Epic today released a set of new Gears of War 3 screenshots, and those who prefer actual in-game shots to pre-rendered fluff are being well catered for.

Most of these are in-engine, and around half are even proper in-game screens, with ammo counters, rough textures and everything. Bravo, Microsoft, this is the kind of stuff we like to see.

Gears of War won't be out until 2011, but with E3 taking place next week you can expect to see a lot more of the game in the days to come.
