I'm sure a number of you have been chomping at the bit, searching intently for any info on the multiplayer features in Gears of War 2. I'll be the first to admit that we've been able to reveal little about the new modes and features that we'll be tackling later this fall, but all that is over now. To put things simply, the team at Epic has managed to put together what could possibly be the most varied list of multiplayer features on a single Xbox game. One thing is for certain, they want to make sure that getting online, jumping into a party, and fragging the night away is the smoothest and easiest experience Live players have ever seen. And that's all without even opening your dashboard."
