Gears of War 3 launches at midnight tonight

The locust scum are dropping tonight – lancers at the ready…

Those itchy trigger fingers don’t have too long to wait before they’re pumping the Locust horde with hot lead as Gears of War 3 prepares for tonight’s midnight launch at GAME’s Oxford Street store.

Expected to be swarming with Locust troops and free memorabilia including signed posters and T-shirts, Gears of War 3 Vault consoles cases will also be available – after all, what better way to show your support than cladding your 360 in a blood-soaked skull chassis?

Five lucky gamers will also stroll away with a 40in Samsung D5520 Smart LED TV, so if you fancy some free swag we suggest heading down early to avoid disappointment before slicing your way though vile alien flesh in the early hours of the morning. Game on.

UPDATE: We've got three GOW3 Xbox 360 chassis (as seen in our pic, top), three copies of the game and three GOW strategy books to give away on Friday, October 23, 2011. Come by our Facebook page for a chance to win.
