Microsoft’s Xbox 360 exclusive Gears of War Judgement has been launched in India and the standard version will retail for Rs 2,999. Gears of War Judgement is the prequel to the Gears of War trilogy and brings a number of new gameplay elements and expands on the backstory of the franchise. Microsoft says that the franchise is bigger than its Halo franchise in India.
It further expands on the back story of side characters Damon Baird and Augustus Cole and the game introduces two new characters. In the previous games the main protagonist was Marcus Fenix. The game also builds upon its famed multiplayer mode and brings forth a new mode called the OverRun mode.
In the OverRun mode the game allows players to form a team of five-players to take turns pitting the Locust and COG soldiers in a head-to head battle. One can also increase the difficulty by declassifying information with the new Declassified testimony system. This way alternate scenarios and weapons can be unlocked.
