Gears of War: Judgment
« on: May 31, 2012, 12:12:43 PM »
Gonna post this here until we get more news:

July Cover Revealed: The Next Gears Of War



Usually, we like to reveal the name and final cover art for our upcoming issue's cover story the Thursday before it hits subscribers. This time we're saving the full unveiling of the game's title until Monday during Microsoft's E3 press conference, but we can confirm that our next cover is the new installment in the Gears of War series and is coming to Xbox 360. We figure this news and a glimpse of the shrouded Gears of War cover are least some consolation, as the image raises some interesting questions: Who is in chains, and where?

Take your time trying to decipher clues about the next game in the Gears of War universe, and check back on Monday when we fully pull back the curtain on both (yes, we said "both") of our covers. Also waiting for you on Monday is a teaser trailer jammed with sneak peeks at our month of online Gears of War coverage. As always, you can learn more about Epic's new game in the following weeks with a wealth of online videos, articles, and interviews that will populate our upcoming Gears of War hub, including an exclusive and extensive first look here at Game Informer that hits Monday morning. You don't want to miss it.

I'd venture to guess someone's getting their Pendulum Wars Prequel... but that's just a shot in the dark here... 8) ;)

Reavers in the background means no Pendulum Wars prequel, I can still hope though!   :)

So who do we think the guy is? New character? Dom? Let's speculate! I do love E3, hopefully it'll pack a punch with release info this year. Especially now that, SURELY, the kinect hype has simmered down a bit.

Considering the Kinect holds a guiness world record for fastest selling consumer electronic device ever, and that they've sold 19 million of them, I think they'll definitely have plenty of Kinect related things to talk about at E3.
I like my women how I like my coffee: ground up and in the freezer.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50... but there's only a 10% chance of that.

Pretty much guaranteed, proper games will be low down on the list behind crappy motion gaming and even more entertainment rubbish no doubt!

Epic's Mike Capps mentioned on Twitter that People Can Fly (Bulletstorm) will be involved in the new Gears title.

Meh. But, Kade has a point. I didn't actually realise it held a record for its sales. I'm loving the device, I just wish they'd pitch more grown up uses of it. Integration into some of next years games or something, not just a bunch more kids games.

Back on topic, actually very excited to hear about the gears release - and even more so now that the Bulletstorm team are working on it, since I loved the game and was disappointed to hear the sequel was being scrapped.

Gears of War: Judgment revealed - first images
Key characters with younger faces further hint at prequel

So, it's called Gears of War: Judgement and it looks like those prequel rumours were true.

Game Informer had teased its new Gears of War cover earlier today for a full reveal on Monday, but it seems those plans have changed because it's now unleashed the full title and uncensored cover images.

There are two variations of the cover, one showing Damon Baird shackled and being escorted by two soldiers as a Locust battle rages in the background. The other cover is near identical but instead features Augustus "Cole Train" Cole, also shackled.

It looks like the prequel rumours hit the nail on the head because both characters appear a lot younger in the images. But Bulletstorm dev People Can Fly's rumoured involvement in the project is still yet to be confirmed.

GI says to look out for multiplayer details on Monday - and surely a big reveal at E3.

E3 2012: First Gears of War: Judgment Story Details
We have to go back.

Baird, Cole, Garron, and Sofia -- the four members of Gears of War: Judgment's Kilo Squad -- have been "charged for treason because they didn't follow orders, stole equipment, and their actions could end up killing millions of people they swore to protect," an anonymous source told IGN.

This is the premise of Judgment, and the crux of the trailer debuting at Microsoft's E3 press conference on Monday, June 4, where we'll learn officially that the next Gears of War is a prequel to the first game.



Baird and Cole look younger in Judgment because Kilo Squad was only around during the two years following Emergence Day, as far as the Gears of War novel Coalition's End is concerned. E-Day happened 14 years before the first Gears of War, which puts us more than a decade behind Epic's original Gears game, giving us the opportunity to watch their delightful relationship develop. It also leaves Judgment open to introduce a young Marcus Fenix before he gets thrown in the clink for desertion.

Two people new to the Gears canon join Baird and Cole, but we'll need to wait for Monday's E3 trailer to learn more about who they are, how they're connected to these guys, and what role they play in Kilo's treason.

More rumours online, only a few days to wait for confirmation now.   :)

The first detail of Gears of War: Judgment from GameInformer's newest issue have recently been leaked!
There are a few people in NeoGaf forum claiming that the Gears Of War: Judgment first details have been leaked on the internet; some members even said about the game will be featuring flying production (it means people can fly), but is this real? Furthermore, there is a recent message from Mike Capps, President of Epic Games, has hinted the flying production is real on his Twitter's account "Do I detect People Can Fly involvement?” YES YES YES!".
 
Also, the game has a new mode named Overrun combined by Horde and Beast and more information can be found below:
 

People can fly production
Baird is in chain (not marcus)
Spin off
KiloSquad Based
Smart Spawn System
     
i've seen just a couple of pages leaked (and promptly removed by Microsoft ) so i can't be sure but screens suggested third person
     
as story setting..
   
definitely after pendulum wars
     
Some more info:
Prequel focuses on Baird in his earlier years, who apparently has been accused of military crimes.
New to the franchise is class-based gameplay in multiplayer (new gametype).
     
Apparently there is a new mode called "Overrun" which is Horde and Beast combined.
     
Epic forum user says it takes place 15 years before Gears 1.
     
The missions are set a short time after E day, when the Locust first emerged from underground.

More details of the upcoming Xbox 360 exclusive title Gears Of War: Judgment have eventually arrived

Cog classes:

Baird-engineer=Weapons: gnasher and blowtorch,Special abilities: sentry turret, tip: blowtorch repairs damaged fortifications
Cole-soldier= lancer and boomshot, deploy ammo crates, toss amo to engineer to give him infinite blowtorch ammo
Sofia-medic= lancer and snub pistol, stim gas gernade, toss gernade at downed allies to revive them
Garron-scout= longshot and snub, beacon gernade, climb perches for better sniping leverage
     
Characters bio:
     
Damon Baird:
Before this sarcastic, genius mechanic went on to help Marcus Fenix save the world, Baird worked his way through the Gears ranks. He’s always quick to joke, but Judgment suggests there’s more to his character than being a comedian.
     
Augustus Cole:
A former Thrash Ball player turned soldier the "Cole Train" became famous in Sera for his on-feild performance and boisterous demeanour. Cole met Baird soon after enlisting, and the two quickly became best friends.
     
Garron Paduk:
A miltia refuge from the Union of Independent Republics. Garron comes from the other side of The Pendulum Wars. He brings a new perspective and brush personality to Kilo. Garron is the devil on Baird's shoulder that say's "Let's blow stuff up."
     
Sophia Hendricks:
A cadet from the onyx guard academy, she is more in line with colonel loomis by the book approach to combat. E-day halted her path to graduation from the academy, but she is still worth the soldier. She is the opposite of Garron, ready to suggest informing superior officers of every deviation from protocol.

Special Ability: Stunning scream.

What does "Smart Spawn System" mean?

I was kind of hoping that if they absolutely *had* to make another Gears game, it would have nothing at all to do with Marcus and the gang.
Your mom!
