Gears of War: Judgment
Free Gears of War: Judgment DLC Coming Next Week
Written By
View author's profile

There’s some new free downloadable content coming to Gears of War: Judgement next week, in the form of a new multiplayer map called Dreadnought.

Dreadnought is set on the CNV Pomeroy, a ship used to transport captured Locust Beserkers following Emergence Day. But... "Little did they know that the Locust had waterborne beasts from the underground rivers of the Hollow, or that the Locust soldiers would use them so relentlessly to rescue the captured Berserkers," says the blurb. 

"The Pomeroy was corralled into a narrow channel and forced ashore, where the Locust sent a mass of troops to assault and overwhelm the beached vessel."

Free thanks to Epic’s sponsorship deal with Maxim, you can download Dreadnought from May 15th.

free stuff is always good, but all these free maps should have been included with the retail game rather then just having the 4 maps.

That's a scary thought, being on a ship with fucking crazy Berskers.
Imagine if they broke out while the ship was in motion, without the Locust assistance...

They better release MORE free maps, cause as #6 said, 4 is really too little for a title in the GoW series.

@4 Epic said yesterday in their stream that the maps name was changed. So this map is actually the Capital we were supposed to get.

The likelihood of that happening is pretty low. Especially considering the GOW1 discovery channel 'sponsored' maps are still free :L

@7 Basically what @16 said.. Once you download it you own it forever so might as well (even if you just cancel right away to not have it on the HDD).

For example the first map pack for Brink, I downloaded it while it was free and now it costs MSP but I own it.

@20 Well it's happening

"On May 15, the Dreadnought OverRun map for Gears of War: Judgment will be free for a limited time. On May 29, two weeks following its release, Dreadnought will cost $2 (160 Microsoft Points). If you're still playing Judgment's excellent multiplayer, be sure to grab Dreadnought as soon as possible."

@Lee going to have to update this article.

@24 Do the revives in Survival as you can keep replaying the same map and boost BOOSHKA! in private* with 2 other players, you're welcome.

*Yes BOOSHKA! can be done in private dispite what the description says.

There's only one thing that would make this DLC better, and that's more achievements that are "impossible" to get. Then the people who've been crying about the last new achievements will really be pissed. Imagine having to win or be good at a game for a achievement. Wouldn't that blow?

Captured Berserkers??? Holy shit they are screwing the pooch on Gears canon in Judgment so badly. They should just finish this game's cycle, put it out of its horrid misery, and move on like it never existed. Let it be that one legendary game in an extraordinary series that was so horrible that its developers just stopped supporting it. And people who become fans 5-10 years down the line will pay $150 on eBay for Judgment just to see how bad it was, because it'll be the only Gears game you won't be able to find sold by Microsoft anymore. And they'll laugh and be like "what an interesting look at a horrible turn of events for Gears....welp, time to go back to the stellar Gears 5!"

I seriously just...I can't stand so many things about this game. I would have preferred Gears to die gracefully with Gears 3.

That comment about GOWJ "excellent" Multiplayer was so LAUGHABLE !!! I am probably one of the biggest GOW fan, and i been religiously playing since 2006 but this particular game... i can't. Everytime i die because of the frag fest it became make me cringe so badly... Anyway free is free, ill take it, but i don't care much to be honest... especially since its overun...

@33 there's more people playing gears 3 team deathmatch then Gowj team deathmatch. Gowj multiplayer is pretty horrible. Its red cog vs blue cog which says to me how lazy the people are who made this. The maps are unorganized and random. Remember how in all the other gears games everyone ran as fast as they could to a map weapon then fought for that weapon? Idk wtf im talking about really but GOWJ is the most dissapointing game in the series to date.

I think they should just abandon disc versions of Gears, and maybe instead make an extremely well done, polished multiplayer only arcade game - somewhat like Monday Night Combat or Team Fortress 2, just with the Gears weapons/characters/atmosphere. It would go back to locust vs cogs and would share more similar characteristics to the Gears 1 & 2 multiplayer modes. All new maps obviously; Epic used to make AMAZING maps back on the original 2 games which to this day remain two of my all time favourites.

It would feauture in-game unlockables for new weapons and skins and camos and such instead of shitty micro transactions, and a nicely done 400 point achievement list with a balance between easy basic achievements and some more difficult ones to obtain - but my no means impossible to complete. Of course there would be a leveling system. They should make it during the events at the very beginning of the pendulum wars or E-day, so theres at least a reason for fighting, and it would give them an excuse to go back even further than judgment, and get rid of some of the abysmal weapons that have been added to the series in order to make it a more classic style of gameplay.

Add in a base defense mechanism to the multiplayer and make "attack & defend" (they'd use a better name) a separate mode to regular, classic TDM.
As mentioned earlier the attack & defend mode would play like MNC or something.

Retail this for 1200 and it'd be a steal, and something I would purchase on the spot! I think this is a better route for the company to take honestly. N more Gears stories, they're getting boring.

I might be completely dreaming here but for me anyway this would be so EPIC!

this game has been the biggest let down of the year so far for me the fact that the game only came with 4 tdm maps and 4 overrun maps is a joke i hate the way they have split up the maps so you can only play certain maps on certain gamemodes and also i personally think that this new overrun mode is a shocking gamemode and is nothing like gears of war they should have kept with what has worked in the franchise instead of changing so much to quickly

Just me seeing the "gratis multiplayer map" under
"Free Gears of War: Judgment DLC Coming Next Week
Friday, May 10th - 11:14"?

Gratis = free in swedish, so that's why I'm wondering.

Really? Well, that's nice of Epic then. Get paid by Maxim to basically advertise to the people who have already spent money on the game, then charge some of them anyway.
Then again, hardly surprising. I jumped ship from EPIC after the weapon skins BS; which, people evidently love, considering it returned.
