Gears of War Judgment – New Free DLC Available Today

Earlier today, Microsoft has released the new and free Gears of War Judgment’s Execution Multiplayer DLC by Epic Games and Maxim.

Beware, though, that you are going to have to download the DLC directly from the title menu or from the Dashboard. “The dialogue box prompting you to download the pack in the matchmaking menu is not functioning properly and will be fixed as soon as possible.”

Here is the official press release:

MAXIM Delivers Execution Mode and A Free “Gears of War: Judgment” Multiplayer Map for a Limited Time Beginning Today
Epic Games and MAXIM launch the first game add-on and title update for “Gears of War: Judgment” featuring fan-favorite multiplayer mode Execution and a new multiplayer map, Haven

Starting today, begin the executions courtesy of MAXIM and Epic Games with the first game add-on for “Gears of War: Judgment.” The DLC includes the return of the wildly popular multiplayer mode Execution and a new multiplayer map called Haven, which will be free for a limited time only.

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.

In addition to the new mode and map, special playlists for both Haven and Execution will be available for Gearheads, offering 200% XP boosts for a limited time (VIP pass holders will receive 300% XP boosts in the VIP playlist).

PLEASE NOTE: You must download the DLC pack directly from the game’s title menu or the Xbox 360 dashboard. You can also add it to your download queue with this link via Xbox.com. The dialogue box prompting you to download the pack in the matchmaking menu is not functioning properly and will be fixed as soon as possible.

In addition to the DLC, the first title update will be going live today as well. Additional details can be found on Epic’s forum.

Are you looking forward to playing the new and improved Gears of War Judgment?
