Mark Rein has told Eurogamer the Xbox 360 version of Unreal Tournament 3 could feature a special treat for Gears of Wars fans.

"You might want to keep a close eye on the Unreal Tournament 3 disc. There might be something Gears of War 2 related on that," said Rein.

What, though? A new trailer perhaps? "Might not be! Might be. Whatever!"

However, one thing Rein does know is that Gears of War 2 will be a "much better" game than the original. Better than an eight, apparently:

"I think Gears 1 was better than an eight!" he stated. "You get what you get on reviews. If the best games get an eight, I'm OK with an eight. I dig that - horses for courses."

"I think Gears 2 is a much better game than the original, but we'll have to wait and see what the fans and reviewers think," Rein continued.

"I don't want to give away too much information. It's a just better game... We've improved it in many, many ways that'll be apparent before too long."

Unreal Tournament 3 is due out on Xbox 360 this summer and will feature five fresh maps, two new characters and split-screen play from the off.

Gears of War 2 is due out on Xbox 360 in November.
