Spong: Epic Games' VP, Mark Rein, has confirmed to SPOnG that there will be filters in Gears of War 2 to moderate more adult content. He's keen to stress, however, that this does not make Gears 2 a game for kids and casuals.
"Nothing about Gears 2 is 'family friendly' - it is a MATURE title. However there are options for turning down 'strong language' and 'gore'", Rein told SPOnG.
The options in question will turn on-screen blood into sparks and will filter out nasty cuss words.
