Gears of War: Judgment 'Lost Relics' DLC announced

New content out in June; introduces new game type and maps.

Epic Games has announced an upcoming DLC pack for Gears of War: Judgment called "Lost Relics".

Gears of War: Judgment has a new online mode oncoming.

According to the official news on the Epic Games forums, the new DLC will introduce a new online multiplayer game type called Breakthrough. Here, players will need to form two teams; one team must deliver a flag onto set locations, while the opposing team must stop them and are granted unlimited resources to do so.

The new pack will also feature four new maps for this version of the game: Gears of War 3's map Checkout, Lost City, Museum, and Ward. Players can also expect new armor and weapon skins, though Epic Games has yet to list them out in full detail.

Gears of War: Judgment was out on March 19 and was set as a prequel to the previous Gears of War titles. The game was praised for its difficulty modifiers in the single-player campaign and multiplayer modes, but was criticized for its narrative flow and aftermath campaign.

I saw more people playing co-op campaign on Gears 3 than most online modes in Judgement.

Just have to add: People Can Fly should never be allowed to make or contribute to any future games.  You are a JOKE!!!!

Bring back HORDE MODE already.  Stop giving us useless modes no one cares about.  A lot of people will not go back on-line until HORDE is returned.  Smarten up!

According to IGN, this isn't in the Season Pass, which is really fuc**ng stupid. I'm one of the few people that not only bought the game, but purchased the season pass as well. Never purchasing anything that says Epic or People Can Fly on the cover again

Just ONCE I would love to see Gears of War or Halo or Call of Duty or Tomb Raider or Crysis or any shooter do single player DLC. I promise people will download. There are millions of single player centric fans like me out there publishers! We don't care about MP maps, really!

This is the first gears I didn't get.  I just played the MP demo and was impressed, but I don't think I'll get the game until it goes down to $25 or so.

This is certainly a prime example of how not to do DLC. Holding back entire game modes and maps to the detriment of those who don't buy DLC, or just want to just enjoy the content that's on the disc.

People bought this cash grab, I mean game?

Oh who am I kidding of course they did. Gears of War Puzzle Blaster would sell millions on the damn name alone.  I stopped after two, but ohwell to each his/her own I suppose and I suppose somewhere, someone is happy about forking out more cash for this thing.

@JoshGill8 Why should it be in the season pass? THe pass buys you thin air for 1 season but for DLC you have to pay extra.

Imagine, 3/4 of the game completed at veteran difficulty/medals/missions/coop/etc resetted 3 times...f*** you Epic.

@b74kd3th I know. I went on the other day and there was MAYBE 1500 spread out between all modes

@Yamakoichi Yeah, I regret getting the season pass, honestly. Too many downsides, and lag makes it unbearable.

@pwnzord 

The only thing this had in common with Gears of War was the name and being 3rd person

First of all, love the name and picture. Second of all, I agree, I made the very unfortunate mistake of playing the campaign FIRST buying the VIP pass thinking that MP would just be an updated Gears 3.

oh how horrified I was when I discovered that the MP plays completely different from the campaign,  I should of known as different developers did them, but to really see how inferior MP was to Campaign and how overall the game was so weak compared to any Gears of War regardless of preference.

How could they justify changing the MP system so much that even when they add execution back it, that it just does not fit in and work with the system?! It was meant to be gears of war not 3rd person Halo 4 ;-;
