Sure, the gross, gruff Locust in the Gears of War games have always been squishy and fun to kill. Multiplayer matches in Epic's successful shooter series have generally pit the subterranean enemies against humanity's COG soldiers. But sometimes you just get the urge to give Cole Train an lethal Lancer massage, if only to shut the guy up.

The new Free-for-All mode in Gears of War: Judgment will let you do exactly that. The every-man-for-himself action debuting at PAX Prime this weekend and attendees will get the chance brawl it out on two new maps, too. Official descriptions follow:

GONDOLA – The Coastal Villa Apartments are part of the exclusive Halvo community located in the prestigious Agora foothills. Residents enjoy a host of interior upgrades, and each unit features an ocean view from a private patio or balcony. This quiet, gated community is located only a short gondola ride from the renowned shops and businesses of our active and thriving coastal community.

LIBRARY – The Alexiy Desipich Memorial Library is not a library in the traditional sense, but rather an archive of important documents surrounding his life, career, and personal interests. An avid historian, politician, and philosopher, Desipich is most remembered as the father and creator of the Austere Canon, the basis for the Coalition of Ordered Governments, which was shaped around eight guiding principles: Order, Diligence, Purity, Labor, Honor, Loyalty, Faith, and Humility.

DISCUSSION

I can't believe it took them this many games to add what is a staple in any other shooter. I don't know whether to applaud them for attempting to do something different for so long or to laugh for them depriving me of the one game mode that would have made online fun for me so long I gave up on the multiplayer aspect a couple games back.
