That's right - we have our very own maps, plus a brand new Execution Mode. We're a little bit excited.

You may have noticed we're big fans of the Gears Of War series at Maxim. How could we not be? It's an action-packed, alien-splatting frenzy of a game whose main weapon is a chainsaw-gun - call us old-fashioned, but that's almost everything we like rolled into one package (Note to designers: If you want the "almost" removed from that sentence, please include hot wings in the next installment). That's why we're insanely excited to be sponsoring the new multiplayer map Haven in the Xbox 360 flagship title's latest entry, Gears Of War: Judgment. Check out this exclusive preview of Haven below!

HAVEN
Formerly a tropical oasis, this ancient monastery in the Azura mountains is now a frozen wasteland, thanks to the tectonic shifts on Planet Sera. Featuring an asymmetrical circular layout, the map is a guaranteed blast - all paths lead back to the center, so no matter which route you take, you're going to be embroiled in a fast-paced, hectic battle. "Nowhere is really safe," insists Lead Level Designer Jim Brown. "It makes for especially hectic Domination games because the rings are easy to access and difficult to defend."

Of course, you can always find yourself a sweet sniping spot if that's your thing - there are several perfect vantage points with long lines of sight when you're packing the Torquebow or the Breechshot - but remember, nowhere is completely safe, especially if your opponent's found either the Booshka or the Digger Launcher (and you just know they'll be looking for them after the first few times you blow their head off from a safe distance). Fellow Lead Level Designer Dave Ewing suggests that, "securing the Boomshield on the way to the Torquebow perch will give you a nice advantage," but you'd still better watch your back...


EXECUTION MODE
As well as the Haven map, we're also deliriously happy about the brand new Maxim-sponsored Execution Mode. In Execution mode, the objective of each team is to kill all members of the enemy team before the time limit runs out. The catch? Unless hit with a one-shot kill weapon like the Booshka, players go into a "Down But Not Out" state and will revive at the end of the bleed-out timer instead of dying. To finish the job, perform an Execution on a downed enemy. This is the ultimate game mode for anyone who's a fan of all those bone-snapping, head-stomping, Lancer-eviscerating coup de grâce moments (in other words, everybody).

The new multiplayer map Haven as well as Execution Mode will be available as a free download on Xbox LIVE starting April 2nd.

So a magazine had to drop some cash to add some gears to gears judgment, but it seems it wasn't enough cash to include DBNO on all game modes

So, FratBoy Monthly (AKA Maxim) vouches for a Gear game?
Shocking.

So, Sony fanboy Spirtual Leader (AKA Flores) takes a back handed jab at a Gear game?
Shocking.

This is so epic, chest bumps for errbody!

Wrong. I took a jab at the news article. I still think the Gears series is cool.

Like I said before, he can dish it out but he can take it. If someone were to bash that drab-looking Killzone demo, he'd be quite butthurt.

So Maxim and Gears team up? Glad they are trying to shake off that dude/bro stigma.

Maxim and Gears? Sounds like a bromance big enough to rival Marcus and Dom

In his defense, it's some low hanging fruit.

I don't want Flores to leave. I just think that in life, you should be able to take what you dish out, and it doesn't seem that he can, which makes him a hypocrite.

Funny thing, 3 more users thought the same thing I did. And posted about it.

EDIT: Four.

I have a feeling this game will be pretty fun. People Can Fly does great work.

new Tron says:
Yes. And a lot of people thought the Killzone demo looked just as generic as the rest of the series. And posted about it. What is your point? Is this a pissing contest?

new Tron says:
No, many, many gaming blogs/podcasts have said that it doesn't look much better than current gen shooters. But of course, that is anti-Sony talk, so you either:

1. pretend it doesn't exist
2. dispute it because it personally hurts you

While I probably won't get this game day 1, I am looking forward to it.

Posted on Feb 26, 2013, 9:52:25 AM PST

Gears Judgment looks better than Killzone 4.
