Microsoft has revealed first details about the next Gears of War title, Judgment.
Set years before the events of the previous Gears of War trilogy, Judgment centers on Kilo Squad, a troop of soldiers led by Damon Baird and Augustus “The Cole Train” Cole. They are joined by newcomers to the Gears series, Sofia Hendricks and Garron Paduk, as they attempt to save the besieged city of Halvo Bay from a terrifying new enemy.
Playable cooperatively with up to three friends on Xbox LIVE (four players total), Gears of War: Judgment depicts the planet Sera on the brink of annihilation by an unstoppable new Locust menace.
The game introduces a new Smart Spawn System [S3] for both campaign and multiplayer action. This new system ensures that each encounter is unique and new because types, timing and locations of enemies change with each new encounter.
Judgment also promises brand-new multiplayer experiences, including OverRun, a class-based competitive mode that pits Locust and COG soldiers in a head-to-head battle.
Developed by People can Fly with coordination from Epic Games, Gears of War: Judgment will launch worldwide in early 2013 for Xbox 360.
