Gears Of War 2 Confirmed For November 08

News coming out of the GDC is that Microsoft have confirmed the existence of Gears Of War 2, and have revealed it is scheduled to hit the 360 as their big stupidly highly hyped game for the holiday season of 2008. Microsoft commented that the Epic developed Gears of War 2 is the sequel to the 2006 best seller, with 4.5 million copies sold worldwide, a game which they boast redefined the tactical/third person/action game genre – although we were not as impressed.

The new game will apparently boast such exciting new things as better shadows, “over 100” Locust enemies on screen at one time, something about lighting, and many destructible environment where you can blow stuff to pieces. Basically the game is been made out to be the second coming of Jesus, and although it should be great when it is finally released, it will never live up too the almost stupid amount of hype that it already surrounding it.
