Skorge, the “Predator” style locust seen in a recent Gears of War 2 movie, is a “bad motherfu*ker” with double chainsaws that can cut through a tank. We know because Cliff Bleszinski told us so at a recent Gears of War 2 press event in London.

“Did you have a chance to get to [his part]? So you got to see that he wields a staff with dual chainsaws that can cut through a tank,” said the developer. “He’s a bad motherfu*ker.”

Bleszinski gave some background on the locust boss. He sounds a bit mental.

“I don’t know if you’ve seen the Kantus?” he asked. “They’re the locust priests, and they have all these abilities: they take a lot of hit points, they can evade, they’re kind of like ninjas almost in regards to their mobility.

“They can summon tickers by using their voices, they can control other creatures by using their voices, as well as reviving other locusts that get knocked down with kind of like a rallying cry. If these are the priests of the locust, he’s the head priest, and he’s also very high up in regards to the locust hierarchy, and of course, you have to deal with him later.”

New Gears of War 2 Info

-Cliff B. confirmed that the Skorge (Predator looking mufu*ka. no not me, the sh*t in the game) will be playable in MP, but scaled down in size just as General RAAM is/was.

-No PC version in the works with good reason: "The person who is savvy enough to want to have a good PC to upgrade their video card, is a person who is savvy enough to know bit torrent to know all the elements so they can pirate software." - Cliff B.

-Rumor: Apparently the new GamePro confirms that in all copies of Gears of War 2 there will be a redemption code for players to download 5 remade maps from GoW.


all that info is from joystiq, not verbatim though.

i'd like that last one to be true, although just handing it out there right out the box is kinda unlikely. Cliff did confirm that old maps will be available for download, but so soon, i doubt it. and even if they did they would probably package it with the Special Edition and not just every plain old copy.

(Gold Lancer with Special Edition=Active Downing in style )

Buy Gears of War 2 at midnight and score this golden Hammerburst rifle, in addition to five classic multiplayer maps.

Gamers who buy a new copy of Gears of War 2 will find a special treat -- a redeemable voucher for a free "Flashback" downloadable map pack. Cashing in the voucher over Xbox Live will grant you a free download of five classic (and visually enhanced) multiplayer maps from the original Gears of War: Canals, Gridlock, Mansion, Subway, and Train Station. This brings the total multiplayer map count to 15. The Flashback Map Pack voucher is only included with new copies of Gears of War 2; used versions will obviously be missing the voucher. The download is planned to go live on November 7th, Gears of War 2's launch date.

Furthermore, in addition to the gold-plated Lancer being offered with the Limited Edition Gears of War 2, Epic recently revealed to GamePro that a gold-plated Hammerburst a.ssault rifle will also be available. In order to unlock the gold-plated Hammerburst, fans will need to participated in "Midnight Madness" launch events taking place around the country on the night of November 6th. Players will be able to earn both the golden Lancer and the golden Hammerburst by meeting both requirements.

The golden guns are purely aesthetic tweaks and have no impact on the damage or effectiveness of either weapon&but they sure do look snazzy! Design director Cliff Bleszinski reckons theyll also help foster teamwork online, because the gleaming guns help player visibility so you can spot friends more quickly.

What's more, Microsoft and Epic won't be offering the free downloadable content as paid DLC, telling GamePro that "there are no plans at this time to make them available as paid downloads through LIVE Marketplace." Epic referred to the Flashback Map Pack and golden guns as "special gifts [for] our loyal fans."

Further details about the Flashback Map Pack and the gold-plated guns are available in the November 2008 issue of GamePro, trickling to subscribers now and newsstands in the following days.

no you only get the godlen lancer by pre-ordering the limited edition...you get this (golden hammerburst) by buying the game on day one brand new...So if you pre-ordered the LE edition and you get it day one...then you get two golden guns...

my thoughts exactly. like c'mon...the manual son? when ya'll did this for LBP in PDF format i thought that was the last manual we'd see posted, but c'mon son. it is Gears and all, but c'mon. there's a fine line between being excited for a game and just being completely obsessed with a game. i think it's getting crossed here by BX.
