Gears of War: Anvil Gate book announced, out this month

If you’re a hardcore Gears of War fan, don’t let this piece fall into oblivion.

Announced earlier today, Epic is once again teaming up with Karen Traviss to bring the third book based on the developer’s grand franchise. Gears of War: Anvil Gate will tell the story between the second and third game in the series, explaining humanity’s struggle for survival after the Jacinto events. While gangs were thought to be the primary worry, they soon discovered that the Lambent, creatures that even the Locust feared, were roaming the planet, invading it piece by piece and taking it over.

Anvil Gate is part of the fast-moving storyline between the second and third Gears games, so it’s essential reading for any fan who wants to fully understand the events of Gears of War 3 – the final game of the trilogy, also written by Karen,” said Epic Games Executive Producer Rod Fergusson.

Gears of War: Anvil Gate will be in stores later this month, on August 31st.
