Stranded launch Gears of War 2 in Toronto tunnels

The setting was hot, dark and dingy ... the perfect place to launch one of the most anticipated titles of the year. Deep beneath the blistering city of Toronto, Microsoft held an invite only event to introduce the world to Gears of War 2. Located in the closed off section of the Bay Street subway tunnels, dozens of people ranging from press to community had a chance to play Gears of War 2 on November 6. The setting felt perfect to launch a game based on the survival of the human race and everyone seemed to have a blast playing through the campaign, multiplayer and five-player co-op Horde mode. Don't believe us? Check out the images from the event.
