Gears of War: Judgment's New Mode

Epic Games and developer People Can Fly are adding a new multiplayer mode to Gears of War: Judgment called Free-For-All.

As you would expect by the name, this multiplayer mode ditches team tactics in favor of sheer personal survival. The mode is playable at PAX Prime this week, with two maps on display (description direct from Microsoft/Epic):

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.

Gears of War: Judgment comes out on March 19. For more info on the game, check out our cover story hub.
