Judgement will be passed... on Monday.

The next installment in the Gears of War series, first teased yesterday, is titled Gears of War: Judgement, Game Informer has revealed. The characters blacked out on the magazine’s July cover story are now shown to be both Damon Baird and Augustus “Cole Train” Cole (there are two covers).

Stick around on Monday, when Microsoft will reveal the first trailer for Gears of War: Judgement, and Game Informer will go live with details on the game’s multiplayer mode.

Update: A few details have surfaced online from early adopters of the magazine. In development at People Can Fly, Gears of War: Judement is a spin-off prequel focused on Baird in his early years, who is accused of military crimes. Cole Train, Garrron Paduk, and a red-haired girl named Sophia Hendricks join Baird on Team Kilo, which he leads. The game will offer “more freedom” in its narrative, and a “Smart Spawn System” said to increase the game’s longevity, allowing you to create different situations by replaying certain acts or chapters.

Multiplayer is said to be class-based. A new mode called “Overrun” combines the series’ regular Horde and Beast modes.

    Forza two years in a row. Halo two years in a row.

    Gears two years in a row.

    Two Fable games this year alone.

    Yep. MS is awesome.

      @Malcolm Reynolds:

      No guarantee this will be out this year.

      Microsoft needs a blockbuster for Fall 2013, so I’d expect it to be out next year.

    Watch what they do. They going to announce gears of war judgement for fall 2013 at E3 2012 then early 2013 they going to announce forza 5 for fall 2013 also.

  • Malcolm Reynolds

    ^true. But MS needs a whole Hell of a lot more than “A” blockbuster for fall 2013. They need more than A game A year. Its the same damn problem every year with them. They release one or two major games a year from the same tired four franchises and act like that justifies the cost of owning their system.

    A blockbuster is not enough and is totally unacceptable.

    No Marcus?. Interesting.
