Snoopers and Bryan uploaded this nice video showing the new functionalities added in the Unreal Engine 3, most of them for Gears of War 2 without a doubt.

Interesting stuff, the video itself is a little dark, it was hard to make out the character model differences at all.

I love that liquid metal effect with the viscosity, I'd rather be fighting blobs like that than locus hordes any day.

I hope we do see these improvements in Gears of War 2, I'd be interested then.

Impressive stuff. Shame i don't really like gears of war lol

Soft body physics looked awesome. Cant wait for games to use some of this.

Nice... that is if they can't pull it off realtime in gears 2 on the 360 in the context of the game.

Amazing stuff for sure! bring it on GOW2

I like the destructible environment effect. If it's used creatively maybe we can see more Red Faction-ish games.

the fluid surface dynamics looks awesome, 2nd to none.

Yes!

Didn't they say 4 player co-op this time around!?
Would be soooo great!

thanks for the video dood! I read the article on ign about this just a while ago. =D and holy SH*T those are some rad physics!
Commented on 2008-02-20 23:49:14
If they get all this tech in GeoW2 than that's awesome, but I don't trust these tech-demos anymore. I'll believe it when I see it in the retail game.

man thats cool, water is on par with Halo 3 only with better reflections, soft body physics look pretty incredible (that blob of metal or w/e was pretty rad), and hopefully more enemies means the gameplay will be a bit different
and destructable cover? hmmmmm....as long as its not like that john woo game where everything will destroy shit from a pistol to a minigun
All they need is some weapons up to UT standards and Gears 2 will kick more ass then pretty much anything in the world =)

Marcus's armor is different!

Destructable enviroments, no more noobs hidding behind cars and pillars forever, mwahahaha

could the game be set in sera? marcus looking out to the sea, with the bridge looks very earth like, i doubt it though..

can't wait..

That video is insane. Man, today has been something.
Commented on 2008-02-20 23:57:11
looking fantastic, i just hope the story is more deep this time, coz that was the weekest part of the game in the first one

That water with the bridge thing is one of the multiplayer maps on Gears 1 if i'm not mistaken.

4 player co-op, more weapons, a more in-depth story, plus all the things presented in the UE3 tech demo, and this game will be absolute class.

Not that I want to get bouletted, but I just have to say it (please don't, this needs to be said). This video just owned a LOT of Sony fanboys, especially the ones who claimed Gears 2 would only be Gears 1 with new maps with absolutely no improvements, because, obviously, Gears 1 already used ZOMG 100% of the 360's power. Talk about eating humble pie. UT3 who?

i have a feeling that gears of war 2 will suck. i'm positive it will be the best looking game out on the 360 but will be shitty in gameplay. just saying this because they havn't really spent that much time on the second game and its going to be released soon. unless it gets delayed which seems to be all the rage these days. i think gears of war 2 will be nothing more then a game built to show off the new graphics engine.

Why would it have shitty gameplay when the gameplay in Gears of War 1 was freaking awesome?

While I love GeoW, it was extremely repetitive and as a result, I find myself not enjoying it as much with each consecutive playthrough. Hopefully they find a way to change up the gameplay a bit.

Exactly. I really think that Epic can pull this off and do it good too :)

With excellent planning and a good grasp of the hardware, developers can deliver a AAA game within two years. Insomniac does this year after year and there is no reason for Epic not to be able to do this. GeoW 2 will be AAA calibur.
