Gears of War doesn't hit stores until next month, but Epic Games is already letting its story unfold online. The game's Web site has been revamped and now concentrates on setting up the game's plot through backstory. When Web surfers visit the site, they're treated to grainy security-cam footage of protagonist Marcus Fenix pacing in a jail cell. Suddenly, the screen goes dark, and players guide Marcus' hand across a wall where they can select from four videos that give a glimpse into what happened before the infamous Emergence Day. Gears of War is scheduled for release on November 7, with nationwide availability by November 12.
