VGM: "Set six months after the events in the original Gears, we're introduced to the aftermath of the failure of the Lightmass bomb. Inevitably, Locust are crawling everywhere, lurking around every corner. Now there's even more of them, in much more powerful denominations. They're even armed with a weapon of catastrophic proportions (of course). Leave it to Delta Squad to protect the planet Sera from all that ails it, including some new recruits the Locust hordes have picked up."
