People Can Fly and Epic Games have revealed that there’s a hidden campaign tucked away in Gears of War: Judgment. This isn’t just a New Game+ option that pops up after completion, no, we’re talking a new sequence of events that stands separately from the title’s main plot.
Getting to it isn’t as easy as beating Judgment‘s climactic moment and waiting for something to pop up on the main menu after the credits roll. Instead, according to OXM, unlocking this epilogue means that gamers have to “unlock all the stars – won by completing sections of the main campaign with extra-special style and aplomb (think headshots, gibbing and getting through each area without needing revival).”
As for the content of the second campaign? This epilogue features what happened with Baird and Cole while Marcus was tangling with the Queen of the Locusts at the end of Gears of War 3. Remember that? Me too. It’s time for answers.
In an age of DLC and microtransactions, it’s nice to see such a meaty unlockable that’s only available to players who expend time and energy instead of dollars and cents.
Gears of War: Judgment drops exclusively for the Xbox 360 on March 19th.
