    MAXIM Delivers Execution Mode and Two Multiplayer Maps



    Release date: March 29th, 2013

    Price: Free



    Execution

    In Execution mode, the objective of each team is to kill all members of the enemy team before the time limit runs out.
    The catch? Unless hit with a one-shot kill weapon like the Booshka, players go into a "Down But Not Out" state and will revive at the end of the bleed-out timer instead of dying.
    To finish the job, perform an Execution on a downed enemy

    Only Spot & Smoke Grenades (Starting)
    Standard DBNO
    Playable on all standard VS Maps

    Haven

    Formerly a tropical oasis, this ancient monastery in the Azura mountains is now a frozen wasteland, thanks to the tectonic shifts on Planet Sera.
    Featuring an asymmetrical circular layout, the map is a guaranteed blast – all paths lead back to the center, so no matter which route you take, you’re going to be embroiled in a fast-paced, hectic battle.
    “Nowhere is really safe,” insists Lead Level Designer Jim Brown. “It makes for especially hectic Domination games because the rings are easy to access and difficult to defend"

    It may be too late for some fans they've gone from gears. But i happy its back in (execution) I might even pre order now that it is there. Nice one for including a new map epic (two maps) would be nice, but one extra can't complain.

    Highly doubt that. It'd take special patching to the interface to allow.
    Expect it to be Weapon + Snub.

    Clutch news, big important play by Epic. Serious momentum booster and in the very long run could turn out to be a series defining moment. Even as someone who didn't play execution much, I will now much more especially given it'll be unique as opposed to other GOWJ gametypes (Elimination, DBNO, Executions etc.). Roller Coaster going up today lol, lets keep it firm and steady from now on, my Gears junkey heart can't handle it. Plus hey we've got a pretty fun looking game to play in three weeks. Cheers.
