‘Down But Not Out’ Not Quite Out of Gears of War: Judgment Multiplayer

Posted on December 14, 2012 AT 12:28pm

Yesterday, Gears of War: Judgment Senior Producer Chris Wynn tweeted, “DBNO is not in any of the MP [multiplayer] modes.” Expectedly, Gears of War purists were none too enthusiastic. Today, Epic clarified Wynn’s statement about the presence of DBNO in Gears of War: Judgment to Joystiq.

“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.”

So, no DBNO in the traditional sense, but something like DBNO—at least in OverRun.

Question for the Gears of War fans out there: how much does this affect your interest in the game’s multiplayer?
