Microsoft and Epic Games have released a new trailer for Gears of War 3 that highlights all the new features of Horde Mode 2.0. It seems Epic is going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure the latest version of Horde is the most robust yet. Now you can build fortifications, plop down target dummies and defend your stronghold with massive turrets and mechs.

The key to Horde Mode 2.0 is money. For every kill you are rewarded cash, which can be spent on upgrading your team's stronghold and buying new weapons. The below video gives you a rundown on all of this — explaining exactly how upgrades to your fort work and how you can get yourself behind the wheel of the coveted Silverback mech.
