Gears of War 3: new ‘Retro Lancer’ bundle unveiled

Just last week we provided our readers with details on both the Limited and Epic Editions of the much-anticipated Gears of War 3 game. We now have some more exciting news for all you Gears of War fans, as we’ve just heard that a new ‘Retro Lancer’ bundle has recently been unveiled.

According to Trung Bui over on the website, those of you who want that little bit more than what’s included in the Gears of War 3 Limited or Epic editions will now be able to purchase a Retro Lancer replica assault rifle alongside the current editions of the third-person shooter.

However, adding the replica Retro Lancer to your copy of the Gears of War 3 game will cost you an extra $100, although you do have the option of purchasing the replica gun on its own. The replica is created from the actual 3D data used by Epic Games, and measures over 3 ½ feet in length.

The Retro Lancer replica is hand painted with weathered and battle worn detail, and features a trigger that activates a machine gun sound effect. The Gears of War 3 game is due to be released exclusively for the Xbox 360 on September 20th. Will you bite the bullet and pre-order the Retro Lancer?
