The best part of this video, to me, is the last couple of seconds. Horde mode – Five players online co-op versus wave after wave of Locust. I love playing online so much more versus NPC’s then just versus other humans. Unreal Tournament 2003 had “Invasion”, which is basically the same thing, everyone fought against increasingly difficult waves of monsters and it was really, really fun. I seriously can’t wait, for me online in the original Gears of War was absolutely horrible, it wasn’t fun at all, and this gives me something to really look forward to.
Looks pretty intense. I like Marcus shooting the one Locust in the face, then using him as a body shield and then, after he’s done with him, moving him to the edge, breaking his neck and finally throwing him off the side. They can’t be dead enough, you never know with those guys.
You knew it was coming sooner or later, Gears of War was just too radical. The trailer really doesn’t show that much game play, but what are you going to do? There is already some box art for the game, one for the limited edition and one for the regular edition. No details about what the limited edition comes with yet, but I’m sure it will be super awesome.
Gears of War 2 is set to come out in November, and it is still Xbox 360 exclusive.
