The Gears of War Judgement launch trailer will chainsaw your face off
It must be trailer season. Hot on the heels of yesterday’s quartet of FUSE videos, Epic Games has released a brand new trailer for Gears of War: Judgement. As you can imagine, it’s a subdued, cerebral affair. Read on to see it for yourself.
First announced at last year’s E3, Gears of War Judgement takes place before the events of the three previous games, and tells the story of Lieutenant Damon Baird. In a major break from past Gear of War games, Judgement tells a much more intimate tale. You see, Damon Baird has a dream. A dream to become a professional mime. But is there room for mimes in a hellish landscape of war and suffering? Told through a series of quick time events, Judgement will follow Baird on his journey from soldier, to mime, to supersoldiermime.
Just kidding. It’s still all blood and guts and chainsaw guns. Here’s the official description.
Emergence Day just unleashed hell upon the people of Sera. A young Lieutenant named Damon Baird and his team, Kilo Squad, must square off against an indomitable locust villain to save a city and its people, and no rules or orders are going to stand in their way.
As promised, here’s the trailer. Anyone with an aversion to chainsaws mixing with faces will want to skip it.
Judgement was developed by People Can Fly, the studio behind the much-hyped Bulletstorm from 2011. After the game didn’t sell quite as well as expected, a sequel was put on indefinite hold, and the team moved on to Judgement. While Bulletstorm had it’s flaws, it was quite popular in the Save Game offices for awhile. People Can Fly put together some of the most jaw dropping action sequences we’ve ever seen in a video game, and we can’t think of a better crew to take the reigns of Gears of War. The game will release exclusively for the Xbox 36o on March 19th.
