Epic Games and People Can Fly announced today that Gears of War: Judgment
will be receiving some new DLC, which will be welcome news for those looking to expand the variety and experience with regards to multiplayer.
The "Call to Arms" DLC will feature three new MP maps, six new armour and gun skins, and a new game mode titled, "Master-at-Arms".
Let's start with the new game mode and how it will further your MP experience. Think of it as "Gun Game" but Gears-style
:New Mode: “Master At Arms”
This new free-for-all game mode exclusive to “Gears of War: Judgment” will test the true range of your soldiering skills. The goal is to get a kill with each of the 20 different available weapons, without resorting to melee or grenade tactics. Every successful kill will automatically advance you to the next available weapon until you have used them all and proven your skill as a true Master at Arms.
Here is a description of the three new maps that will be available with the new DLC:Blood Drive:
As casualties started to mount, the staff at Halvo Memorial quickly began what would become the largest triage effort in the history of Sera. Their “Give Blood Today” campaign inspired a global blood drive in support of COG forces and wounded civilians. Sadly, Halvo fell quickly, and the hospital became a battlefront instead of a sanctuary. The seed of hope was planted, however, and government-run Memorial hospitals across the country mobilised to keep the effort alive until Jacinto Memorial was the last standing bastion of hope for the people of Sera.Terminal:
The speed and ferocity of the Locust invasion took Halvo Bay completely by surprise. Residents scrambled to evacuate by every means possible, and COG forces were called in to maintain order as martial law was enforced. However, the Locust showed no mercy, and gave no quarter; they swept through train terminals like this one to take advantage of the close quarters and sheer number of defenceless humans trapped within its walls. Sometimes, COG forces could hold the line long enough for a final evacuation, but too many lost their lives in defence of the people and the land they lovedBoneyard:
The concept of traditional memorial services had to be suspended due to the constant stream and alarming volume of casualties as Sera fell victim to the Locust Horde. Memorial grounds quickly became boneyards. Unmarked holes became grave sites and mausoleums were filled with the nameless remains of the fallen, their skeletons piled into heaps. Tread lightly, you never know what, or who, you’re walking on, and one day you’re bound to join them.
The "Call to Arms" DLC will be available for holders of the VIP Season Pass, which can still be purchased for 1600 MSP
, on April 23rd. The Season Pass will net you a 25% savings, early access to two map packs, and nine exclusive skins.
The new DLC will release globally on April 30th for 1000 MSP. The new DLC adds ten new achievements for a total of 250 gamerscore.
