According to a preview article in Xbox 360 magazine, Gears of War 2 will have some insane new multi-player modes, weapons and details. Check the bullet-points:
- Ten person, 5v5 online multiplayer.
- Halo style matchmaking.
- Respawning multiplayer modes, but with the focus still on "Dead and you're out" gameplay.
- Finishing moves against downed enemy...curb-stomping, face-punching, pistol-whipping, and meat-shielding: Where you use your enemy's body as a shield. Gross! Effective!
There's a ton more info in the magazine, which you should buy when it hits stands, but if you can't wait:
