Official Epic Gears of War 2 Update: Full details

XboxOZ360 reveals the official news update of Epic and Microsoft's Gears of War 2:
"Gears of War 2 is developed by Epic Games exclusively for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system. Players continue the story of Marcus Fenix, a reluctant war hero, as he leads Delta Squad on a series of perilous and adrenaline-pumping missions. Gears of War 2 blends a best-in-class third-person shooter with unsurpassed high-definition visuals, all layered on top of an engaging story of survival, loss and retribution.

* Bigger, better and more badass gameplay. Gears of War 2 builds upon the gameplay of the first title in every way. First, the scope of the action is bigger. New characters, more weapons, nastier enemies, bigger vehicles and grander locales offer players more action, more emotion and more thrills. Next, every major aspect of the game has been refined to create heightened, more immersive experiences. Finally, the overall tone of Gears of War 2 is more badass - replete with new weapon-specific executions, chain saw duels and shocking boss fights."

Sounds like an ad in the paper....

XboxOZ3603593d ago

That's because it's a Press Release . . see the Big Red print under the header bar . . it says PRESS RELEASE.

Which btw, are handed out to approved media outlets to make public in whole unedited . . . if we edit it, we get into trouble .....

Of course it's looks like and sounds like an ad, they (Epic/MGS) ARE trying to sell their game, that being Epic Studios and MGS . .

Sometimes I wonder about those who 'read (cough cough) the articles in here . . . seriously. Read again, it's a Press Release, just like the one for Ninja Gaiden 2, and one for Fable 2 posted and run yesterday that had NO COMPLAINTS, and they were in the exact same format . . . shheezzes . .

TheEndzor3593d ago

no need to really repsond to that as xhi4 took the words right out of my mouth in the gamer zone

JasonPC360PS3Wii3593d ago

Ads or adverts are getting a little old, they should just a 20 questions, do an interview and, show some vids and pics. Thats realy all gamers need, but then again they are trying to snag that casual crown, so they run hollywood style ads and trailers.

xhi43593d ago

at the back of the case..

XboxOZ3603593d ago

What is it with some people in here, do you know what a Press Release IS . . It's a media approved release given to the "Press" to make public facts about the game they (Publishers/Developers) are trying to sell . . .

Hence it being called a "PRESS RELEASE"

It seems one has to make sure one posts things in here when everyone is asleep or when the clowns are asleep at least. We posted two articles under NEWS within the last 18 hours in the exact same Press release format without a single complaint or report, they were approved within a few hours and have gained some favourable (and that's how 'we' spell favourable btw) coverage . . try reading the headings sometimes . . It's the May Update for Gears Of War.

agreed it's a press release, but the press release has no new information of worth to the N4G community.

this makes it irrelevant.

companies send out a lot of press releases, most of them totally worthless, that is why N4G is not full of irrelevant press releases.

hope that helps.

gaminoz3593d ago

I have to disagree with you here: I've seen plenty of MGS4, Resistance 2, Killzone 2 stuff (for example) that's just 'advertising' on N4G....

xhi43593d ago (Edited 3593d ago )

i know your a frequent contributor of this website's postings.

so you say KZ2 Res2 and MGS4 also has ad like posts, that still does not excuse it.

power of Green 3593d ago (Edited 3593d ago )

It is possible what you're saying is a result of trolling.

Food for thought.

Fallen_Angel3593d ago

Ya it more of an ad then a press release but seems like 75% of the stuff on here is crap. They post every lil rumor and peice of info from no name blogs and call it news.

Nevers3593d ago (Edited 3593d ago )

are more geared (no pun) towards the people who aren't us. You know the regular people who don't know everything there is to know about a game the moment any magazine, site, or two-bit blog says something about it... so of course the info's gonna be general because it's not aimed at us.

... still get where you're coming from though

Perhaps so, but it does have 4 newly release screens that were only released on Friday, and it is marked a May Update, nothing more. It does differ from previous releases, so warranted being posted.

If it fails, fair enough, but there's a distinct difference to the readership in here from day to night readers . . . we also got 2 vids from Epic/MGS THIS Friday, but we have yet to reduce them so they can fit on our servers unfortunately (we can't do HD at the moment), but hopefully they'll be up within the hour . . but I suppose they'll be of no value either . . ?

xhi43593d ago

It's fine for you to put the information on your site, but what you have to understand is the N4G community site is different, it is not for every press release and redundant opinion pieces and the like to get submitted, only the most interesting, new and relevant news.

Those 3 newly released screens aren't new at all, they were submitted before, if those 2 videos are the two already released, then of course it's of no value. If they haven't already been submitted to N4G through or some other site then it is of value.

It's a thing called DUPLICATE STORY. Just because it's 'sort-of' new does not allow it to be on N4G.

ne more questions feel free to ask.

XboxOZ3603593d ago

I have honestly taken you valid comments into consideration, but there are times (sorry for the 'but' btw) when we have actually submitted NEW news that NO ONE ELSE had, yet we got a duplicate failure.

I was the only one given approval by MS and the company to cover a Live event, take pics and do an article only hours later, yet we got knocked back because no one bothered to read that it was a Live report and exclusive, and NOT a duplicate, but that it was simply 360 related - unfortunately.

How could it be a duplicate if we were the ONLY ONES covering it.

See the problem . . . some see part of a heading and assume it's a repeat or duplicate without even checking it out properly.

And yes, I do see your point about every press release, we try and get things up as soon as possible, but some within the industry definitely do NOT stick to their NDA's they have signed . . which we refuse to break, simply as a matter of principle.

Again, thanks for your feedback, it IS appreciated.

XboxOZ3603593d ago

Actually he has, and been quite helpful about it to I might add, rather not being constructive, he's been very constructive and has helped. Which is what it should be about, not simply jumping on a bandwagon because someone else has . .I believe the problem has been sorted . .

InMyOpinion3593d ago

Don't bother going in here. This is the mental ward of N4G. You won't get anyone in here to agree with you unless you write something like "PS3 FtW XBUTTS RROD 3FiXmE".
