During the Gears of War 2 presentation at Comic-Con, Cliff Bleszinski unveiled an interesting and new twist for Achievements. Apparently, Gears of War 2 will feature “linked Achievements,” which depending on what you accomplished in the original Gears of War, will unlock playable characters in the upcoming sequel. Kotaku was present when Cliff announced the new system and jotted down a list of his examples.
In addition to the Achievements announcement, journalists were also told that Steve Jablonsky was at the helm for the soundtrack of Gears of War 2, and is nearly finished with his work. Jablonsky is the man responsible for the Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath soundtrack, as well as films like The Island and Transformers. While I don’t mind Jablonsky’s work, I’m more excited about the retroactive Achievement bonuses. It gives me a reason rekindle my chainsaw lust. Anyone up for some co-op?
