The fastest rising superstar in today’s hip-hop music scene is teaming up with Microsoft Game Studios and Epic Games to lend his voice to “Gears of War 3.” Set to release his much-anticipated debut album, “Thank Me Later,” on June 15, Grammy-nominated recording artist Drake is voicing Jace Stratton, a new playable character in the upcoming finale to one of the most celebrated sagas in video games.
In the finale to one of gaming’s most recognizable sagas, Epic has added four player cooperative campaign gameplay, allowing them to bring characters from the extended “Gears” universe to life.
Ice-T joins the cast with fellow hip-hop sensation Drake, bringing their voices and personalities to new characters in the “Gears of War” universe.
“I’ve been a huge fan of Ice my whole life, and it turns out he’s a big fan of Gears,” said Epic Games Design Director, Cliff Bleszinski. “His legendary tough-as-nails, street-smart persona fits perfectly with Griffin.”
In the final chapter of the trilogy, Griffin leads a rag-tag group of human survivors, known as the Stranded, who Marcus Fenix and Delta Squad will encounter as they battle the infected Lambent.
