Cliffy B: Gears 3 “Won’t Be Easier” Than Gears 1 & 2

After a Russian gaming magazine was scanned and translated here in the English-speaking world via Epic Games forums, Cliffy B has set out to clarify a few mis-translations. One aspect he’s firmly clarifying is the report that Gears of War 3 will be “easier” than Gears of War 1 and Gears of War 2.

He clarified that the game itself won’t be easier, but that casual mode will be easier. “[The] game won’t be easier,” Bleszinski told CVG,” Hardcore and Insane will certainly live up to their names. It’s just that Casual will be even easier.”

So, don’t worry Gears fans, if you are a serious gamer who wants to tackle a difficult experience, you still have Hardcore and Insane difficulty. Casual mode will just be an easier experience, although, frankly, I didn’t find Casual to be all that hard to begin with. I still find it hard to believe that only 60% of gamers finished the game. Who are these gamers?
