Gears of War: Judgment – Xbox 360 (19 March 2013)

Gears of War: Judgment’s prequel setting will chronicle the events of E-Day breaking out, when the Locust first attacked Sera. While the game will revolve around the Alpha Squad disobeying orders and the impending trial, don’t expect to spend much time in the courtroom, as the new game is described as a non-stop action romp. Damon Baird and Augustus Cole are the protagonists in Judgment.

The game will play out through flashbacks, leading us to assume we’ll get insight into the desertion and war-crimes supposedly committed by Alpha Squad, and why the group may have neglected their duty. The backdrop will then be the testimony that the Squad has to give in their defense.

People Can Fly are promising to deliver a true Gears experience, with an intense campaign and beefed-up multiplayer component.
