Epic Games has announced that Gears of War 2 will join the Xbox LIVE Games on Demand store on October 12, giving gamers the option to download and play the highly rated sequel without leaving their home and without using a disc.

There's no word on pricing just yet, but given the first in the series is currently priced £19.99, expect something around that for the sequel.
