Gears of War multiplayer has always been about the team-play; either working against each other in a team death-match situation, or instead combining forces in Horde mode. It seems however that Polish developers People Can Fly are about to mix things up in their premier entry into the Gears of War canon with Judgment.
A new mode will be added to the game which is termed Free-for-All and as its name suggests it is a throwback to the most pure form of multiplayer action, the death-match. They have also announced two new maps for the game which you can use with the new mode, the details are below.
GONDOLA – The Coastal Villa Apartments are part of the exclusive Halvo community located in the prestigious Agora foothills. Residents enjoy a host of interior upgrades, and each unit features an ocean view from a private patio or balcony. This quiet, gated community is located only a short gondola ride from the renowned shops and businesses of our active and thriving coastal community.
LIBRARY – The Alexiy Desipich Memorial Library is not a library in the traditional sense, but rather an archive of important documents surrounding his life, career, and personal interests. An avid historian, politician, and philosopher, Desipich is most remembered as the father and creator of the Austere Canon, the basis for the Coalition of Ordered Governments, which was shaped around eight guiding principles: Order, Diligence, Purity, Labor, Honor, Loyalty, Faith, and Humility.
Gears of War: Judgment will be playable this weekend at the PAX prime show, hopefully we should be able to bring you some more news soon. The game will be released for XBOX 360 on March 19th next year.
