Gears of War 2 trailer on Xbox Live tonight

The first Gears of War gameplay trailer will arrive on Xbox Live Video Storetonight at 11 PM PDT in the US and 7 AM for the UK, Microsoft has revealed.

With a "personal introduction" by Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski, the trailer offers the first in-game look at the "bigger, better and more badass" gameplay in Gears 2. Cliffy will probably make a prat of himself, too.

According to Microsoft, the trailer will feature the first look at chainsaw duels, large scale fire fights and "stunning new visuals." We hope it's worth altering our Friday night plans.

Microsoft's media summit is due to go down this Tuesday, May 13, where we'll hopefully see even more of Epic's sequel. Stay tuned.
