Gears of War 2 First Gameplay Footage

The very first gameplay footage from Gears of War 2 has been released. It is introduced by Cliff Bleszinski, the game’s lead designer and all-around cool guy.

The video is from the third chapter in the game, showing off Brumaks, large-scale warfare and chainsaw duels, among many other things. Quite an exciting video!



Gears of War 2 is due out this November exclusively on Xbox 360.

Gears of War Movie Faces Budget Problems

The risk of betting so much money on such a franchise is also another factor.
