Gears of War

To quickly introduce the series to those who are unfamiliar with it, Gears of War is a third person shooter which takes place on a fictional planed called “Sera” which in many ways resembles planet Earth. The storyline focuses on a war between humans and “Locust”; violent creatures that previously lived underground until one day, they found their way out to the surface and wiped out a large portion of the human population. This day became known as the “Emergence Day”. Ever since then, a war has been raging between the remaining human population and the Locust, with each group attempting to eliminate the other.

While the first three sequels have focused on the events after the Emergence day, rather surprisingly, Gears of War: Judgment will take the player back in time to the most critical moment of the whole story – the immediate aftermath of the Emergence Day. According to the trailer first shown at E3 in June 2012, we can look forward to playing along characters that have accompanied us since the first sequel, such as Augustus Cole and Damon Baird, but we are also going to be getting to know three new key characters.

According to the developers, some of the most exciting new features are the completely new multiplayer modes. One of them is a thrilling, class-based competitive “OverRun” mode, in which the players (known as COG in Gears of War terms) will battle Locust head-to-head in a way “unlike anything Gears fans have experienced yet” (taken from official GoW statement).

The game is planned to go on shelves on March 19th, but can be pre-ordered already on sites such as Amazon. As is the case with the Gears of War series, with the exception of the first game which was also released for PC, it will be available exclusively for Xbox 360. So if you are an owner of a PC or Playstation 3, you are unfortunately out of luck.
