Epic Games Quinn DelHoyo Explains How Gears Of War Judgment Was Designed For ESports

CARY, North Carolina – Last year, Major League Gaming (MLG) experimented with Gears of War 3 in eSports. Epic Games has been eying the burgeoning pro gaming space. With Gears of War Judgment, the developer has created a team-based multiplayer experience, OverRun, specifically designed for eSports by utilizing Unreal Engine 3. Quinn DelHoyo, multiplayer lead on Gears of War Judgment at Epic, talks about the pro gaming potential for this new Microsoft published shooter in this exclusive interview.

Gears 3 is more Esports oriented than this stupid game. It looks SO easy and changing the controls is a recipe for disaster to Gears fans.

Isn't this guy the same idiot that insists on keeping the sawn-off and retro lancer in the game? No wonder so many of Epic's key staff are abandoning the company, it's going down the toilet.

in terms of actual gameplay the only main thing changed is the quick nade throw, everything else remains the same...oh and when you wanna jump down a ledge you simply just drop down in stead of having to hit a button.
lol MS should pay to at least make some new games.

I wonder what gears 4 will play like next gen.

Nothing new since alan wake in 2010. Got the better version though on steam.

How about you design it for the fans instead of this stupid ass Esports crap. Are they the millions of people who buy your game? you are catering to the wrong group my friend.

Lol I am trying to help you guys out but whatever. If this is what Gears of War fans want then I am happy for you, but for some reason I honestly doubt that they even give a shit about esports.

Removing DBNO is a mistake.

Removing COG V.S. Locust and making it COG V.S. COG, Red V.S. Blue is a mistake.

Removing primary weapons and replacing them with a pistol and making you hunt for your second primary weapon is a mistake.

At this point it looks like they are removing horde and Beast and replacing it with Overun, a game type just like every other generic MP tack-on.

Epic has lost their friggin' minds, they are making the game so generic it's going to be unplayable.

This will be the first gears game I DON'T buy.

"Removing DBNO is a mistake"

No its simply abesent from game modes like Overrun (for COG), TDM and FFA. Do some research since this was confirmed a few days after the VGA's.

"Removing COG V.S. Locust and making it COG V.S. COG, Red V.S. Blue is a mistake."

Probably the true thing you said in your comment about the game.

"At this point it looks like they are removing horde and Beast and replacing it with Overun, a game type just like every other generic MP tack-on."

Thats the exact same speculation that had everyones panties in a twist about DBNO. We seem to be having a "if its not confirmed what we say is gonna happen" issue with this game.
