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

Baird Judgment Banner

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.

LIBRARYThe 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.

        A lot of fans of asked for it since day one. If you don’t like FFA then don’t play it no need to complain about it, no one is forcing you to play it.

      • Mi Yung Kum

        That’s what Epic’s Known for now. Re-UP, Re-Cycled, Re-TARDED. All for YOUR Hard earned MONEY. They ought to change their name to
        “FAP-PIC Games”.

          i thought there was a mode where you’re on your own and it’s kill everything/everyone else ? hence free for all under ‘warzone’ or sommat

    • MiloSuperSpesh

      what about horde 3.0 ? common peeps !!

    • http://www.facebook.com/vxMarcusxv Kiefer Jordan Rusowicz

      do medals and progress from gears 3 carry on into judgment ? would be a bit fo a let down if not and would really split the community if it didn’t let you play people on gears 3

    • reaper

      need more info on horde and if beast will be making a return

    • Evilraven king

      I Love Epic Games Gears Of War 3 And Gears Of War Judgement Free For All Hopefully Maps Are alittle Bigger For More Roaming And Spacing I Hate being Put In Front of The Battle Right Away. Small Maps Should Be For Team Death,Wingmen,Alpha,Execution . Guardian,Free For All,Warzone,King Of The Hill Big Maps.

    • H.T

      It would be nice if you give Free For All for everyone Cog vs Cog vs Locust vs Locust, and put more than 10 players per game session; now that’s epic…

    • HOFFMAN and POFFMAN

      Just keep the “Original” (no Money Grubbing) Horde in the Game and I can give a Phuck about this style of gameplay.

      Is this the only mode playable at PAX? If so i won’t bother waiting in line, i have less than zero interest in FFA. Was hoping to play that other mode were you play as cog then the locust. If i can’t play that, there’s no reason for me to visit your booth.

      How about fixing a real issue epic mantle is still broken in your gears J free for all trailer ppl being kicked and stunned while stood 2 foot from the wall
      Also gnasher is a pick up weapon you realy do suck epic you just want a retard friendly fun pick up and play game, And fuck your hard core fan base you proved that with gears 3 and the retro every time the better players adapted the retards got a power boost for there special needs gun
      With the news that there was going to be no stopping power and no active damage i was actuly excited for gears J after the rubbish badly finished balanced crap of gears of war 3 i should of known better you had 3 years to fix gears 3 before release and its still broken chances of epic putting out gears J in 1 years and it being playable 1/10

      Nice move with the idea of commute to battlefield! Y know what would be even better? Having a chance to use vehicles on the battlefield! GoW has got a great supply of armed transportation on both sides, cogs and Locusts, why not exercise it? BF3 in world of GoW! How cool would that be!?

      Terrible idea. I play Gears because I like working with teammates and banding together against another force. I don’t play Wingman because I don’t like killing my teammates. That’s NOT what Gears is about. FFA may be mindless fun, but it goes against the spirit of the story. Read the novels…

      • http://www.facebook.com/jermain.jackson.79 Jermain Jackson

        Wingman doesn’t make you kill your teammates what are you talking about? If you don’t like the idea of FFA in gears, here is a thought don’t play it. No one is forcing you to. You people need to stop crying like little children and grow up.

        • BairdPoop

          Neegro Please. Go feed yo damn kids.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jermain.jackson.79 Jermain Jackson

            I don’t have kids you tool. Grow up.

      Just like how Gears 2 “goods” transferred to Gears 3. You [epic] better do the same for Judgement…considering all the Effort and MONEY we all as a Community Put in “support” for this game.
