Free Gears of War: Judgement DLC map next week

'Dreadnought' map coming courtesy of Maxim partnership

Gears of War: Judgment players will be able to download a new OverRun map called Dreadnought for free next week.


Dreadnought will be the second free GoW: Judgement DLC drop to be released courtesy of Epic Games' partnership with mens magazine Maxim, following the release of a pack containing two multiplayer maps and Execution mode.

Available free 'for a limited time' from May 15, the map is set on a beached vessel called the CNV Pomeroy.

Here's the story behind it:

"In the months immediately following Emergence Day, the COG managed to capture some Locust Berserkers. Thinking that a ship at sea would be safe from an underground enemy, the COG decided to transport their prize to a secure research facility via the CNV Pomeroy.

"Little did they know that the Locust had waterborne beasts from the underground rivers of the Hollow, or that the Locust soldiers would use them so relentlessly to rescue the captured Berserkers. The Pomeroy was corralled into a narrow channel and forced ashore, where the Locust sent a mass of troops to assault and overwhelm the beached vessel.
