Gears of War: Judgment to Get Free DLC Courtesy of Maxim

Gears of War: Judgment will be receiving some free DLC shortly after its launch this March, thanks to a sponsorship deal with men's magazine, Maxim. As detailed by the mag on its official site, the content will add a new map called Haven, and the Execution mode for free.
Here's the details:
- Haven: Formerly a tropical oasis, this ancient monastery in the Azura mountains is now a frozen wasteland, thanks to the tectonic shifts on Planet Sera. Featuring an asymmetrical circular layout, the map is a guaranteed blast - all paths lead back to the center, so no matter which route you take, you're going to be embroiled in a fast-paced, hectic battle.
- Execution Mode: In Execution Mode, the objective of each team is to kill all members of the enemy team before the time limit runs out. The catch? Unless hit with a one-shot kill weapon like the Booshka, players go into a "Down But Not Out" state and will revive at the end of the bleed-out timer instead of dying. To finish the job, perform an Execution on a downed enemy.
You'll be able to get your mitts on the free Maxim DLC for Gears of War: Judgment from April 2nd. The game itself meanwhile is out on March 19th in North America and March 22nd in Europe, with a VIP Season Pass offering six multiplayer maps, two new modes, permanent double XP boost and various skins for 1600 MSP.
Look out for a new Gears of War: Judgment hands-on preview next week.
