[Update – Release date confirmed at E3, November 7th]
Gears of War 1 had “meh” multiplayer playability. It looks like they took a page out of Call of Duty 4’s book, because the gameplay resembles a grittier battlefield, with melee attacks that shred your online opponent in half. I’m liking their hostage attack, but I could have sworn I saw the hostage firing back. Check it out and let me know.
