Complex - The story behind Gears of War: Judgement (GoW: J) focuses on the exploits of Kilo Squad led by a younger lieutenant Damon Baird. Fans of the series will know Baird as the genius smart ass engineer who joined Marcus Fenix and crew in the first three installments. This time around, set years before the first game, players find Baird and Kilo’s tale en media res. Their story begins with their court martial by COG officers out for an explanation as to the squad’s unsanctioned activities in the war with the Locust. What happens next is a series of chapters given to each squad member as they tell a tale of blood, guts and the Locust Horde.
