I guess it’s not surprise for anybody that Gears of War 2 is a game that’s going to enjoy all the attention its being offered: following the immense success had by the Metal Gear Solid 4 midnight launch shows, we’ll surely see much more in the future. And Microsoft plans to get everything to the next level with Gears of War 2, preparing a midnight launch event spanning over 20,000 game stores!

The event has a pretty straightforward name: the Gears of War 2 Midnight Mayhem and is set to kick of at midnight on Friday in each country the game’s being released in. So… should we keep our eyes open for more funny stories involving gamers, work places and the huge desire to play GoW2? Yes, we will, I’m sure there will be lots of stories to tell.

Back to the Gears of War 2 Midnight Mayhem, if you live in London, LA or New York you might want to take part in the leading events where people that worked on Gears 2 will be present there and you’ll have the chance to win all sorts of game based merchandise. So get your coat ready, warm up that coffee and prepare for a big Thursday night!
