Written Tuesday, March 12, 2013 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
Epic Games has revealed details of an inventive new character coming to Gears of War: Judgment multiplayer.
Called the “Epic Reaper,” the character is a gruesome looking fella with special abilities and physics making him extremely difficult to kill.
The twist comes with the fact that each week just one player will be chosen to control the Reaper, based on their contributions to the Gears of War community.
In addition to this the chosen player will also receive a set of custom Gears of War: Judgment dog tags.
Meanwhile, those players that are able to bring down this formidable enemy will be rewarded with the Reaper medal and custom weapon skin.
Epic employees will also have the Reaper skin available, so if you kill them, it will count towards the medal and skin.
You can nominate someone to be the Reaper now, by either posting on the official Epic forums or using the Twitter hastag #GearsReaper.
You can see an image of the Epic Reaper below. Gears of War: Judgment is out on March 19th in North America and March 22nd in Europe.
