Lost Relics DLC Coming June 18th!

 on | featured gears of war

The new Lost Relics DLC for Gears of War: Judgment will be arriving tomorrow, June 18th for VIP members!  The rest of Gears fans can expect to get their hands on Lost Relics the following Tuesday, June 25th.  This DLC includes four new maps, new weapon and armor skins, as well as the new mode Breakthrough.  Read up on all the new maps and study the flythrough videos below to get the competitive edge over your enemies.

Lost City Map

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.
