Little snippets of details are periodically leaking out for Gears of War: Judgement and as we’ve told you in previous posts, the game is expected to be shown of during Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference. Whether or not it will just be a reveal trailer or gameplay is unknown. The game has been in development for a while though as People Can Fly dropped the Bulletstorm sequel they were working on quite awhile ago.
Baird will be the main playable character a long with Cole as the second lead. New characters Garron Paduk and a red-haired girl named Sophia Hendricks will be introduced, continuing the series 4 player co-op addition. Yesterday we suspected that the game was possibly a prequel, taking place shortly after E-Day, but it seems, as suspected that we were wrong. As of right now, all we know is that the game is a spin-off and not a true sequel or prequel. The game will focus on Baird in his earlier years, and has apparently been accused of military crimes. The same could be said for Cole as well. From what we can tell from the images released, neither Baird or Cole have their war scars yet. Hopefully we’ll know when the game takes place soon so we can set all speculation aside.
Karen Traviss is also no longer acquainted with the Gears of War Franchise, so someone new is at the helm for the story this time around.
Lastly, a new mode named “Overrun” may be in the works. This mode is said to be a mix of Horde and Beast Mode.
That’s all the details we have for now, but if you follow us on Twitter and Facebook you can stay up to date with all the latest news about Gears of War Judgement as we will be following the game extra close. Keep in mind none of these details have been confirmed yet, once the Gameinformer issue is in our hands we’ll have a ton of details to share with you.
