Gears of War: Judgement formally announced with E3 trailer

Epic has whispered and muttered about a new Gears of War over the past few days, but Gears of War: Judgement was only given its grand unveiling during Microsoft's presentation at E3 today. The trailer confirmed that yes, Baird and Cole Train will be shooting guns a lot.

Epic explains that Judgement is set before the original trilogy, and focuses on Kilo Squad, lead by series regulars Damon Baird and Augustus 'The Cole Train' Cole. It all goes down in the early days of the Locust invasion, which you can re-live in four-player co-op.

Judgement also packs a new multiplayer mode, 'OverRun,' which Epic describes this as a class-based, objective-driven mode for 5v5.

Gears of War: Judgement is coming exclusively to Xbox 360 in "early 2013."
