We've had Team Deathmatch and King of the Hill to keep us occupied these past few weeks on the Gears of War 3 beta, but now we can add the newfangled Capture the Leader mode to the lineup, too. A variant on the Guardian and Submission modes from Gears 2 - and ultimately replacing them - Capture the Leader pits two teams against each other, with one member from each chosen as the titular 'Leader', either Prescott or Myrrah.
The objective is simple; protect your 'Leader' whilst trying to capture her opposing counterpart. As the 'Leader', you won't ever die, you'll only be downed, allowing a teammate to revive you or an enemy to capture and hold you for the thirty second-duration to win the round. As the 'Leader', you can see all that is happening on the map, a click of LB allowing you to glimpse friend and foe alike through walls and whatnot. It's a great mode, very tense and exciting, and completing five matches nets you the Urban skin for the Retro Lancer. Catch up on our preview here.
