Gears of War Judgment Release Date Announced

Today at Comic Con during the Gears of War panel it was announced that Gears of War: Judgment is coming on March 19, 2013.

Gears of War: Judgment - IslandBefore the rise of the Lambent, the sinking of Jacinto or the detonation of the Lightmass bomb, there was Emergence Day – when the Locust horde burst from the ground and set Sera on a path toward near annihilation. Gears of War: Judgment brings players back to the terrifying aftermath of E-Day, before the events of the Gears trilogy, for the most intense and challenging Gears game yet.

Get ahead of the game and learn the essentials of OverRun’s new class-based competitive gameplay through the OverRun tutorial video released today. Narrated by Damon Baird, players will see the required skills they need to defend as a COG or attack as a Locust.

Written by Tom Bissell (journalist and author of “Extra Lives”) and Rob Auten, Gears of War: Judgment follows Kilo Squad, led by fan-favorite characters Damon Baird and Augustus “The Cole Train” Cole, as they defy orders and attempt to rescue the city of Halvo Bay from destruction at the hands of the Locust onslaught.

Also today, the all-new “Island” map was revealed.

Gears of War: Judgment - IslandIsland takes place on an archipelago of islands off the coast of Halvo Bay, which serves as a supply and refueling depot that feeds the larger military machine along the coast.  The individual islands are connected by a series of bridges and tunnels, forming a network of unknown size and security.  This is restricted territory, and civilians are not permitted on, or even near, any of the islands.

“Gears of War 3” Now Available for $29.99 (U.S.)

For those who missed out on playing the highest rated shooter of 2011*, “Gears of War 3” is now available for only $29.99 (U.S.) at participating retailers and Games on Demand through the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

      Is Horde going to be on this game or not?

      • xxtubbyxchanxx

        There’s a new mode called OverRun where you can fight five vs. five as locust or cog, and cogs will have a preset class and a special ability for their class.

        Also just look at the video posted on this page

        That’s all I wanna know

      I’m still wondering if this is gonna be a full dvd game or just DLC for GOW3…

      • felipe uribe

        is a game apart! is not a DLC.

      • Likeaboss

        full game

    • Doffe

      The first picture of the kryll coming up from the ground doesn´t make any sense! They can only be out in the dark, I really hope they´ll fix this “plot hole”.

      • GOW

         if you played raams shadow then you could see how they can come out in daylight

    • xxtubbyxchanxx

      Haha, they better not change the release date like they did with Gears of War 3, but I will admit, that was a smart thing to do. Still, this game gonna rock! 

    • Leyva_88

      Please don’t change the sniper rile into a semi-automatic  on Versus mode.  It would be complete BS. Just keep it on Overrun or something. Everyone would try to grab the damn rifle and some might even be A-holes about it and get in the way instead of killing the opposing team.

         u got that right

    • felipe uribe

      And going out a beta for Gears of War Judgment?

    • Gunner

      Looks like a lot of fun, but I can’t say I agree with it being its own full priced title, its obviously (telling by the graphics and gameplay) a port of Gears 3, using Unreal engine 3. The game-play all looks the same, I fear this will be the next Halo ODST. :/ That being said.. If there’s a PC version made with Unreal Engine 4 count me in for a pre order!

    • chililloneitor3000

      yo no entiendo? se supone que casi no deberia de haber tegnologia y hay mas tegnologia que en gears 3

      • https://twitter.com/erudagrian Erudagrian

        Al parecer a Epic se le estan yendo las ventas contra los de Tom Clancy Ghost Reacon Future Soldier, porque hasta copiarán las categorías de personajes o tipo de “soldado”. Es tecnología amigo, no tegnología … por favor

    • https://twitter.com/erudagrian Erudagrian

      Gears of war is losing its essence, know with the types of character, as Ghost Reacon Future Soldier.

    • Luis-8123

      mas armas y mas movimientos claro man no avia cris de nada todo estava nuevo por eso mejores armas falta algo como dos pistolas en cada mano nuevos locus

    • Lucnerp

      I wonder why epic no longer cares about gears 3 all they do is give new playlist now and a few skins that  they take away theres so many flash back maps I was hoping to see they dont even have to be redone but as a fan that has been playing since gears one sorta disappointed theres no more dlc

    • Jmhurley96

      Gears of war judgement is going to be like the same crap as gears 3…lame connection, gnasher shotgun taking about 2-3 bullets to down the enemy and then another to kill’em which is ridiculous, and then hit boxes. No way I’m getting this game epic just doesn’t do a good job at pleasing customers. Wasted bout $30 on a stupid season pass which I will never get my refund on.

      • Drizzydrake28

        maybe u just suck at the game

      • Mclovin7487

        Dude shut up you just suck ! Gears of war judgment it’s going to be much more better . It’s not only going to be over run! It’s more thing more weapons more …..
        So shut up and go handle you little baby issue somewhere eles you gay cod player !

    • GowGodz

      As Usual We Have A Reject Who Thinks Gears Sucks, REALITY CHECK!, You Just Plain Suck.. Epic Does Do A Good Job If Not Outstanding Job. And For All Of Those Who Are Wondering I Am Talking To Jmhurley96.. Jm Just Go To Cod And Stop Playing Gow, We Don’t Need Another Waste Full Meat Sack Talking Sh** About An Amazing Franchise.. #GetBoddied..

    • Alex Page

      Looks like an addon for GoW3. No graphical updates, just a new game mode. This is the kind of DLC i wanted for GoW3, not crappy recycled maps from GoW2/1.

    • Dom

      Cant wait to see the trailers on TV XD

    • https://twitter.com/quaidrayn Denis Ryan

      Isn’t that John DiMaggio doing the narration in the walk-through? It certainly sounds a lot more like Marcus than Baird. It just doesn’t sound like the wise-cracking be-goggled mechanic I know and love.

    • Mclovin7487

      Everybody shut up that’s below me execpt for the people who like gears of war . Cause gears of war judgment is going to have everything that gears 3 has but more weapons more game types more maps more characters and many more so everybody stop complaining ! Gears of war judgment is going to be great . Epic is trying so hard to please people ok so give them a break . Gears has been the best game ever ! If you can’t get a kill than that means you suck stop blaming the game .

      • Ek EnVy

        Well said

    • Al

      Yep, I agree, it’s pretty cool and it looks like a Gears 3 DLC. I remember myself together with others coming up with this same idea when Gears 3 was being released… Pity they don’t give credits to who offered the idea.

    • Starwolf1001

      let’s hope the Mayans were wrong and the world doesn’t end in December otherwise we never get to play it :(

      • Jewhater

        Actually if the world was going to end it would have ended months ago because the Mayans didn’t apply the leap year into the factor :)

    • https://twitter.com/Gerard38 Gerard Carmine

      in January will say no, there was a delay and will go until the end of 2013

    • https://www.facebook.com/DarkCh0c0late Kei Harvin

      Overrun is cool and all but can anyone confirm straight up Horde? It’s my all time favorite mode and I don’t want to see it “overrun” by this new mode. It’s what got my girlfriend into Gears, blasting endless waves of locust until my controller died or my character did lol.

        Judging from your all-caps and lack of spelling experience, you haven’t finished grade school already.

        So nice!
