Gears of War: Judgment

Gears of War: Judgment takes us back to years before the first Gears of War, and the early days of the war against the Locusts. Players are put into the combat boots of series protagonist Damon Baird, who's on trial for treason with his team, known as Kilo Squad. Along with a new story set in the Gears universe, a new exciting new feature Judgment brings to the series is a new mode called Overrun, introducing class-based multiplayer, a first for the series.

Check out Steve Butts' full preview here. Gears of War: Judgment is scheduled to arrive in 2013.

Steve Butts: The whole setup relies on the tried and true Gears formula. All the regular weapons, cover mechanics and defensive installations from the original game are still here, but players will also be limited in what they can do based on the class they choose. The scout, for instance, can get places other characters can't and can make use of long-range weapons. The engineer can repair friendly fortifications, drop down turrets, or get up close and personal with his shotgun. Medics can revive downed teammates or even drop down healing fields that can help keep you alive during a firefight. Soldiers - well, if you don't know what soldiers are good at, you're probably not even interested in a Gears of War game.
