Ignite the Resistance with Gears of War: Judgment
Before the rise of the Lambent, the sinking of Jacinto or the detonation of the Lightmass bomb, there was Emergence Day - the day the Locust Horde burst from the ground and set Sera on a path toward near-annihilation.
Gears of War: Judgement has had its release date revealed - launching March 19, 2013, the newest installment in the Gears franchise brings players back to the horrors of E-day, before the events of the Gears trilogy, for the most intense Gears game yet.
An Xbox 360-exclusive title from Epic Games and People Can Fly, Gears of War: Judgement delivers a gripping campaign featuring new characters, weapons and enemies, as well as new multiplayer experiences like OverRun and an all-new class-based mode that combines elements of Horde and Beast modes pioneered in previous Gears games.
Master the Basics of OverRun and Charge into Action on “Island”
Fans can get ahead of the game and learn the essentials of OverRun’s thrilling new class-based competitive gameplay through the OverRun tutorial video released today. Narrated by Damon Baird, players will see the required skills they need to defend as a COG or attack as a Locust and engage in adrenaline-pumping skirmishes unlike anything Gears fans have experienced before.
Following the debut of OverRun at E3 2012 on the map Rooftops, today the all-new map Island was revealed.
ISLAND – Island takes place on an archipelago of islands off the coast of Halvo Bay, which serves as a supply and refuelling depot that feeds the larger military machine along the coast. The individual islands are connected by a series of bridges and tunnels, forming a network of unknown size and security. This is restricted territory, and civilians are not permitted on, or even near, any of the islands.
