April 30, 'Gears of War: Judgment' DLC 'Call to Arms' Brings New Mode And Locations


Three new maps and the free-for-all Master At Arms mode are on the way to Epic/People Can Fly's shooter.

Let's start with the new mode, which requires players to get a kill with each of "Judgment's" 20 available weapons without using grenade or melee kills. Each time a player makes a kill one with a weapon, the game will cycle to the next until they've gone through all 20.

As for new maps, "Gears of War: Judgment" will add a cemetery, a hospital, and a train terminal. Here's how Epic describes the three new locations:

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 defenseless 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 defense 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 mobilized 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.

"Call to Arms" will be available on April 30 for 1000 MS Points and April 23 for owners of the game's VIP pass.
