Gears of War: Judgment
E3 2012: Gears of War: Judgment Multiplayer and Campaign Detailed
Written By
View author's profile

Gears of War: Judgment will feature class based multiplayer and a campaign set 15 years before the events of Gears of War.

That’s according to Game Informer, the latest issue of which carries an exclusive reveal for the People Can Fly developed project.

Playing multiplayer as a COG you can either be an engineer, a soldier, a medic or a scout. Each of the classes is a speciality of one of the characters in the game.

Damon Baird is the engineer, carrying a Gnasher and Blowtorch. He can deploy sentry turrets and repair damaged defences. Augustus Cole, meanwhile, is the soldier, armed with a Lancer and a Boomshot. He can deploy ammo crates and can top up the engineer's Blowtorch ammo. 

The other characters are Sophia Hendricks and Garron Paduk. Hendricks is the medic, armed with a Lancer and a Snub pistol, as well as Stim Gas grenades. Her ability is to use grenades to revive downed team mates. Paduk, meanwhile, is the scout, armed with a Longshot and a Snub pistol, as well as a beacon grenade.

The Locusts carry different skills and abilities.  The Wretch can leap over hazards, the Ticker can eat defences and grenades, the Kantus can heal teammates, the Grenadier specialises in grenades, the Bloodmount specialises in melee, the Mauler carries a shield, the Serapede provides ranged support and the Corpser can move underground.

There's also a new mode called Overrun, inspired by Team Fortress and DOTA. You get two timed five-vs-five rounds with one side defending objectives. In the case of the COG, you have to protect two sealed Emergence Holes and a Hammer of Dawn beacon. 

Unsurprisingly, character progression and levelling up plays a part.

The campaign itself is set 15 years before Gears of War, following Baird and his squad as they stand trial for transgression against the Coalition of Governments. apparently, the squad are accused of desertion, cowardice, trespassing, theft of military tech and treason by COG leader Colonel Loomis.

The setting is Halvo Bay. It’s the home of the Onyx Guard Academy and is inspired by San Francisco.

Expect more during Microsoft’s E3 presser. Which is soon! Really soon!

Team Fortress 2, Battlefield.... I'm sure there's more.

Not a bad idea, class based combat, promotes team-based play which always more enjoyable and adds variety to Gears MP which has always been just "who's faster with the Gnasher".

Are they trying to be like ghost recon future soldier and battlefield? Why can't they leave the game the way it is. Soon all the top mp shooter will feel the same. Nothing unique anymore.

Go figure, they add more depth and diversity to multiplayer and people complain. I'll be keeping an eye on this.

@10 - How many times have you needed a revive but were too far away or too much in a red zone to be picked up? I can see that being pretty useful.

Its not that they're adding more depth (well it is), its because they are changing the tried and true game mechanics, if it isnt broke don't fix it.

I'm not saying it will be bad, but its changing the series into something it isnt.

Well it might not be Gears in the true sense but honestly for me Gears 3 is just about all I wanted from a Gears game. The campaign is awesome, co-op campaigns a blast, Arcade mode works like a charm, VS is very good, best of the series, the story came to a real good end and of course Horde mode remains the best out there.

So honestly I couldn't think up too much to improve on that. But I do love the Gears universe so I for one can see this being a great diversion. I just don't get people getting upset for going new directions with a franchise. If this was Gears 4, sure. But just like Metal Gear Rising, I see this as a whole seperate thing from Gears. Just in a universe I know and love. I for one can't wait to see it on E3

@20 I'm sure you'll still be able to play all the original modes like Wingman and such. I could be wrong but all this sounds like so far is just adding some extra meat. I would understand the hate if they just threw away all of that and just gave us this, THEN we could complain.

Like when in Halo: Reach they added armor abilities for example.

Funny how everyone blatantly ignores the fact that this is an spin-off by another dev (the bulletstorm devs) and just continue to rage about the destruction of a franchise.
Also, if it was a game in the main franchise, then everyone'd probably moan about how lacking it is in originality, comparing it to CoD and their lack of innovation.

I guess I'm getting old... experiencing the harsh world of reading first and ranting afterwards, unlike the sheer joy of being a diaperboy crying all over the comments section without actually reading the article.

Spin off or not, it still has the Gears of war name.

I wouldnt compare it to COD at all because while nether games really change anything with each release Gears gamesget better at what they do, while COD just stays the same.

I can see a class based system working well, but Gears is a class system game, its a straight up squad shooter.

With the success of Gears of War, I'm glad they are taking a new direction. If I wanted to revisit the beautiful times of Gears 1 or Gears 3 I can just fire up the multiplayer and enjoy it once again, we don't need the game to be identical again to enjoy it.

Here's to hoping People Can Fly can succeed again :D

im looking forward to seeing how this will work and the Single Player sounds cool too, always wanted to know more about the years after E-Day, and this should fill in some holes.

i suscpect there will be two more prequals to tie it all together.

I don't see a problem with this being different. If I want to play the old Gears, I play 1-3, its not like these games loose the ability to play online once this is out.
I think this is the perfect spot in the Gears timeline to overhaul the series. Better than oversaturating the market with games, that are more or less the same.
But I think they should have waited longer to bring out the next game. Gears 3 has only been out for like 8 month and they already announced a sequel. I'd rather had it that they stretched the DLCs for Gears3 out over like 2 years, than announce a sequel.

I haven't played Gears multiplayer since Gears 2. I remember it had so many issues during the first few months I stopped playing. I've never been very good at it at all anyway. I will most likely give this a try though, because I always play a support class in MP, I have never been a very good soldier. A medic or engineer is far more suited to my abilities. :)

Whats the point in starting with power weapons... That means there wont be any weapon pickups... which pretty much strips apart what gears MP is. Looks like there wont be any more mad dashes for the great guns anymore, and will involve a lot of snipers just camping from spawn. Think, PeopleCanFly, THINK!

As a die hard gears fanboy this certainly sounds concerning. IF this is just an extra mode like beast was in GOW3, I'm all for it. A nice new breath of fresh air into the series. However, if this replaces the tried and tested MP modes then I will NOT buy!! It would completely ruin gears that I know and love. What I don't understand is why the hell they got the job in the first place?? Oh lets give our award winning series to the company that made bulletstorm!! f'ing bulletstorm!! Yeah cause they are the ones who will improve gears? HA! EPIC really do a lot of dumb shit IMHO. Cheers.

At first people thought that Objective types would enourage team-play, but clearly the only real way to to adapt to Class-based.

I'm sure the guys at Epic/People Can Fly will still have all of the regular gametypes. I think it'd be cool to try out a free-for-all, on top of the standard 5v5

@33 It is not a spin-off it is a prequel. All of you people complaining about the changes and saying you are not going to buy it now, if you are too ignorant to even give the game chance then go continue to play Gears 3 or 2 or 1 whichever you prefer. There have been 3 Gears games now and while part 2 and 3 have added new weapons, modes and executions to keep them game fresh. Most matches devolve into the same thing, Shotgun battles. I love all the Gears games, part 1 was the reason I bought a 360 and 3 is my favorite of them all but I have grown tired of the constant shotgun battles. Yeah people use grenades and the other pick up weapons but mostly it is a shotgun showdown.

I am excited for the new direction they are taking this. It will keep the battles fresh and it promotes teamwork. Gears of War is supposed to be a squad based tactical shooter not a run and gun shotgun battle arena. Funny how people bitch about the COD franchise going the "if it ain't broke don't fix it route" because they hate the game but a game they love is being changed so it does not fall under that the same category and they still bitch. If you guys are still loving the way Gears is played, still loving the fact that shotguns are the most used weapons in the game and there is hardly any difference in the way matches are played, then you stick with the previous Gears games and ignore this one but you have no right to bash COD or the people who play them. Because now you know how some of the diehard fans of COD would feel if the games were to see a change as big as this.

Thing is about the changes for this game is it will promote a different more strategic play style instead of the run and gun style that many have been using in the Gears series.

The campaign will be good no doubt and ill play it for that but the multiplayer sounds like they are trying to much to be like BF3. Medics? Engineers? Scouts/Recon? should have kept the multiplayer the same in my opinion. If it aint broke dont fix it.

Whenever you pass a project on to another company, you are always at risk of a failed experiment. This may be good for Gears; it may be bad. EPIC can absolve themselves of responsibility for it if it does go tits up, though.

Personally, I think it could be good. I liked the brief time I had with Bulletstorm and I believe that PCF can do a good job with an already established, popular franchise. As long as they don't stray too far into "over-experimentation" territory, they could come out smelling of roses.

Sounds like Brink, which technically speaking should have been good but I don't know about you but I hated it, hopefully I wont hate this.

I have to say I am actually pretty tired of Gears and Gears MP. I am at 1400 gs and just can't bring myself to keep grinding. I just don't see another Gears game in my future. I have started drifting back to games focused solely on single player and maybe a little co-op splitscreen/online(looking at Borderlands 2). The whole PvP mp has become tedious.

I tend to agree PvP just seems so boring these days, for me its been ruined by people using cheap tactics and exploits as well as children screaming.

Anyway after reading the article multiple times to try and figure out how it would work, I'm thinking it sounds alot like beast mode from gears 3, but with the COG been been players instead of AI, which if done properly could be freaking sweet as a nut.

IMO all multiplayers are just the same, its a team defeating another, dont matter if its gears or COD or Halo or battlefield the concept is still exactly the same in whatever genre. people are complaining how class base multiplayer will ruin gears, it worked well in mass effect 3 and that was the first time they introduced multiplayer and it went down well with the fans. they never said this new class base mode is going to be VS thats what most people here seem to think. it could be vs, horde or beast, people just need to see what happens before they rant how new things will ruin a game. i meen halo have new people working on that game and the halo fans were like 'oh this is going to be shit and they will ruin everything' now its coming closer to halo 4 release everyones licking its ass again. so if people dont like change then stick to what u know but if ur like me and u want change then we will wait and see what its like.

So, if you pick Cole (or the soldier class), you actually spawn with a boomshot?

lol, balance is already out the window.

Anyone else see a potential problem with Cole having a Boomshot AND the ability to replenish ammo?

It sounds boring to me. And funny how the multiplayer is talked about first and has more info than the campaign... ¬_¬

Class-based: boo. Story, more time playing as Locust, and seeing a new side to some of our protagonists: Awesome.

They forgot to mention the class based stuff is for only the new game mode they have. People on the comments are acting like its the actual multiplayer when it isn't

This sounds like dlc moreso than a full fledged game. I can't help but feel a little skeptical as to how well it will be executed.

"Damon Baird is the engineer, carrying a Gnasher"

So 95% of people in this game will play as Baird then, and anyone playing as Cole or Hendricks will be called cheap for having the audacity to use a rifle.

When I read about the health grenades, all I could think about was the Light Grenade from Mom And Dad Save The World.

I think what people aren't getting is that the TRILOGY is over. There is nothing they can do now with the ending of the third. The trilogy is over so it's time for spin-offs. They aren't going to be ANYTHING like the trilogy, they won't be as good or as well thought out. It's how you have to take it. All spin-offs are like this.

Dead Space is doing it too. After Dead Space 3, they want to make a Dead Space FPS, Dead Space 2D shooter, Dead Space like Uncharted. Just gotta put up with it :)

I may be wrong, but after reading Game Informer I think the class thing is only limited to the new mode, which sounded similar to beast mode, except the locust and COGS are both player controlled. It would be stupid if you could only be an engineer if you picked Baird in normal multiplayer.

Okey, first of all.
Why do people bitching about Judgement and it's free for all gamemode, and saying it's not Gears? :O
I think that, this is a great change for the Gears franchise.
And if you think that it's soo bad, why don't you go back and play Gears 1 or 2? Or simply consider to not buy Judgement? Just saying :)
Persionaly, i can't wait for Gears of war Judgement, i have been a Gearhead sence the first Gears and i am not quiting to play Gears just because of some changes in the game.
Sure i understand that Judgement is not going to please everebody, but i think that you should bee happy that EPIC and everybody else is creating this for the fans.
Bee happy for Judgement, instead of being unhappy for Judgement.
Vector out.
