New Interview with Cliffy B (lots of executions!!!)

New Multiplayer Footage!

Gamespot Preview

There's a bit more info to run through in terms of the tech improvements and gameplay. For those anxious to know the tech stuff going on under the hood of the game, we offer a small laundry list of features being implemented in the latest version of Epic's Unreal Engine. The engine now features a what's what of tech speak that includes ambient occlusion, improved character lighting, improved shadow lighting, liquid dynamics, soft body physics, a new fracture system, a new decal system that marks the world with your handiwork, and enhanced world detail. On top of the hard tech enhancements, the Gears 2 art team is taking advantage of the new engine and adding a host of touches, such as higher res characters, weapons, and enemies, as well as detailed blood decals and tracers. This all adds up to a better looking game although, to be fair, all this stuff may not jump out at you initially. The game retains the same overall look as its predecessor, although we've already seen a greater variety in environments, which naturally lend themselves to a broader color palette.

-- From Gamespot

1UP Multiplayer Preview

A lot of new gameplay changes not only make a visceral game even more visceral (thus the "badder" part of the equation here), but they just plain make sense, too. Would-be lumberjacks will have a lot more gut-ripping fun with the Lancer in Gears 2, but at the same time, they won't be invulnerable like they were before. Other new moves like wall hugging, the ability to interrupt doorway "SWAT" turns, being able to crawl to safety while bleeding out, and a ton of new execution **** give the game more realistic combat options.

IGN Multiplayer Preview
IGN Multiplayer Preview 2.0 (Bigger, better, and more badass)

Yup, we can confirm, the violence has remained intact. Something, in our sensitive Manhunt and prostitute-swording times, Cliffy's quick to defend: "The violence is slapstick. It's fun, not nauseous. These are ridiculously large space marines cutting lizards in half!" Locust now have individual finishing animations, and they are cool and varied. Rather than just stepping on heads, you get COGs kneeing enemies in the chest, flipping them over and curb stomping. Sometimes a downed enemy takes multiple fists to the face till it's just meat, and "meat fest" is the only way to describe grenade sticks – which you can also now do in a retaliatory nature from beyond the grave. Nice touch. Get downed, and you can beg for mercy from your opposition. Hmm… what do you think?

Looks like they finally added some color. Shades of brown and grey annoyed me in the first Gears of War.

The graphics look a lot better. Can't wait to play this in co-op. I had some pretty good times with the first one.

I also like this thread. Good job, Bud.

Here's what I'm hyping for the sequel (both announced and unannounced/speculation, in no specific order):

  • Removed host advantage
  • Removed "one-shot down" snipes
  • Added 5 vs. 5 MP
  • Longer campaign; supposedly 2x original
  • Deeper story
  • 4-Player online co-op (unannounced)
  • New executions
  • Improved roadie run
  • Online bots with smart AI system
  • Chainsaw duels
  • Matchmaking/Party system (Halo 3 style)
  • Added weapons (Flamethrower!)

It's shaping up to be quite a sequel indeed. Bring on November 2008.

Thanks a lot, chief.:P

I mostly excited for the new campaign. But on the multiplayer side, I'm intrigued by the 4 player co-op and no more "one-shot down" sniper kills.

I used to be looking forward to Gears 2, now I think I'm not going to bother with it. I think I've experianced everything the franchise has in the first one.

Wow. This game is looking absolutely amazing. It has almost everything that I wanted, the new maps looks awesome, and the ones with the guns that detect movement. Proximity grenade wall tagging, a flamethrower, new executions. The new pistol looks deadly too. Meatflag looks awesome too, cant wait to try that out. Oh I hope november gets here soon.

Will there be a ranking system this time? Not like a leaderboards thing, but rather one like Halo and Call Of Duty? That would make me want to play the multiplayer longer than I did in the first game. It got boring because there was no point of playing it beacuse you never earned anything. COD and Halo have excellent ranking systems and if Gears could do something like this, then this game is going to be a must buy for many gamers.

My only problem with the proximity grenades is I hope there is someway for players to know what they're about to run in to. Like maybe a subtle beep or something.

I think there is from some of the videos, but I may be wrong.

The action sequences look far more epic than, dare I say, Call of Duty 4....

The game just looks incredible.
