Gears Judgment Academy_SP    Amidst what is becoming a quickly becoming an additional season of major title releases, Microsoft and Epic Games announced the release of the latest installment in the Gears of War franchise today, Gears of War: Judgment. A prequel that takes players to just after the events of Emergence Day, Judgment follows the story of Baird, Cole and the rest of Kilo Squad, before their introduction to Marcus and Dom, and their attempt to save the besieged city of Halvo Bay from a terrifying and, at that time, new enemy.

Though it’s a prequel, Judgment does introduce some new features to the franchise. Such features include a new “Smart Spawn System” that alters the type of enemies, as well as their spawn timing and location at each encounter, and a “Mission Declassification System” that lets you uncover additional critical information during the campaign (hopefully not like Halo 4’s campaign-interrupting Waypoint stories). As this is the first prequel title for the Gears franchise, it’s likely that if Judgement is well received, we shall see at least one more game following this storyline. After all, Emergence Day was the safe route for the developers to take, over the human-on-human conflict of The Pendulum Wars.
