Gears of War: Judgment Contains a Second Campaign Titled ‘Aftermath’
Epic Games and Microsoft have announced that additional single-player content will be included in Gears of War: Judgement
Gears of War: Judgment's unlockable second campaign revealed
There's a whole 'nother campaign tucked away in People Can Fly's entertaining prequel Gears of War: Judgment, Epic has told OXM. It takes place during the final hours of Gears of War 3, and reveals what exactly Baird and Cole got up to while Marcus was busy putting down the Locust Queen.
To get at the additional content, you'll need to unlock all the stars - won by completing sections of the main campaign.
"We wanted to do something that added context to the game, so you had that beginning part, but then this ties everything together with the main trilogy as well," lead level designer Jim Brown told me at a preview event. "So you'll see when you go in there some people you recognise, some places, maybe even some enemies and then see how the two storylines weave together in the context of the whole franchise."
"Obviously we don't want to give away too many spoilers in how it's going to end or what you're going to see," he added, "But the basic gist of it is that when they're at the fort, Marcus sends Barrett and Cole off to find supplies and reinforcements, and then he goes off to Azura. Then at the very end they show up with helicopters. This is where they went and what they did on that mission."
Brown didn't let on how long the unlockable story content would last, but it sounds like there's not-inconsiderable playtime involved.
