Today at Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference, briefly after Microsoft dropped an extraordinary showing from Halo 4, they followed it up with another blockbuster franchise. Gears of War: Judgment didn’t have to wait long into the show to see it’s reveal, which you can view below.

A couple of things I grabbed from this particular trailer is it features two returning Gears characters, Augustus Cole and Damon Baird. If you played the other Gears titles you’ll notice that they look a lot younger. Gears of War Judgment takes place 14 years before Gears of War 1. Baird and Cole are accompanied in Kilo Squad by newcomers Garron and Sofia. Kilo Squad is being charged with treason by not following orders, stealing equipment, and their actions could potentially kill millions of citizens they swore to protect.
Gears of War: Judgment is being co-developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly, the developers of Bulletstorm. Judgment is slated for a release in early 2013 and you can read more about the multiplayer details that have surfaced.
