Gears of War 2 Arrives November 7, 5-player Co-op Confirmed

By Chris Faylor, Jul 14, 2008 11:02am PDT Epic design director Cliff Bleszinski today announced that Gears of War 2 hit Xbox 360 on November 7.

Bleszinski also revealed that the game will sport a new "Horde" mode, which will feature five players combining for online action against an ever-increasing wave of Locus foes.

Highlights:

  • Excellent background effects, with the human home city shown crumbling in the distance.
  • Strange crawling creature that ran along the ground on its two arms.
  • An enemy that used a flamethrower. Cliff then picked up the flamethrower and used it himself.
  • The floo fell out from underneath them at one point, giving way to a new section of the level.
  • An enemy was shown diving left and right to avoid fire.
  • Brumak battle was shown, with the giant monster firing on a building from outside, swarms of smaller enemies at its feet.
  • At one point Dom jumped onto an elevator that moved sideways along a crumbled building.
  • At the end, Dom and Macrus decided to ride the Brumak in order to move faster.
