Game Rumour‘s posted up new Gears of War 2 details, taken from an interview with Epic engine programmer Mark Thompson. Apparently:

  • COG and Locust will each have 12 character models (they had seven each in the first game).
  • A new map announced, “Dusk” puts players in a smaller, Raven Down style map.
  • New flamethrower has a fuel meter instead of ammo clips, and will jam if continually fired.
  • Hammer of Dawn will have only three charges until it “burns out”. A fourth charge is possible, but it will cause the weapon to explode, killing the character and enemies near by.
