Microsoft confirmed Gears of War: Judgment at today’s E3 press conference. The video shows the character Damon Baird fighting for his life against a group of Locusts with his trusty Lancer weapon. Gears of War: Judgment is to release in 2013.
“Gears of War: Judgment” delivers the most intense and challenging “Gears of War” game yet, with a campaign that takes you back to the immediate aftermath of Emergence Day—the defining event of the “Gears of War” universe—for the very first time and tests your mettle in highly competitive new multiplayer modes.
Set years before the events of the previous “Gears of War” trilogy, “Judgment” centers on Kilo Squad, a troop of soldiers led by Damon Baird and Augustus “The Cole Train” Cole. They are joined by newcomers to the “Gears” series, Sofia Hendricks and Garron Paduk, as they attempt to save the besieged city of Halvo Bay from a terrifying new enemy.
Playable cooperatively with up to three friends on Xbox LIVE (four players total), “Gears of War: Judgment” depicts the planet Sera on the brink of annihilation by an unstoppable new Locust menace, giving you a new vantage point into one of the richest and most acclaimed sagas in gaming.
Marking a first for the “Gears” franchise, “Gears of War: Judgment” features a “Mission Declassification” system that lets players experience more challenging gameplay scenarios and achievements by uncovering critical information during the course of the campaign.
Available only on Xbox 360, the Gears of War series has sold more than 18 million copies worldwide. Gears of War: Judgment will launch worldwide in early 2013. For more information, visit the official Microsoft website.
