Gears of War 2 Announced for November ’08 Release

What comes as no surprise, CliffyB has announced the sequel to one of my most cherished shooter/chainsawer/gorefest game, Gears of War. While presenting the new community features of XBL Microsoft as well as Epic Games unveiled that there would be a sequel, shortly after a trailer and a press kit was released onto the internet. After months of speculation and rumor, the game was finally announced and is already available for pre-order at Gamestop.


Straight from XBOX:

Providing a dramatic close to Microsoft’s 2008 Game Developers Conference keynote address, lead designer Cliff Bleszinski of Epic Games announced that the heroic saga of Marcus Fenix and Delta Squad will continue exclusively on Xbox 360 this fall withGears of War® 2.

This highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster Gears of War delves deeper into humanity’s struggle for survival against the nightmarish Locust Horde, and takes the high-definition visuals to a whole new level.

“To our team the original game was just a tease, the appetizer to the Gears of War characters and new style of gameplay. We were so amped to get to the next chapter, and dig deeper into the universe of this franchise,” said Bleszinski. “Gears of War 2 is an even bigger, better, and more badass experience than the first game, and we can’t wait to get it in the hands of eager gamers this November.”

Game Features
Gears of War 2 continues the story of Marcus Fenix and Delta Squad, locked in an increasingly desperate battle against the nightmarish Locust Horde for the survival of humanity. Gears of War 2 is an larger-than-life saga of survival, loss, and retribution.

Gears of War 2 is developed by Epic Games for Microsoft Game Studios and joins a growing list of must-have Xbox 360 exclusives. Look for Gears of War 2 when it storms onto retail shelves this November.

Inevitably, the press kit let slip the news that there would be a collectors edition [must buy], a regular edition [duh], and that it will be released this year in November. Oh, the agony, the horror! Why must I wait for so long? Hopefully this game does not distract from the sequel to Resistance: Fall of Man, just as Gears of War did for R:FOM last year.

For those of you in the GAP, that have a 360 you might want to know that there is a new trailer, gamer pics, and a theme available for free on the XBLM. CLICK
