I’m a big fan of the chainsaw, so when Gears of War was initially announced I collapsed on the floor and nearly died out of excitement. A gun with a chainsaw attachment is a brilliant thing, and I don’t think I will be any less inclined to love it the second time around with Gears of War 2. Recently, we got some information that pertains to the GoW 2’s limited collector’s edition pack. Gold-plated Lancer and bonus DVDS are now confirmed! Take a look below and see what is offered in all of its glory.
- “Beneath the Surface: An Inside Look at Gears of War 2,” a 48-page hardbound book including character profiles, exclusive concept art, and foreword by Design Director Cliff Bleszinski
- Bonus DVD including exclusive making-of-the-game video footage, design galleries with audio commentary by Epic Games, and promotional videos including the E3 2008 trailer, “Rendezvous”
- Dominic and Maria Keepsake Photo
- SteelBook™ DVD case (holds all of this stuff in it)
- Exclusive Xbox LIVE code to unlock a gold-plated Lancer Assault Rifle for online play
Although I’m a bit disappointed that the gold gun seems to be a run at what Army of Two offered, I’m equally excited about using it to mow down people on Live. The DVD seems very run-of-the-mill, but the photo is a cute little item. I wonder if Dominic and Maria will ever be able to live out their love-struck dreams in a Locust infested world? By the way, all this stuff can be yours for the low, low price of 70 bucks.
