Im currently about halfway through GoW 2, and just finished reading Aspho Fields. I was wondering if I can read Jacinto’s Remnant without it spoiling too much of the rest of GoW 2?
I mean, i know some stuff will be spoiled, like probably how the game ends, but does it spoil a lot of the smaller details, too?
Someone who has more knowledge hopefully will come along, but the best as I can recall, the books generally are in between games as stories. Doesn’t mean they won’t allude to something, but enjoyable on their own as separate events.
Somewhere on the forums is a timeline of books with the games.
Our comprehensive Gears of War Timeline - Every game, film, book and comic ever made in the Gears of War Universe, in Chronological Order.
Est. reading time: 4 minutes
Yeah i know that JR takes place between GoW 2 and 3, I’m wondering how much of 2 is spoiled in the book.
Thanks for that timeline link through. It’ll be very helpful.

Actually, quite a bit of Gears 2 is spoiled. If you really care then you should hold off.
That being said, you should definitely read the next 3 books before playing Gears 3.
Damn. I kinda figured. Now what am I gonna read until Im done with the game? Lol
And have all those books you mentioned, so ill definitely be reading them.

finish gears 2 before you start Jacintos reminit
Im currently stuck on the big reaver chase near the end, so doesn’t look like I’ll be finishing Gears 2 at any point before 2045.

Keep trying. You’ll get there, and it will be worth the effort.
Are you THE Sean Koury? The one who read Aspho Fields?
It spoils the major, emotionally impacting moments throughout the campaign. Not just the ending.
If you’re still stuck on this, would you like tips? There are a few weird things about the design of that level which can trip people up.
