Arrow Gears of War 2 Revealed!

Powered by UE3.5!
Quote:
While there most likely won't be an official announcement anytime soon, Gametap revealed that former EA Chicago GM Kudo Tsunoda is now with Microsoft as Project Lead for the new Gears of War game. Tsunoda was recruited by Don Mattrick, formerly at EA Vancouver, where they both worked on the Fight Night series. Mattrick also recently reeled in former Tiburon boss and EA's Vice President of Worldwide Studios John Schappert to run Microsoft's Xbox Live. According to other rumors, GoW2 will run on Unreal Engine 3.5, have 4 new weapons, be twice as big as the original, have controllable air vehicles, new melee moves, etc...

Sounds like an expansion pack rather then a true sequel... I mean 4 new weapons only? Extra Melee moves? (didn't the game really only have a single melee attack?)

I mean everyone knew they were going to make another one (wasn't it announced as a trilogy?), it sold more then enough thats for sure...

how would it be an expansion if it's gonna be twice as big as the original?

extra melee moves would be kicking, doing some neck snapping or use monster body as cover, etc. a lot more that i can think of. 4 new weapons, woot, original gow does have fairly amount of weapons so that should be plenty. and now you can drive air vehicles. finally, a upgrade to the engine (3.5) with all new fancy ****.

that's more than just an expansion.

hopefully the MP is done correctly this time... I'm sure I stand mostly alone, but I felt like the MP was terribly done, random headshots, chainsaw/curb-stomp animations that made you invisible, it was playing a game of luck more than a game of skill. Probably why I didn't enjoy the mp that much.

I know its been said, but I'm saying it again. How can something twice as long be an expansion pack?

Think about a response here.
