Gears of War: Judgment
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.2
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.
- A Riveting Campaign
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.
- Faster and More Intense Combat
Gears of War: Judgment delivers a riveting gameplay experience that gets back to basics, captures the true essence of Gears combat and introduces a new style of combat that’s faster-paced and more action-packed than ever before.
Gears of War: Judgment introduces a new Smart Spawn System [S3] for both campaign and multiplayer action. This new system ensures that each encounter is unique and new because types, timing and locations of enemies change with each new encounter.
- Explosive New Multiplayer Experiences
Gears of War: Judgment introduces brand-new multiplayer experiences, including OverRun, a thrilling new class-based competitive mode that pits Locust and COG soldiers in a head-to-head battle unlike anything Gears fans have experienced yet.
An objective-oriented mode that lets five-player teams alternate between playing as Locusts and COG soldiers, OverRun marks the first time that a class-based, competitive multiplayer experience has been introduced in the Gears of War series and amps up the addictive gameplay with a deep player progression system layered on top of the experience.
Additional game modes will be announced at a later time.
