Gears of War 3 casual mode revealed

Get your aim assist on in multiplayer.

Gears of War 3 features a casual mode designed to help newcomers ease into the third-person shooter's multiplayer portion.

Casual mode players will benefit from an aim assist, designer Cliffy B said during a panel discussion at Comic-Con.

If you're an experienced player, casual mode is locked off. To gain access you must be free from Gears of War 1 and Gears of War 2 achievements, and can't have played the Gears of War 3 beta.

Dedicated casual multiplayer channels will remain free of experienced players. This is in addition to the game's casual mode for the campaign.
