With the release just a few short weeks away now, Gears of War: Judgment from both Epic Games and People Can Fly (published by Microsoft Game Studios) has an unlockable campaign that will take players right back to the final moments of Gears of War 3.
With the main campaign more of a prequel to events leading up to the first Gears of War, it’s a really fitting touch that an Epilogue campaign can be further unlocked by completing specific challenges and missions through your Judgment journey. The Epilogue is said by OXM to be playable chapters that “reveals what exactly Baird and Cole got up to while Marcus was busy putting down the Locust Queen.”
Quoted by lead level designer Jim Brown at the preview event:
“We wanted to do something that added context to the game, so you had that beginning part, but then this ties everything together with the main trilogy as well,”
“So you’ll see when you go in there some people you recognise, some places, maybe even some enemies and then see how the two storylines weave together in the context of the whole franchise.”
Exactly how long the prologue would last was unclear, but we’re hoping to receive our review copy pretty soon and will reveal all when the embargo is lifted.
