Well, isn't that a pleasant surprise? The first gameplay footage for Gears of War 2 has arrived a bit earlier than we originally expected it to, thanks to 1UP.
Without giving too much away, I will say that the video above reveals Gears of War 2 to be a beefed up version of the original game, which is not a bad thing at all. More enemies on-screen, larger firefights, improved visuals, and a new roster of chainsaw attacks ... it's looking like Epic Games has taken everything that made the first Gears enjoyable and expanded upon it.
Two more videos will be out shortly, so check back here before too long.
