This week we are going to have special co-op night with the help of the folks at Microsoft. They are launching the Live, Liberty and Pursuit of Gamerscore promotion to celebrate the 4th of July in the United States. And what better way to celebrate than to take out some Locust scum with your buddy in Gears of War!
Gears of War is still one of the top rated Co-Op games on this site. Why? With drop in and drop out support, as well as a tight integration of the co-op experience into the story, Gears of War exemplifies what we look for in our co-op games.
The game supports two players via Split Screen, LAN, or Xbox Live. One player controls the main character of Marcus Fenix while the other player assumes the role of Dominic Santiago. To survive the onslaught of the locust horde you'll need to work together by providing cover, communicating, and just generally watching each other's backs.
Launching this week is the Gears of War 2-Disc edition which features an exclusive look at the upcoming sequel to the game. So grab your controller, grab a buddy and hop on Xbox Live on July 3rd for some Gears of War Co-Op!
