These scans are from the May 2008 issue of Game Informer which features a Gears of War 2 exclusive cover story. The screens look much better in the magazine, so pick it up as soon as you can!
Damn, I want this game. I want it NOWWWW. I will get a 360 again for this specifically. Will be picking Resistance 2 and this up at launch. So many good games coming out this year across all platforms. EDIT: btw, guys buy the magazine.
I aim to learn to play one with my feet. That way I wont miss out on anything :P
Haha.agreed. That way your eyes are glued to the screen.
http://www.vitosverdict.com... Looks like they took inspiration from the mist
Yo for real, if they would fix the equipment issues I would bu a 360 to play this game. It looks awesome
not a fan of the first one, fix this plz.
This is going to be big for 360.
Yeah man I can't wait to play this game. If you own a 360 you have to own this game. I bought a PS3 primarily for MGS4 and I must keep my 360 for Gears of War 1-3. This is sure to be a big system seller for Microsoft this holiday. I hope Gears 3 will follow within a year of Gears 3 but something tells me they will wait for the new 360 before launch the final game.
The earlier scans did not do the game justice but this...this is where its at. I love it.
I could not even see the earlier scans. It looked too blurry. But this is just awesome.
Just LOL at greatness
now we know where the meat cubes came from hahahah awesome looking stuff
Dam we went from blurry to... too up close and grainy lol. Good looking out though we can read the text.
Technology is a beats I tellz you.
You didn't have to dissagree I was just giving the poster(you) sh8t(was joking). Wow this post is sounding like the alien agent in the movie DreamCatcher. lol
I did not disagree with you man. I agreed with you actually.
yup pog is right the pics are s bit grainy but the images are awesome people just imagine the ingame scan of the big new tank the derrick in action with cog firing on the locust and marvelous ducked under cover just looking at that pic and the size of that monster tank ingame it baffles me to know how big and detailed the environments will be WOW ALSO NOT HE ALSO said ue3 was built to last the cycles of the 360 (2012) gears of war 2 will be bigger in every way we will seee wonders of gigantic scales in this game detailed to the mass even gears of wear 1 looks better than mgs4.
i got my GI in the mail today, and wow!...it blew my socks off!
it looks great.Played the original again today after 5 months,and damn the game is fantastic.can't even begin to imagine how great the sequel will be.
I just blew a load in my pants seeing these nice high quality scans.
to see this game coming on nicely. i heard cole train and baird aint gonna be in this. nooooooooooo whos gonna bring the funny one liners that cole does
Cole & Baird are still a big part of the game, they are just not at the very start...until then, there are some new characters to meet...I'm sure Cole has some brand new one liners as well...
From what I heard they will both make an appearance in the game but will not be part of the main story arc. You can't stop the train!
from what i read... cole and baird will join you later on in the game, or atleast be a big part
Just Look at this masterpiece... no other comment about... Great work epic!!!!!
nice scans!, thats what im talking about
Biggest game of the year by far
it's not even out little friend.
sorry bro im a big gears fan but there are too many games coming out to say its the biggest of the year. MGS4 GTA IV GEARS 2 RESIST. 2 Until we play those we really cant say. gears looks amazing tho
hahahahahahahaha guys we all know these are ingame screen shots the weapon fire on the mob tellls us and yes they look amazing this game will be bigger than gears 1 and will be in a much larger scale and just look at the graphics of this unfinished build its breathtakeing the detial rivlals crysis .also @azbove biggest games this year will be fable 2 ,gears 2,too human,gta 4,fallout 3,alanwake,ng2 and yes i just got a pse 3 months a go si i should know .
This game looks incredible. I think the Gears series has pushed the 360 most graphically of what it can do. But don't go saying biggest game of the year 'by far', cos it makes you look stupid. Its up there yes, and these scans just tell me its easily a AAA game. But frankly i think MGS4 is a better contender for game of the year. For one thing, every reviewer has been blown away by it, and secondly, i know it will have an incredible story. Something the first gears sadly lacked in. But lets just give credit where its due cos the scans are amazing
wrong, this year will be between:
Gears of War 2
GTA 4: Nothing else will be close!
MGS will cheat sales by being a pack-in, so I'm not even counting that if the stick to the move of packing MGS.
looks like artwork-not scans-get it right. until epic either releases a next gen engine or calls infinity ward there games will always play with good graphics and slow play or fast play and no hit detection, either way they are both laggy online regardless. just my 2 cents.
but the rest of your comment is BS, now try again.
get outta here
where did blademask go ;)?
quote-"Biggest game of the year by far"
hipe machine-not the biggest game-not even close.
i can think of bigger games with ease
...and not a single one of those games have seen the light of day either, yet you are claiming the very same thing. You guys wish to get into an ego debate about the unproven then take it into the open zone and quit smelling the place up in here.
I liked that comment ArmrdChaos, made me smile. Just as I was reading I was thinking that same thing, scroll down and there is your perfect comment.
Now to his comment. Will Gears be big? yeah based on the fanbase, love, sales and hype of the first one, it's only safe to assume it will be as equal or better. As good, I don't know, but it will give GTA4 and MGS4 a run for there money. It's good the devs are spreading those titles through out the year, could you imaging if those three were released in November?
I agree with Jason 360 that its great all these great games are spaced out this year instead of crammed altogether. Now we can play each one and really enjoy before judging which one is the best. We have GTAIV first then MGS4, Killzone 2, then Resistance 2 and Gears 2 will be showing up this holiday. And thats just the biggest named games. There are alot more coming this year to keep us busy
Biggest game of the year? Gears 2, MGS or GT? I think the Koreans have something to say about that...cough*STARCRAFT*cough
Looks like Jason360 was right!. Battle fields that are radically different from part one.
If you read this man tell me more on XBL.
I love Epics cheesy gritty game because rather bizarrely i buy into the reality of it all far more than something like Resistance.Resistance's story is forced in a way that it feels like you could imagine a group of people coming up with the idea round a table in a pub somewhere.Halo is a little ludicrous really but as a game it's captivating and i so want the whole thing to be true when i play it - i do essentially believe when i play Halo though and it's something i never did with Resistance.
Gears very much impressed me first time round and the sequel looks to be amazing
You're by yourself there buddy. The story in Resistance is MUCH more engaging than Epic... Epic's strength is definitely not in good stories. The scans look fantastic though. This may be the 360's one saving grace... however, still doesn't look like enough for me to buy another 360 with the likes of MGS4, KZ2, & R2 on the PS3 (although, except for the backgrounds, these scans look just as good as the R2 scans did). I'll wait to see actual gameplay footage.
Props!! This game gonna be amazing.
Looks great...keep up the good work epic. Im only buying two games this year this and GTA. I would buy MGS4 but I dont have a PS3 so I will rent it and borrow my friends PS3. See you all online.
WOW! REAL scans? nah we all know real scans are done with a crappy camera and the most blurry they are the more legit and pro the job is XD
Now to business it looks like Epic is granting me some of my wishes for Gears 2 like more enemy variety and more radically deferent sceneries, also by the looks of thing gears 2 is gonna be a more radical look at the Gears universe then the first 1...which is a VERY good thing
the environment's level of detail and lighting looking way more realer than MGS4's.
I guess epic and 2k are the only ones that really know the secrets to making unreal work for them.
in my opinion epic gave birth to one hell of an engine.
It looks great!
gears2! UE3 perfected on ps3 carried over to 360. ha ha ha
it started on PC then perfected on 360.....and then they tried to make it compatible with ps3's cell architecture....they did do a great job but gears 2 is getting a major up grade, said by the maker him self of unreal technologies.
You think those look good? It looks like SH1T. This game will be SH!T. This wont come close to the likes of Resistance 2 or killlzone 2. I feel bad for you bots and your sh!tty games. hahaha.
good luck to all my former friends with this game, you're going to need it. Halo, gears and forza 2 are the games I sacrificed to get my ps3. Sometimes I miss them but until those studios feel the hit. I will not support a system where I lose in the end. Besides, its just a game but my money will be used properly for a long term investment. Now I'm off to play ut3 with marcus fenix. Good times. Play to win and I hope noone gets hardware failure until they beat the game and has a high rank in the leaderboards. If so, please do not get another box, just replace the refurbished one for a ps3 and hang on until epic realeases the directors cut with both games on one disc. Be strong.
characters and environment's level of detail
the more they fix those issues the more popular the engine will be come. ( i think they just started a big trend, more and more games won't look like sh!t )
and that's a good thing.
i'm not talking about gears1 or the engine it's self having issues, i'm talking about what most games have problems with.
didn't mean to sound like it was disrespect towards my favorite or anyone's favorite game and engine.
HOLY.....F*CK.....THAT....LOOK S.....AMAZING....... PS3.....IS.....F*CKED...... lmfao@ no droids in here. Their assholes are so raw they can't type LMFAO. but, but, but, resistance twooooooo LLLMMMFFFAAAOOO. Resistance 2 can suck a d1ck. It is sh1t compared to Gears 2. just like the first one was to Gears 1. bow down or die.
I actually like it more when the bring up killzone 2. makes me laugh.
I remember the fiasco that was the E3 Killzone 2 CGI "it's in game" trailer. Then when the next E3 when they finaly showed the engine everyone was all like WOW OH Sh!t! but then people started getting a closer look, and time wen't one and the game stayed grey. Since then other games have been released that surpass Killzone, but killzone still looks the same. That game went from BS to WOW to WHO?
Ayup. Krapzone is black and white and blurry all over. Krap AI too. Gears shall utterly destroy its feeble existence.
What is so wow here??? Im'a missing something?? It looks like Gears 1 for gods sake (check the attached picture).. And stop trash talkin Killzone and Resistance becus they're lookin promesing, Stop bein so desperate.. plus this scans is crappy lookin artwork... And it will probebly be as short as the first one, wasnt it like 3 hours long or something?? Anyway if there is a 360 game to be hyped about its Mass Effect 2.. in the mean time I will prolly be playin, Killzone 2, Metal Gears Solid 4, Resistance 2, GTA-VI and many more.....
THIS is the thing that will DESTROY the feeble PS3, right??!?!?</sarcasm> You have to be kidding. Or again, let me emphasize your denial. All the Xbox fanboys keep complaining that this is turning into a Sony website, when all people are doing is reporting the news. And looks at yourselves. Your proclaiming Sony's death over Gears2? It's because you have nothing else to celebrate. It's all gone. The "quality" customer service, the multitude of games compared to PS3.... You lost. But you won't admit it.
One game is going to destroy an entire gaming console? I don't think it's THAT epic :P
does this guy have???
Anyway wasn't Halo 3 supposed to destroy the PS3?
Why can't ppl agree that both systems can have their own good games?
Looking good. But by saying that KZ2 and R2 are going to suck just shows how much of a f*cking retard you are. Good job.
KZ2 will [email protected]
maybe I'll buy GI for the first time in like 3 years. I usually look at it in the store. I loved the first game so this is just what I need till Nov or until E3 or TGS. Any attempt at a scans, you gets props from me. Thanks Seems like EPIC has been listening. It's very rare a new IP lives up to the hype and I think Gears did that, so to blow me away with the second game is gonna take a lot but it's looking promising. "The first game was a visual tour de force, and it's sequel is set to impress in equal measure" Oh, I'm not worried about the Graphics... Stick to the Formula and build on it, as well as that engine, is all I want. For the haters can S$%k a fat one. I know ps3, wii and 360 gamers that don't hate on this game, even if they dislike MS or the 360's hardware. As far as GOTY, I don't really care, Gears has not much to prove, it will sell 2 million first day alone. I can't say the same for other games.
But definitely looks better than the first.
you still can't say anything positive about anything 360/Ms without a little bias negativity, as if you can count the polygons from the scans. It's all good bra...continue to "Count Polygons from Scans", I'll be gaming. I'm sure you'll never play this game anyhow.. I remember everyone saying Gears was the Peak of the 360, and how can EPIC improve this game, in any fashion, well there ya go. In every fashion possible, it's looking like.
