Epic has released details about upcoming content for Gears of War: Judgment, the series prequel that was released last month.
The Call to Arms Map Pack is to launch on Xbox 360 on April 30 (those with a VIP Season Pass can grab the content on April 23), and will feature three new maps, and a game mode called Master at Arms. The new DLC will cost 1000 MS Points.
Master at arms is a free-for-all playlist, with the aim of the game being to get at least one kill with each of the 20 weapons available (but without using melee and grenade tactics). Getting a kill with one weapon will elevate you to the next level, until you've cycled though the lot and are crowned champion.
Here's the descriptions of the three new maps, and a selection of screens that accompanied the announcement.
Terminal: The speed and ferocity of the Locust invasion took Halvo Bay completely by surprise. Residents scrambled to evacuate by every means possible, and COG forces were called in to maintain order as martial law was enforced. However, the Locust showed no mercy, and gave no quarter; they swept through train terminals like this one to take advantage of the close quarters and sheer number of defenceless humans trapped within its walls. Sometimes, COG forces could hold the line long enough for a final evacuation, but too many lost their lives in defence of the people and the land they loved.
Blood Drive: As casualties started to mount, the staff at Halvo Memorial quickly began what would become the largest triage effort in the history of Sera. Their "Give Blood Today" campaign inspired a global blood drive in support of COG forces and wounded civilians. Sadly, Halvo fell quickly, and the hospital became a battlefront instead of a sanctuary. The seed of hope was planted, however, and government-run Memorial hospitals across the country mobilised to keep the effort alive until Jacinto Memorial was the last standing bastion of hope for the people of Sera.
Boneyard: The concept of traditional memorial services had to be suspended due to the constant stream and alarming volume of casualties as Sera fell victim to the Locust Horde. Memorial grounds quickly became boneyards. Unmarked holes became grave sites and mausoleums were filled with the nameless remains of the fallen, their skeletons piled into heaps. Tread lightly, you never know what, or who, you're walking on, and one day you're bound to join them.
