Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust. Brothers to the end.

Updated Story: Microsoft has now sent out the official trailer and we've embedded it below.

Original Story: Machinima has gone live with a brand new cinematic trailer for Gears of War 3 before the game releases in a mere twenty days.

Following in line with previous cinematic trailers for the franchise, this latest video, entitled “Dust to Dust,” features very low-key music to juxtapose the all the bloodshed and carnage. Somehow the folks at Epic Games manage to consistently turn a franchise high on raging testosterone into something quite poignant and beautiful.

Give the trailer a watch now. Do it!


Also, if you fancy yourself a big college football fan then you might catch the above trailer again on national television this weekend, as it’s airing before the LSU vs. Oregon game at 5:00pm PDT on ABC. Or, you could just rewatch it here over and over again. We won’t judge. Promise.
