Regions: PAL, US

Gears of War 3 came out in 2011, exclusively for Xbox 360. Three different versions were available: the regular, the Limited Edition and the Epic Edition. This article is about the Limited Edition.


The whole box represents the Octus Award Box that can also been seen in the game. It’s made of some sort of soft material. Inside you can see a replica of the Octus Service Medal.


The medal is made of actual steel and feels quite heavy. There’s a code that unlocks Adam Fenix in the multiplayer mode engraved in it.

This edition also comes with a fabric COG flag. Inside the folded flag are some extras as well: the personal effects of Adam Fenix, consisting of his Last Will, Hammer of Dawn schematics, pictures, a letter and a document for the Service Medal.


The game doesn’t come in the regular case. Instead, the box represents the encrypted disc that plays a role in the game’s story. Inside is also a sticker sheet.



In conclusion, this is a very nice collector’s edition. It has some pretty unique items, such as the flag and the metal COG, and the box is well suited for displaying on a shelf. It was relatively cheap when it came out, yet the contents are of high quality. A good item.
