Gears of War: Judgment
Gears of War: Judgment Specific March Date Revealed Alongside OverRun Gameplay Vid

View author's profile

Epic Games has pinned down the March 2013 release date for Gears of War: Judgment during Comic-Con, alongside a handful of new screens and a tutorial video giving you the lowdown on OverRun, the game's new class-based competitive multiplayer mode, with commentary from none other than Damon Baird himself.

In OverRun you'll defend targets as the COG and attack as the Locust, which is the basic nuts and bolts of the mode. To find out more about OverRun, check out the video below. Epic has also revealed the new 'Island' map, which takes you to an archipelago of islands off the coast of Halvo Bay where there's a supply and refuelling depot.

The islands are connected by a series of tunnels and bridges, and it's restricted territory unsuitable for civilians, but perfect for COG and Locust to blast the living crap out of one another. Take a look at the four new shots below, then look out for Gears of War: Judgment on March 19th, 2013.

This is shaping up to be an awesome installment in the Gears franchise.

Looks interesting. I often wonder if gears 3 would end up having a Horde vs Beast mode, not entirely sure how that'd work but OverRun may be something close!

I'm a tiny bit apprehensive about a different writer for the campaign. It'll be interesting to see what PCF do with it too. I know some people didn't like Bulletstorm but I thought it was awesome.

I know some people will say this is too soon, but I'm fairly certain a lot of the mechanics of this game were from the now defunct Kinect title EPIC were working on. That and I think this will be the last Unreal Engine 3 game they'll release. I'd be fairly confident the next gears game will be on UE4 and the next Xbox iteration.

Already got my level 400 and just unlocked the Embry Star onyx yesterday. Still enough time for seriously. Although I sincerely hope they make the next Seriously less of a ball ache.

I could not give the tiniest shit after the travesty of Gears 3 and the clusterfuck of bad decisions they made with it.

As for a different writer, it can only be a good thing. Traviss was a total train wreck.

As for the defensive fans, chances are you're either CoD New-Gen gamers or mentally inflexible CoG fanatics. Either way, Gears 3 was ruined by cut content turned into PDLC and a story that wasn't worth a nugget of shit.

Gameplay was great though, which is a plus.

Something about this just doesn't appeal to me. First and foremost, the recycled cast. I don't give a shit about what Baird was doing. I'm sure some do, but why wouldn't you take this opportunity to make a brand new character? Second, there's just been too much Gears. Retire the series for a bit, and bring Fortnite to consoles. I really liked Gears 3, but it got old for me pretty fast. Older than the previous games. Whether that's me or the series, I don't know.

I am shocked that anyone is hooked enough on the Gears of War storyline (lol) to have a debate about it or use words like "travesty" to describe it.

Baird and Cole are my two least favourite Gears of War mainstays by a fairly significant margin, so my interest in this has yet to be captured. Adding an assault game type isn't like to change that.

Hopefully the rest of the multiplayer u can get use different characters like onyx guard carmine and hoffman.
Overrun just looks like what beast mode should have been.
Hopefully the campaign will be good even with a new writer just by looking at videos and screenshots i would say 7/10

I have faith in PCF. I mean I liked Bulletstorm other than the dudebro dialog. It was funny for awhile but it got old fast.

i just hope they continue the gears tradition of bots

i dont have any interest in playing with an entire team of "Scout" class cause everyone wants to be a sniper and nobody actually takes the team objective in consideration

The scout grenade(wallhack) is exactly one of the reasons the new ghost recon Game looks good minus that.

Gears 3 was a disaster. After all the shady stunts Epic pulled I will never buy another Gears game by them. It was fun as hell but with all the locked content and lies I'm done.

This one just seems like a cash grab, I'm glad PCF is doing it and that they have a new writer but the story always was and will be shallow. No thank you.

@25 lol they screwed everything up in the 2nd game, the campaign lobby search was useless cause you had to mandate the exact chapter in a specific act to search for open lobbies which made finding a co-op impossible and there was no incentive to actually care about ranking up cause it didnt unlock anything other than cliched "reach 100(the max)" just to unlock a few DLC achievments, most of which were just stupid "play on each map once" with the ridiculous..."oh by the way u also have to reach 100" to unlock it, on every one.

only thing wrong with Gears 3 was the inability for anyone to be placed in a public horde match either ranked or custom with an open slot after someone quit. and since alot of ppl quit after just a few rounds it ruined the mode.

stuff.. I want Team Deathmatch, Execution, Guardian, Wingman, CTL, and all the other modes in this to otherwise I'm not buying it...

I enjoyed my first playthrough of gears. I enjoyed my couple playthroughs of gears 2. I got bored of gears 3 after the second chapter. It was almost the same game! Story and one liners seemed to get worse and the gameplay was the most tedius yet. No reason to believe this will be any different...

anybody else notice that the longshot didn't have only one bullet? i hope they don't decrease the power of it.

Which is also dumb because it's supposed to be a prequel with an advanced semi auto rifle? don't developers ever think of these things when making a prequel?

Gear's of war is just the same thing everytime.. The only reason this is worth playing is for horde mode. their just going to put the same achievements for beating the acts and chapters then beating it on insane.. Where's the fun?

I think the abilities are a cool addition to the franchise. Yes, it looks largely the same but what did you expect? It's already one of the best looking games.

Not too happy that they are making a new gears because it was perfect to leave off on Gears 3 and have that trilogy BUT I do love my Gears series and this does look like it can come through. Overrun does look fun, I just hope they don't mess up campaign or anything because it is before the lambent and all that.
