View author's profile

A new trailer for Gears of War: Judgment has broken cover today, focusing on the multiplayer facet of the game, and the various elements therein. There's a good four minutes of multiplayer gameplay footage to absorb too, with more colour commentary from Damon Baird.

In the vid you'll see some of the new multiplayer skins and the various characters, as well as the extensive armoury of weapons, the maps, game modes and rewards you can earn during battles. These include prizeboxes that you can crack open for bonus goodies, among other things.

Trust your guts and check out the latest multiplayer trailer below. Gears of War: Judgment is out on March 19th in North America and March 22nd in Europe. And if you haven't read it yet, be sure to give Dan's hands-on preview the once over.

I loved the other gears games, and this does look good, but for some reason I'm struggling to care.

They could of taken a new direction with the franchise instead of doing a CoD copy/paste job... Holding off on buying this until the summer drought I think. Will hopefully drop in price by then.

I like the idea behind the rewards system and the new vertical features, jumping off of ledges and breaking glass beneath other players feet. This trailer has made me really excited for this, looking forward to it.

really starting to hate the skyfull adverts that tke up the full page every time i watch a video

on topic, game is looking awsome but (no annex, koth or capture leader mentioned though?) it's also taken them way to long to come out with this info, release is ony a month away, i feel had they come out with this sooner they may have had the 1million + preorders 3 had rather than the 100k there on atm

The GamerTags in this video are fantastic.
I kind of prefer the direction this game is heading in with the bigger arsenals, customizable looks, map verticality.
Disappointing that Warzone/Execution and Capture The Leader have fallen by the wayside though.

I thought DBNO was removed? At 1:17 there's clearly a teammate bleeding out, being revived by a grenade...

Did they just rename the mechanic for some stupid reason?

Okay, I'm fine with mostly all of these changes since it's a spin-off/prequel if you will, but come on! Not playing as the Locust in multiplayer? Am I the only one thats gonna miss that? It's gonna be weird Gears killing Gears.....

@10 - It's still in the Overrun mode. I could care less, to be honest. I hate the fact that there's no split-screen couch co-op in this when there was for the other three games. That in itself would make me not buy this.

New grenades (Sticky, Beacon, Stim)... why are they in the prequel but not Gears 1-3? Surely the COG didn't deem then ineffective. And why no wind-up now? In the 14 years between this and Gears 1, did they forget how to toss grenades effectively?

And a sniper rifle where you don't have to reload after every shot? Why would the COG get rid of that?

Domination = Territories/Dominion from Halo and Domination from CoD. Nothing new here.

Classes in Overrun? I like the fact that every character has a certain ability now, instead of everyone being the exact same with different skins. I wish this was for all multiplayer modes.

Rewards... at least they aren't in-game kill streak or score streak rewards like CoD. Rewarding the best and the worst get worse.

I hate prequels. They put in new weapons and abilities with no explanation of where they went in the "sequels".

#11: You final line is exactly the reason why they chose not to have one team as Locust. People just prefer playing as COG. If they preferred playing as Locust then killing Gears wouldn't feel so weird would it? :p

This will be the first Gears game I don't get at release. They've removed too much of what made it Gears in the first place and I'm struggling to care about this game now. I'll get it later when it's down to $20.

"I hate prequels. They put in new weapons and abilities with no explanation of where they went in the "sequels"."

That shit drives me nuts too! The worst offender recently was Halo Reach. All the new stuff in that game just magically vanishes during the original trilogy and returns out of nowhere for 4...

Yes no locust.

And you people bitching they changed to much are stupid,cause if they didn't change shit you would be standing on the other side if the fence yelling "this is just gears 3.5".

There's no please you people is there?

Gameplay wise this looks like the best Gears yet. I'm not that hyped for it but I know I'll enjoy it when it comes out. My March is focused on Tomb Raider.

@31 - It's listed on as not having local couch co-op (split screen). I sure do hope they got their information wrong.

Hmm looks like EPIC is moving back a little more to the Unreal Tournament Series.

That's cool with me to an extent I loved the Unreal Games. But not if Gears suffers too much for it.

I don't think there is anything to be afraid of Gears isn't COD. If changes to the gameplay are made that receive negative feedback from the fanbase happen then they will change it back in the next game. One very important detail some of the more worried/concerned people here are overlooking is that there is something funny about the old "Co-developed" game thing is this is just like with Quake 4 and the last Wolfenstein game. Sure they said that ID and Raven Software co-developed those games but it was more like Raven did 90% of the developing and ID did the other 10% while supervising the project. And that is what is going on here aswell, sure I have heard the rumors that People Can Fly is developing the campaign and Epic is making the multiplayer. But I bet People Can Fly are doing both single and multiplayer while Epic supervises and decides the verdict of ideas, People Can Fly come up with an idea they go to Epic to get the green light Epic says yes or no. So essentially this is People Can Flys's Gears sometime down the road Epic will make their own Gears Spinoff/Prequel.

Looks great, not as inciting as previous gears games. The 2 major problems I have with the game in particular are no COG vs Locust any more? I'm not a fan of COG vs COG - It just looks weird.

The whole jumping from those heights in multiplayer, I'm sure are fun but it lacks a certain gritty reality in my eye. Im pretty sure if you jumped from that height you would have to bend your knees to land that fall, if you don't want to break your legs that is.

I don not convinced, but it does have some cool new elements to it swell to be fair - weapons, gear customisation look really good - Just don't believe the few tweaks warrant a whole new game is all.

Would have preferred a 5 part DLC on to GoW 3 that told this story.

The only game mode I'm sad about being missing is Guardian. This installment IMO could have also benefited from a CTF game mode as well, would have went well with the new vertical gameplay & arcade elements. Well there is always DLC to see the return of Guardian.
