An early build of Gears of War 3's single player campaign has been leaked, and the game has appeared on various torrent websites. Epic's third-person shooter was originally set for release this past April but was delayed until September. In the past few days spoiler videos capped from the leaked Gears of War 3 file have littered YouTube.
Microsoft and Epic are naturally unhappy about the leak. Epic's Dana Cowley released this official statement.
"We have seen the reports of Gears of War 3 content being propped on the Web and working closely with our security teams and law enforcement to address the situation. This content is not from a final build and is not representative of what fans will enjoy when the game launches worldwide on September 20, 2011."
Since Gears 3 will be the final game in the trilogy and YouTube videos show Gears of War 3' campaign mode, there's bound to be plenty of major plot twists spoiled. If you enjoy the Gears series, do yourself a favor and stay away from any of these videos. I've been a fan of the series since 2006, there's no chance I'm going to spoil it for myself with a low res video on YouTube.
