Gears of War 2 dev lead Cliff Bleszinski, speaking at a recent event in London, said that the title contains as yet unrevealed narrative elements that have never before been seen in a game.
"I can't talk about any of it without spoiling it to be honest," he said. "Let's just say that narrative-wise we take some risks in the game that I haven't seen a videogame ever do."
Bleszinski wouldn't be drawn on the specific nature of sequel's risky aspects, so you'll just have to wait until November 7 to see for yourself.
