During the X08 event in Toronto last night, Joystiq was able to sit down with Epic Games lead designer Cliff Bleszinski and talk chop about Gears of War 2. Cliff discussed the pacing and intensity of Horde Mode, the trouble with too many players in co-op and his quick impressions of Too Human.

X08 Toronto allowed invited gamers in the Greater Toronto Area (yes, the GTA) to participate in a showcase of upcoming Xbox 360 retail and Arcade releases. Gears of War 2 was a surprise showing with a multiplayer build from E3 2008. Everyone was on the edge of their seat. Jump in for a few choice comments from Cliff Bleszinski, perfect for those of your reading this in a library and unable to listen to the actual interview!

Download this interview in MP3 format


Cliff on co-op

"The thing about a campaign is, when you start getting over two players - it's cool to have that, but - the narrative quality decreases exponentially with more players. Once you get a third or a fourth player in there then you're in the middle of f!ghting a bad guy and somebody's triggering a cutscene and people are flapping their gums and nobody knows what's going on with the story. Whereas if you keep it two-players, keep it focused, grab a buddy and go through the blockbuster experience and then grab five players and f!ght against the Locust. That's how we're doing it."

Cliff on achievements

"You can chip away at achievements (in Gears of War 2) essentially in every, single mode. So, if you're playing by yourself you can start chipping away at the Seriously 2.0 achievement. If you're playing in co-op, if you're playing in ranked or private matches ... all of it. Everything counts towards achievements this time around. We wanted to be a lot more forgiving with it. The nicest thing is we have a little achievement tracker that pops up in the bottom right occasionally so it's our way of just letting you know, "Hey, we're paying attention!" If you curb-stomp a guy we say, "Oh, you know if you do 10 more of those you might start getting towards an achievement. Kind of adds that kind of, psuedo-RPG grind element in the background."

Cliff on Too Human

"I have [played Too Human]. I think it's a solid game."

Will there be any unlockable content in "Gears of War 2" earned for playing through "Gears of War 2" itself then?

Cliff: Yes, just like the first game, players can unlock the "Insane" difficulty level by completing the game. I can't wait for everyone to try out Horde mode on Insane, it is truly one of the most challenging feats you'll ever play. Also, as players progress through Gears 2 they will have the opportunity to unlock additional characters for multiplayer, including:

Ben Carmine
Dizzy Wallin
Tai Kaliso
Locust Kantus
Flame Grenadier
A new villain that we'll reveal very soon. He makes RAAM look like a pus*y cat.

I just got a new Xbox 360 yesterday and scooped a copy of Gears 1 today in prep for Gears 2. Just started playing the campaign and I already know I'm gonna get hooked on this game. And after seeing the pics and clips in this thread for the sequal, all I can say is "Well, there goes the last two months of MY year." Haha. And I get two weeks paid vacation for Christmas (God bless salaried positions)....not going to be the most productive two weeks I've ever had, to be honest. G2 looks like it's going to be ri-god-damn-diculous.
