Gears of War Judgment: ‘Down But Not Out’ Only in Some Multiplayer Modes
Gears of War: Judgment will include the series’ standard “Down But Not Out” (DBNO) mechanic in its singleplayer campaign, but the feature won’t exist in all of the multiplayer game modes.
“DBNO (Down, But Not Out) is featured in the Gears of War: Judgment campaign. As for competitive and co-op multiplayer, a DBNO-like feature exists in OverRun, wherein the Medic class has the ability to revive teammates who are downed with our new stim grenade. The difference is they are stationary and are not crawling around. Grenadiers on the Locust side can go DBNO and then be revived by another Grenadier or a Kantus. And for obvious reasons, our new Free-For-All mode doesn’t feature any sort of DBNO. We have more modes to announce in the future, so we can only comment on the modes we’ve announced so far.”
Epic has yet to confirm or deny the existence of a Horde mode in Judgment, although given the mode’s popularity, it’s a safe bet.
