According to a new report from Edge, Gears of War 3 will introduce new underwater gameplay mechanics and shake up the series' popular cover system. How? With the addition of new weapons that travel underground and a new breed of tentacled Locust enemies that can overcome traditional means of cover.

Edge also writes that the COG members of Delta Squad will have access to "a heavy duty mech suit" in Gears 3, all of this according to a "US publishing source."

That's apparently the same source that pegged Gears of War 3's coming out party for today, April 8. Gears of War designer Cliff "The B" Bleszinski was supposed to appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon today to unveil the developer's next game, an appearance that has been pushed back to Monday, April 12. Microsoft spokespeople are helping to promote the show on Twitter, possibly an indication that the game will be an Xbox 360 title, the home to Gears of War.

Epic Games showed off new features from the engine that powers the Gears of War games

There are plenty more details ahead, but be warned, some of you may consider them to be spoilers, so yeah. You've been warned.

If the translations from Epic's forums are on the money, Gears 3 takes place 18 months after the events of Gears 2. In the months since the flooding of the planet, humanity's government has collapsed, the remnants of the species fleeing to the seas, splitting up into "tribes" and taking care of themselves.

One of these outposts is called "Raven's Nest", a large man-made island built of several warships slung together. Much of the game's action takes place on and beneath this ship/island, with Marcus joined by Dom, Cole, a newly-combative Anya and, DOUBLE SPOILER ALERT, Marcus' father Adam.

Perhaps most interesting, however, is word from Epic that while Gears 3 concludes Marcus Fenix's trilogy, there'll be plenty more Gears games on the horizon, including prequels, spin-offs and "maybe even a transition to a new genre".

Other tidbits: there's confirmation the game has mechs - called "Silverbacks" - and Gears 3's difficulty will also be scaled back, Epic claiming around 60% of players never bothering to finish the last game.
