at the enemy hoard until the spot closes with the title graphic “Brothers To The End.”
