Along with these four fresh screenshots
, Epic Games
announced that Gears of War: Judgment
, developed exclusively for Xbox 360 by Epic Games and People Can Fly
, will be launched on March 19th, 2013. This is a new Gears of War
game that takes you back before events of the original Gears of War trilogy to the immediate aftermath of Emergence Day - the defining event of the Gears of War universe.
Gears of War: Judgment features OverRun, an all-new class-based mode that combines elements of the Horde and Beast modes pioneered in previous Gears of War games. You can learn the essentials of OverRun by watching a new tutorial video 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.
We also have a video showcasing the all-new "Island" map. Island takes place on an archipelago of islands off the coast of Halvo Bay, which serves as a supply and re-fuelling 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.
