Free DLC out now for Halo 4, Gears of War: Judgment

New content for Microsoft shooter games available today on Xbox Live.

by

Free downloadable content for Halo 4 and Gears of War: Judgment is available today on Xbox Live.

Forge Island

Halo 4 gamers can now download Forge Island, a map that was revealed during PAX East last week. It spans three modifiable areas and features islands called "Great Anvils." Gamers can download the map via the Halo 4 in-game store or through the Xbox Live marketplace.

Gears of War: Judgment gamers can now pick up the Execution multiplayer mode and a new multiplayer map called Haven, which will be free only for a limited time. This content is sponsored by men's magazine Maxim.

On top of the new mode and map, special playlists for Haven and Execution will be available, offering up 200 percent experience boosts. Those who own the $20 Gears of War: Judgment VIP Season Pass will receive a 300 percent experience boost in their own VIP playlist.

Even though I don't own Gears of War Judgment until the price is lower, I will be downloading this anyway and I have no use for Halo 4 Forge system since I don't built anything so this is no big deal.

sounds like a crock to me. sony is saying that so you still buy the ps4 blame it on the publishers then it's not sonys fault, since all the publishers will probably block used games if allowed.

Downloading both right now. The Haven Map and Execution Multiplayer mode is together in one download.

The Forge is still FUBAR in Halo 4.  All they had to do was copy/paste the Forge from Halo Reach into this one and add some new stuff.  Give it a bigger budget and higher limit from items.  Then, I would be in Forge a hell of a lot.  But nooooooo, they had to create their own Forge where the controls are weird and the humongous default Forge map from Reach is nowhere to be found.

YOU HAD ONE JOB

Haven is the best map in Judgment. Now let's get a patch to unlock Warzone and I'll be very happy.

Warzone is disc-locked content in GoW Judgment. Just start a private match, highlight Team Deathmatch, press A, then press A and B at the same time. Viola, Warzone has been selected!

If the 'Sponsored by........." is what MS were talking about when they told us to expect more advertising, well if it means Free DLC, then i dont have a problem.

Quite a clever move if thats their plan.

Execution and Warzone are the only appealing modes to me in GeoW. Should have shipped like that. The new modes are spammy, COD-like, running and gunning with out a care in the world, no team work required modes that just aren't any fun with my friends. If I want to play Halo or COD respawning matches, I'll play those. I'm glad this is shipping for free...for now.

Execution should have shipped with Judgement, but atleast it's free for the time being.

Microsoft and Free in the same sentence, what sort of dark magic is this?

Sure it's free? Remember what happened the last time there was some free Halo 4 DLC.

@AceOfCrimson All shooters are generic. Way overdone and generic. You played one, you've played them all.


Not one non generic shooter.

@ddoggbritt16 @blackace I was being sarcastic. As cows always say XBox Live never have anything FREE. I'm downloading both of these right now. The Haven Map and Execution Multiplayer mode is together in one download.

@c0kemusheen - Who would that be?  Everyone from the continent of Europe?  Can you point Europe out on a map?

@JunglemanchiId @WolfBladeKK He is right you know. Even then, the title of the game uses "Judgment", not "Judgement". If it's any consolation, spellchecker didn't mark any of those wrong.
