MLG and Epic Games are incredibly excited to announce that we will be streaming a Gears of War 3 Exhibition match live from the venue at MLG Raleigh. Gears of War 1 and 2 both had highly successful runs on the Pro Circuit, and we can’t wait to see how the third installment plays out. The match, which will use multiplayer maps that have received significant updates and changes since the beta, will be an exclusive, in-depth look at competitive GoW 3. We’re pulling out all the stops; we’ll be featuring the best team ever to play GoW on the Pro Circuit, and we’ll have the best commentators on hand to call the action.
The match will be aired live on the Halo: Reach stream at 8:15pm ET on Friday, August 26.
