Gears of War 2 (finally) goes on sale November 7. Which is still a long way off for anyone who’s been patiently waiting for a sequel to the much-lauded tactical shooter. To help ease your anxiety, we offer this clip from Epic Games, which features design director Cliff Bleszinski and his colleagues talking about the GoW phenomenon — as well as some never-before-seen in-game footage from GoW2. One other thing: it contains some pretty graphic footage that might not be suitable for younger ones and those with delicate sensibilities. If you’re under 18 years of age — or are put off by the sight of animated violence — do not proceed to the jump page.
