Gears of War: Judgment MAXIM DLC – “Dreadnought” Available soon!

dreadnought_action_shotOn May 14th, you’ll be able to download the second MAXIM Map, Dreadnought, available for OverRun players free of charge for a limited time.

In the months immediately following Emergence Day, the COG managed to capture some Locust Berserkers.  Thinking that a ship at sea would be safe from an underground enemy, the COG decided to transport their prize to a secure research facility via the CNV Pomeroy. 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.  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.

Coming soon: You can also catch a fly-through video via the MAXIM app on Xbox LIVE!

      Still waiting on the Clayton Carmine multiplayer character to be added….it better happen

      • Junior

          Sweet dude! Will this mean that anyone can play as the Reaper then, and so anyone who kills them will get the goodies?

        • Reptilian Dude

          This is from a modded console. No, people won’t get to play as the reaper unless they are specifically chosen by Epic.

        • https://twitter.com/Gunja1513 Dr. Hosaj Urdga

          It as already been confirmed that they cannot add Clayton to MP. His alpha channels are all used for his tattoos, so he would not work with character skins. They said they would have to rebuild him from the ground up to put him MP and they don’t have the resources to develop, and test him.

        • https://twitter.com/Gunja1513 Dr. Hosaj Urdga

          Also been told that we cannot play as Grayson or Trishka, they are EPic and PCF exclusive. They didn’t even give those characters to Microsoft developers. They may add them in a special event, but that is it.

      • https://twitter.com/Gunja1513 Dr. Hosaj Urdga

        I responded to someone above. Won’t happen his tattoos use up all alpha channels, so he won’t work with character skins. They have to rebuild him from the ground up, and they can’t/won’t do that at this point.

      AWESOME and glad to see it coming out. Thanks Epic

      • baltazar

        emk shit, you are alone playing this trash?

        • https://twitter.com/maddogmalcs Mad Dog Malcs

          No, he’s not alone, if you no longer play the game why bother posting in the forums?

    • https://www.facebook.com/andybuckdawg Andy Buckland

      I thought Capital was the Maxim Overrun map? Don’t get me wrong, this is much better, but what will come of that map? Just wondering

      • https://twitter.com/Gunja1513 Dr. Hosaj Urdga

        This is that map, but the name of it changed while it was being developed.

        • https://www.facebook.com/andybuckdawg Andy Buckland

          Aw cool, cheers for the info!

    • evilsaintnoonan

      UMMMMMM…. Horde? This game still sucks

      • https://twitter.com/Gunja1513 Dr. Hosaj Urdga

        Already been announced Microsoft would not allow them to add Horde. The size of the update means it would need to be DLC, and a huge one at that, not enough resources to QA, develop, support, and just a pain in the ass to do. So they killed it and any hopes of it coming.

      • John Smith

        You suck. Die!

    • Frozen Zmoke

      im glad epic is listening to their fans and giving away a NEW map not a remake. alot of their fans cant afford Xbox gold or vip . im lucky i can. so kudos epic big step in the right direction. an add on like raams shadow featuring u i r would be EPIC!!!!love you guys .My fellow gears…….stop your bitching already, love it or shut the fuck up.

      • CRJJ

        “alot of their fans cant afford Xbox gold or vip”. Well said man, too many people forget that if we can spend the money on this stuff, we’ve got it good compared to many others.

      • noah

        games bad really bad your prob bad to

      • https://www.facebook.com/tobbie.edde Tobbie Edde

        Really it ant free. Maxim paid epic for the map to be released in there name. So epic still ant doing shit right with this. Nor is people can fly

    • Ashe_Darkthorne

      Looking forward to this finally coming out. Any maps is a welcomed relief in my eyes for Judgment.

    • https://twitter.com/AnacondaSnake68 Anaconda Snake

      Don’t think this game is even worth saving now become just a joke no Locust no point was waiting for there return but nothing turned once Great game into just Halo clone Crap spent fortune getting all Dlc Characters vip pass what a waste of money

      • https://twitter.com/Gunja1513 Dr. Hosaj Urdga

        Already been confirmed they cannot add Locust to MP, too much work, doesn’t work with character skins, and they cannot fix the hit boxes.

        • https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=670131673 David Pickles

          excuses are getting lamer, most of the locust ‘hit boxes’ are in the over run/survival mode right ? the soldiers are pretty much identical in size to the cog guys, and queen myrah is similar to anya/alex right ??
          since the game seems almost identical to gears 3 i don’t see why not…
          and why are these maps held back ? why not release them for ever ? beyond a special event aka a reason for people to comeback to this game ? yeah then they’ll have to do it all again cos people may check it out but then once the event ends they’ll disapear again…

          • https://twitter.com/Gunja1513 Dr. Hosaj Urdga

            No, character sizes are way different except for the grenader and maybe Theron. Even the rager, unraged is skinnier, raged is taller and wider. Myrah is not in the campaign at all. Kantus is way taller and skinnier, and scaled down always had hit box issues from G2 up. Plus from the issue they hit with Carmine, I am betting they can’t use the character skins if locust were added. Meaning another set of players would be pissed they paid for skins that only work on COG characters.

            What maps are being held back? We find out about the next DLC this week. We do know it Includes one new team oriented objective mode.

            New maps have not been added via special event.

            Gears3 maps do not work in G: Judge. It has already been told to us that they designed all the maps to work with FFA, and from what CLiffy B said during E3 (while with epic) they were doing one set of maps for FFA another for team modes (symmetrical), and another for Overrun. That plan had to be scrapped, probably when he left.

            Play the game if you like it, if not go back to Gears3 retro lancer fest.

              you’re not reading correctly..
              the game has lacked content from the begining they then charged us for a ‘vip pass’ oh sure they gave us one free map haven but the rest is coming… why does maxim suddenly get an exclusive map that we then have to pay for if we want to keep using it after this 2 weeks ?
              dreadnaught is a special event ‘free new map’ yes it may of been held back and renamed and tweaked still new..
              none of the maps are symetrical for team play similar but not a mirror image.

              and about characters hit boxes they’ve had 2/3 games since they where put in game.. surely thats enough time to fix the issues ?

            • https://twitter.com/Gunja1513 Dr. Hosaj Urdga

              If you get this new map now its free. If you don’t and the time runs out then you have to pay for it. It’s not time bombed to charge you for it after maxim’s deal is over.

            • https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=670131673 David Pickles

              yeah i found that out, but i’m sure on some games it has happened.

    • https://twitter.com/Darklurkr23 Jared Z

      So is this non-season pass right?
      I’m surprised though in these Maxim Maps there aren’t Maxim ads or magazines all over the place. I mean it’d be so non-realistic, but I think it’d be funny. Or do have like a Maxim Armor Skin with one of those badly drawn beach bodies XD

    • https://www.facebook.com/CRUNCHY916 Josh Collins

      yeah what happens to people who paid for the season pass and ur giving shit out for free not that I mind free shit I’m just sayin we didn’t pay 20 $ do get stuff for free

      • https://twitter.com/Gunja1513 Dr. Hosaj Urdga

        This doesn’t affect the season pass at all. We get info on the next paid dlc (already paid for if you have season pass) next week. Includes 1 team objective game mode.

    • madmax0399

      no locust no dbno in team death this is falling down everyday gears 3 is the best gears what happen here? take advantage of the fans love gears of war and now they charge up to no good cog epic characters epic you are the best of the best what happened ?do not realize that the fans are disappointed at least put the locust and DBNO in teamdeathmatch

    • Guest

      Stop royally screwing over co-op fans and give us Horde 3.0! This game sucks without it.

      • https://twitter.com/Gunja1513 Dr. Hosaj Urdga

        Follow the weekly web stream/discussion. It has already been announced they cannot do it. Check my comments below.

      • https://www.facebook.com/andybuckdawg Andy Buckland

        Fed up of people moaning about no Horde. Just put Gears 3 in the tray if you want Horde, it’s as easy as swapping a disk FFS. If Horde was in then people would complain it’s the same old shit again. And besides, Overrun destroys Horde any day of the week.

    • https://www.facebook.com/Patriotsfn Jeff Shoup

      Thats just stupid how they making you go to some app to view the fly through…..Laughing my fucking ass off gears isn’t that important any more as it was back in the day of gears 2 so I am not going to waste my time to do this just to see what the map looks like. Man EPIC is really fucking retarded!

      • Jack

        Hence your multiple messages. Its important enough for you to do that Troll. Go back to your very important life please.

      • https://twitter.com/maddogmalcs Mad Dog Malcs

        The app is a ‘Maxim’ app, not Epic so your comment is not really valid, if you want to check out what the map looks it can be seen openly on YouTube

    • https://www.facebook.com/Patriotsfn Jeff Shoup

      I will never play Multi Player and I will never play survival cause its not horde! This just leaves the only best part of the game left overrun! Wish there were way more maps for it! If I would of known that the game was going to launch with only 4 multi player maps and only 4 overrun maps I would of waited 3 yr before buying it then every thing would of been avail. to buy! I am just happy I got 60$ back even after the game was opened!

      • https://twitter.com/maddogmalcs Mad Dog Malcs

        Correct me if I’m wrong, you don’t even have the game anymore and are still moaning about it, move on to a forum you do have the game for, the game has moved on in a positive way, maybe you should give it another shot so your criticism can be based on up to date information.

        Video detailing the map

    • beardofzeus

      How about everyone stop being bitches and crying over stupid things like horde and locust. They won’t put them in the game. If you don’t like it stop playing the game and complaining on these post.

    • Rush F

      Corny and Hord sucks too its all about ranked execution give us some more maps and characters

    • madmax0399

      more cog characters of gears 3 that’s all people the game is good and dbno in team deathmatch

    • axel

      they need to cut down some of these overrun maps so they can work in versus bc horde could be used on every map let alone versus that’s why we feel disowned by this game epic

    • Pusswood

      OK all i have to say is if they was hearing out the community this game will not be this bad trust me..

      Theres mistakes
      1) low on map ideas or remakes
      2)they need a make your own characters or skin something that makes sence
      3) change the re-up a got damn star really :-/ make them look more like your medals
      4) add a thearter mode for people to share and enjoy amazing clips
      5)more characters if theres no locus at least add every cog back

      If the was to leasin to me butagain they dont ever take good tips

    • Steve

      The maps are way too big they need to go back to what worked in Gears 3. I been back playing Gears 3 king of the hill I don’t think I will ever go back to the multiplayer in Gears of War Judgement.

    • Irrelevant

      So stupid how they release a bunch of maps for overrun, and we still have a lot of players who does not play overrun. They should at least release a map for multiplayer with it in my opinion.

      • https://www.facebook.com/ken.kauluwehi Ken Kauluwehi

        They did… its called haven. But I agree… unfortunately overun is the most played game type in judgement. So us the MP gamers feel left out. What I am worried about was raczilla made a comment on the dev video yesterday that this DLC was the last DLC. But when we asked him about it he wouldn’t comment further.

    • Joshua Uvay

      Holy shit the amount of cry babies in this community is absurd. Stop bitching about shit that will never be. If this is such a terrible Game then don’t play. Go play call of duty or some shit. Nobody wants you here, and you are the ones that ruin this game. The innovation these guys have done is great. Keep up the good work =)

    • https://www.facebook.com/papawaiswais Patrick Bruckner

      schit dlc thats wat it is

      I hope they fix these freak in glitches achievements so we can enjoy the new stuff

    • kodax

      Just go to the old gears formula if its not broken dont brake it. Jesus christ everybody knows that.this game should not be called.gears.

    • https://www.facebook.com/DEREKBASPENCE Derek Spence

      Crybabies, go make a game that sells. Be grateful

    • https://twitter.com/maddogmalcs Mad Dog Malcs

      The more the merrier, my only regret here is that it is only for overrun and survival. I would love to see the ‘Horde’ maps joined together and available as ‘all mode’ maps as they are brilliant maps. Looking forward to seeing some more multiplayer maps that are available to ‘all’ users, inevitably when playing people only seem to have the standard maps, it’s a welcome relief when Blood Drive, Boneyard or Teminal pop up in quick matches.

      It’s time to stop slating the game and concentrate on improving it for the fans that are still playing, people that no longer care have long moved on to other games or back to Gears 3, whether they come back or not is up to them, I can only hope they do.

      For me, my two priorities would be sorting the surround sound out as it is virtually impossible to pinpoint where people are coming from and as in this case additional maps which are a welcome and much needed addition, therefore this is in my opinion a positive announcement.

      • https://twitter.com/maddogmalcs Mad Dog Malcs

        Did the date of this just update to the 14th from the 15th or am I going mad! 😀

    • chris

      Replace domination with king of the hill,it’s much better fighting over the one ring than three.more close combat.rather than them pissing campers.

      • https://twitter.com/maddogmalcs Mad Dog Malcs

        How about run Domination ‘and’ King of the Hill :)

        Domination was one of my favourite gametypes in Rainbow 6, it’s the same here, I love both matches, much more fun with an objective rather than just run and shoot :)

    • https://www.facebook.com/ricky.laughlin Ricky Laughlin

      If u dont like the game then dont play it simple solutiin I personaly like it but I also love the gow franchise and would play any in the series without complaint cause thats what die hard fans do

    • andrew

      the hit box thing is BS. I never had a problem hitting Locust in any of the other 3 games. Its just plain and simple laziness. Horde and original maps are already on disc, they are just locked. At all the gaming conventions before the game came out they showed gameplay featuring Marcus, Dizzy, and the COG gear as well as Locust in FFA. Which means its already there. THey just don’t want to fix the game they broke.

    • Mad engineer25

      Epic why why why do you keep giving us DLC for over run…..we want more maps for team death match WHo is in charge ???? VIP for this game is rubbish pull your fingers out

    • Mad engineer25

      Why why why why Epic, surely your stats show more people play team death match, people a screaming out for more DLC and not for over run. The maps you have for over run would be welcomed for TDM and sure it’s not that hard to programme. It’s a great game…… Who Evers in charge pull your finger out

    • Mad engineer25


    • Mad engineer25

      More DLC for TDM

    • Gow4sucks

      Worst GOW ever Ever entire group quit playing all together :(

    • YeahIMAChick

      can I still download this? it won’t let me play overrun and won’t let me download

    • FredB1rD

      Gears of War: Judgment has an endless list of improvements… Weapon changing (Y instead of the horrible D-Pad), using LB for grenade use, added multiple weapons– the Breechshot is possibly the best addition to any GoW game PERIOD and in my opinion losing Locust in TDM altogether.. I hated playing as those annoying and ugly bastards. Judgment has by far the best TDM gameplay and I think all of the new maps are hella badass.. Went back and played a round of GoW3 TDM and I couldn’t get Judgment back in quickly enough. Props EPIC, this may be my favorite console game of all time. Only addition, in my opinion, would be to feature the option of playing as more of the old MP characters: Dizzy, Jade, Hoffman, Carmine, etc. Other than that, very nice work!
