Gears of War Judgement Leak 1

In a surprise reveal today, Game Informer showed us the cover of their magazine for July. Without even a rumor of its existence, they revealed a new Gears of War game that will be officially announced at E3. The game was revealed to be called Gears of War:Judgement.

It was unknown where the game was featured in the series timeline, until an anonymous source told IGN “Baird, Cole, Garron, and Sofia — the four members of Gears of War: Judgment‘s Kilo Squad — have been “charged for treason because they didn’t follow orders, stole equipment, and their actions could end up killing millions of people they swore to protect.”

Judgement takes place around a decade before the original Gears of War trilogy, where we will get to see Baird and Cole’s wonderful relationship develop.

There are two new characters joining Baird and Cole, but we’ll have to wait for the reveal trailer this week at E3 to find out exactly what role they play in Kilo Squad.

Keep a watch here on as more Gears of War: Judgement details emerge, and also check out Game Informer’s latest issue once it hits shelves.
