The next instalment in the Gears of War series will feature a co-operative campaign for up to four players.

That's according to Epic's Cliff Bleszinksi, who wrote on his Twitter page: "Rod confirmed and I'm posting it here: 4 player integrated story co op in the campaign!"

Sounds like all the players will have a role to play in the narrative, then, and the focus won't just be on Marcus and Dom this time.

Gears of War 3 was officially announced earlier this week and will be released in Europe on 8th April 2011. Take a look at the first screenshots to see how it's shaping up.
