So by now there's a slight chance you've heard something about a little game called Gears of War® 2. Well, the secret is out: Marcus Fenix returns in November 2008, and things just got a lot more interesting. Gears 2 is under development at Epic Games, the studio that created the original blockbuster, and they are hell-bent on bringing a bigger, badder, and even more intense experience to your Xbox 360® this holiday.
The first Gears of War was a technical masterpiece that introduced gamers, in glorious and gory detail, to the full potential of high-definition visuals. By utilizing the technological advances built into the Unreal® Engine 3, Gears 2 is primed to raise the bar yet again. Do you think you know all about "Destroyed Beauty?" Just wait.
Gears of War 2 will continue the saga of Marcus Fenix and Delta Squad as they fight to save humanity from the overwhelming onslaught of the Locust Horde, and will mix the series' trademark tactical action gameplay with an epic story of survival, loss, and retribution-and killing Locust. Lots and lots of Locust. So whatever assumptions you've made, forget 'em. Whatever your expectations are, raise 'em, because Gears of War 2 is coming. November 2008 is right around the corner, and it's going to be one hell of a ride.
