Gears Of War 2 “Backwards Compatible” Linked Achievements

Cliff Bleszinski made two announcements today at Comic-Con for Gears Of War 2.

1. Steve Jablonsky, composer on films like Transformers and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, was working on the soundtrack for Gears of War 2.

2. Gears of War 2 would feature “linked Achievements.” In short, goals reached in the original Gears of War will carry over to the sequel, giving the player bonuses. Cliff listed three examples of how linked Achievements will work.

SPOiLER ALERT! LOOK AWAY NOW IF YOU DON’T WISH TO READ SPOiLERS! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
