Everyone expected Gears of War: Judgment would have a multiplayer map pack announced and today has ended up being the day. Maps! Right? Yeah! Sorry, writing articles about maps is tough. Anyway, introducing "Lost Relics" which will bring four maps, one old and three new, a brand new gametype named "Breakthrough" and a slew of armor and weapons skins. No release date or pricing information available, but, well, maps, right? Maps!
Here are the names of the maps, which you can click on to check out some level fly-through videos, along with a details about the brand new gametype "Breakthrough":
- Returning Map
- New Maps
- Breakthrough Gametype
- Breakthrough is a single-objective gametype that features two teams with very distinct roles: one team has possession of a flag that they must deliver to a set location; the opposing team has a purely defensive role and unlimited resources.
Is anyone else really weirded out realizing that Gears of War: Judgment has only been out for three months? Something about the Gears of War franchise just hearkens back to the beginning of the Xbox 360 era and now that we're learning so much about the next-gen even three months ago seems far, far away. "Lost Relics" is a great reminder that there are a lot of great games from early 2013 that are worth pulling back out and giving a whirl.
Expect more information on Gears of War: Judgment's "Lost Relics" DLC in the next few works.
