The July issue of Game Informer is no longer blacked out, and some rumored story details have been revealed as well.
According to unconfirmed reports, the game will focus on Baird and the Kilo Squad, the Coalition of Ordered Governments army infantry squad – Cole and Garron Sofia are part of the team.
The members have been accused of equipment and instrument theft, which could result in millions of lives lost, and are therefore being tried for treason.
The prequel depicts E-Day – 14 years before the first Gears of War – and will reportedly focus on the evolving relationship between the heroes through the series during the Locust War.
The game will also reportedly feature a young Marcus Fenix before being tossed in jail desertion.
Gears of War: Judgement is being worked on by People Can Fly, and more information is expected at E3 as well in the July issue of Game Informer, which will feature two covers: one focusing on Damon Baird and Augustus “Cole Train” Cole, gracing the other. Have a look at both covers below.
