Check out the Epic Reaper character from Gears of War: Judgment. He was revealed at the SXSW this weekend by Epic Games PR Manager, Wes Phillips during a panel with Sr. Producer, Chris Wynn, and Sr. Gameplay Programmer, Pete Knepley.
The official Epic Gamers Blog will let the fans have some control here:
‘Each week, one member from the Gears of War community will be chosen to be the Epic Reaper. Members will be chosen based on their contributions to the community. The Epic Reaper has special abilities and physics so he’s not very easy to kill. If you do manage though, you will be rewarded with the Reaper medal and custom weapon skin! The person who is chosen as Reaper will receive a set of custom Gears of War: Judgment dog tags. Epic employees will also have the Reaper skin available, so if you kill them, it will count towards the medal and skin.’
Are you looking forward to being chosen as the Epic Reaper? Let us know what you think.
