Gears of War: Judgment First Hour of Campaign

As part of our new ‘Hour Glass‘ series, we now present to you gameplay from the first hour of Gears of War: Judgment.

The fourth entry in the Gears of War series is a prequel that follows Baird and Cole prior to the events of the trilogy. The Kilo Squad this time has two new faces – Garron Paduk and Sofia Hendrik.

Paduk is fighting against the Locust in revenge of what they did to his homeland. As a member of a foreign military unit, Paduk is a pretty mean character and one that should not be messed with. Sofia Hendrik, on the other hand, is a cadet and former reporter.

Currently, a multiplayer demo for the game is available for download for all Xbox Live Gold members. The demo lets you play through the new ‘OverRun’ mode, which is an objective-oriented class-based mode that lets five-player teams alternate between playing as Locusts and COG soldiers.

Gears of War: Judgment officially releases tomorrow on Friday in the UK. Initial reviews of the game look very promising. For a prequel, Judgment delivers everything an A-rated game should and perhaps even more.
