A 12 page preview from US mag Game Informer tells all, Epic's Gears of War 2 is an Xbo360 exclusive that'll hit stores this November.
Drop-in co-op play, more expansive campaign, more weapons, more collectibles, more back-story, more characters, more Locust, less linear battles and even more action. Now that's a sequel.
The game has already been showcased at the past GDC, its evolution visually is enough to illicit excitement and that's before getting to the new and better game mechanics. It’s got better environmental lighting, better ambience, soft-body physics, greater water effects, the ability to have huge Locust hordes flood the battle and more. Apparently the Insane difficulty level will be nothing less than "truly devastating."
