The lights are on
Update 2: Today Microsoft officially unveiled Gears of War: Judgment during its E3 2012 press conference. The July issue of Game Informer is packed with information on the new entry and should be arriving on newsstands and hitting subscribers soon, and you'll be able to read it on your iPad with our brand new app. Today we have an exclusive trailer teasing all the unique online Gears coverage we have coming all month, along with a link to our Gears of War: Judgment hub.
Here's the coverage trailer with snippets from our exclusive interviews with Epic Games and People Can Fly:
Below is the link to our Gears of War: Judgment hub, be sure to check back all month for new content. The first article is all about our hands-on time with Gears of War: Judgment's all new OverRun multiplayer mode.
Update 1: The new installment in Epic's billion-dollar franchise
is Gears of War: Judgment. The July cover of Game Informer shows
series mainstay Damon Baird shackled as the Locust hordes rage around him.
Augustus "Cole Train" Cole, soldier and world-famous Thrashball player,
dons our second cover image in the same precarious situation.
Check out both of the beautiful covers below, keep an eye out for the
issue in your mailbox and on newsstands, and check back Monday for more
information on Gears of War: Judgment's multiplayer mode. On Monday we'll
launch our Gears of War: Judgment hub, along with a coverage trailer for
all the exclusive Gears content you have to look forward to throughout
July. Also on Monday you can use Game Informer's new iPad app to read all
about Gears of War: Judgment and the rest of our content-packed July
Usually, we like to reveal the name and final cover art for our
upcoming issue's cover story the Thursday before it hits subscribers. This
time we're saving the full unveiling of the game's title until Monday
during Microsoft's E3 press conference, but we can confirm that our next
cover is the new installment in the Gears of War series and is coming to
Xbox 360. We figure this news and a glimpse of the shrouded Gears of War
cover are least some consolation, as the image raises some interesting
questions: Who is in chains, and where?
Take your time trying to decipher clues about the next game in the
Gears of War universe, and check back on Monday when we fully pull back
the curtain on both (yes, we said "both") of our covers. Also waiting for
you on Monday is a teaser trailer jammed with sneak peeks at our month of
online Gears of War coverage. As always, you can learn more about Epic's
new game in the following weeks with a wealth of online videos, articles,
and interviews that will populate our upcoming Gears of War hub, including
an exclusive and extensive first look here at Game Informer that hits
Monday morning. You don't want to miss it.
Our world exclusive first look at next game in the Gears of War
franchise isn't the only story worth diving into in our July issue. Get a
sneak peek at the splendor of the next console generation with our in-
depth article on Epic's Unreal Engine 4. Get ready for Call of
Duty: Black Ops II with our extensive feature detailing the game's
intense, globe-hopping campaign. We also have a new look at the long-
Raider reboot, along with The Elder Scrolls V:
Skyrim – Dawnguard and some exciting new projects that will be
announced next week.
In this upcoming issue we also catch up with Robert Bowling and discuss
the first game from his new studio, Robotoki. Ex-Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince
Zampella also reveal more on their side of the Activision/Call of Duty
drama and their future endeavors.
