GoW Judgment reveals Free-For-All

GoW Judgment reveals Free-For-All

After OverRun, here comes a new multiplayer mode for Gears of War: Judgment. In Free-For-All each player battles and kills versus all other players as COG soldier. One lonely screen to depict that.


Gears of War: Judgment Free-For-All Mode Announced!

Debuting and playable this week at PAX Prime in Seattle (booth #412) this new multiplayer experience throws team tactics out the window as each player battles for survival and kills versus all other players. A first for the Gears of War series, the Free-For-All mode pits COG soldier on COG soldier in test of wits and will.

To debut the new mode with a bang, Epic Games and Microsoft are showing off two new maps as well – Gondola and Library.

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.

Free-For-All is the second new multiplayer experience introduced for “Gears of War: Judgment.” It joins OverRun, the thrilling class-based competitive mode that pits Locust and COG soldiers in a head-to-head battle, to give “Gears” fans an addictive gameplay experience.

I still love playing Gears 3 which has some of the best competitive multiplayer out there imo. So far they haven't shown me any reason why I'd want to upgrade to this one though. Shame they're looking to split the community up so soon over this weak update.

i saw Retro in a gameplay video :| was so disappointed, its the one thing in Gears3 that causes annoyance to me EVERY single time i play. I think Overrun might become my main game mode (KOTH atm), since that has designated guns and no retro, hammy or SOS.

Gears 3 was brilliant, but not sure about this different dev just yet?, i'll see how it pans out.
