Gears of War: Judgment's Lost Relics DLC is Out Tomorrow, Watch the Flythrough Vids Here

Gears of War: Judgment’s next DLC, Lost Relics, hits tomorrow for VIP members.

Including four new multiplayer maps - Checkout, Lost City, Museum and Ward -  as well as new weapon and armour skins, the DLC is available to non-VIP members from next Tuesday, June 25th.

Below you’ll find a flythrough vids for each map, with commentary, as well as a written description.

[via Epic, cheers Maxime]

CHECKOUT – Checkout’s combat takes place in the carcass of an abandoned superstore.  The shop owners tried to move inventory with a closeout sale in the weeks leading up to the HOD evacuations, but ultimately had to walk away and leave everything to time and history.  The intense close-quarters combat of the store aisles makes every decision important.  Weapon selection is key, cover is essential to survival and every move has an impact.  When facing your enemy, remember what the sign says: “Everything must go.”

LOST CITY – The ruins of this ancient city were once a major archeological find .  Despite sitting empty for centuries, the hydro-powered aqueduct and canal systems were still in working order and proved that the ancient Serans had a remarkable grasp of engineering and architecture.  Like so many projects, excavation was abruptly halted when the Locust emerged and changed the face of the planet.  Now every Seran city sits as empty and lost as this one.

MUSEUM – Situated on the bay just outside the city capitol, The Ilima Museum of Natural History features an array of permanent exhibits, special programs, and educational opportunities for visitors of all ages.  With over a million artifacts and specimens in our collection, you can explore the wonders of the natural world at your own pace, or take part in one of our special hands-on workshops. Tickets are on sale now for our latest special showing: The Ages of Seran Military Might.  Get up close and personal with ancient swords of mystical power and see some of the first working mechanical weaponry of our storied past.

WARD – The battle for Halvo Bay was fought on many fronts simultaneously.  While most areas of the city fell quickly, a few sections actually had time to mount a defense and fortify against the incoming Horde.  Some were even able to push the Locust forces back and regain some ground before all was lost.  This Overrun map features one such area where the battle was small but intense, and the dedicated forces of the COG army tried to hold off wave after wave of invading forces with little in the way of reinforcements.  They pushed the Locust back several blocks before resistance increased and ultimately they found themselves in a fierce tug of war with little hope of success.

"The 'Surprise' achievement can now be unlocked on dedicated servers."

Is that the one? MyRifleIsBroken said "all the last dlc's achievements."

I only play this game once a week to get another event towards Sybarite. Thankfully the new achievements can be done in private except the Gold skin stuff. Just get the achievements done ASAP and put the game back on my shelf to enjoy much better games... Oh Epic... if you make another Gears game, please at least try.

it saddens me to say I just can't get excited for this. I've got the game and season pass, loved the campaign but never had the urge to replay it yet and other than a little fun with overrun and survival can't get into the mp at all. These maps don't look terrible but just very bland and unoriginal

Haha, they didn't change anything in Checkout, not even the colors. And people still think that EPIC doesn't recycle material and over charge people.

@Lee Bradly, do you have any info about the recent Yahoo News article that said apparently theres still several other DLC being created by EPIC?

im assuming that interview was taken within the last week so its not counting just this Lost Relics as being "several more"

"epic games" are bigger money whores than microsoft. making 1/5 of the skins available, the rest have to be bought with fucking microsoft points, only 4 maps at release and making it take stupidly long to level up without quadruple xp

#29 i understand completely what ur saying, BUT lost relics and master at arms r both 1000ms and the season pass was 1600ms so its not a bad saving especialy if theres more 2 come, like most other hardcore gears fans im dissapointed with the game but like i said 4 people like myself who doesnt have much money i'll take any saving i can get

Play it only once a week for the heck of it.
I have the pass & still have not played the last DLC Map because it never comes up on multi player, No-one has it I guess! lol
Graphics on this Game is by far the worst of any Gears Game!
DLC is by far the worst of any previous Gears Game!
It is an ARCADE game at best. The Campaign sucked as well!!!
Shameful of Epic & People Can Fly for putting this recycled garbage together!!!
The end of Gears Of War translates to the End of Xbox for me!
Because Halo sucks! ;)

@34 if bungie would have never created the halo series the original Xbox would have probably been a huge failure. The 360 probly wouldn't exist. The gears of war series and its stupid spin off wouldn't be here. Anyway what im trying to say is halo doesn't suck. You suck sir. You suck eggs.
