Gears of War 2 Monday Kickstart: Multiplayer Behind the Scenes, Cliff Bleszinski Interview and Game Footage

GameTrailers just posted three new Gears of War 2 videos this morning that you’ll surely want to check out. First up is a behind the scenes video previewing the game’s new multiplayer features (it’s the same video that’s included with the Xbox 360 Unreal Tournament 3, which hits retail today). After that is a “Wartime Interview” with Cliff Bleszinski, and then to cap things off is a video of straight multiplayer gameplay footage (it’s basically the behind the scenes video minus the commentary). I like what I see so far, many of the small tweaks, added mechanics and new weapons look great. Of course, my problem with the first game was its shit story, so I won’t be sold on Gears 2 until I see how the storytelling is being improved.
