Epic Games, co-developer of the "Gears of War" series of shooters, announced on Friday that its new "Gears of War: Judgment" DLC dubbed "Dreadnought" will be made available on Wednesday, May 15. The DLC will be offered free of charge "for a limited time," according to Epic Games' website.

Here's a little backstory on the DLC, courtesy of Epic Games:

"In the months immediately following Emergence Day, the COG managed to capture some Locust Berserkers. Thinking that a ship at sea would be safe from an underground enemy, the COG decided to transport their prize to a secure research facility via the CNV Pomeroy. Little did they know that the Locust had waterborne beasts from the underground rivers of the Hollow or that the Locust soldiers would use them so relentlessly to rescue the captured Berserkers. The Pomeroy was corralled into a narrow channel and forced ashore, where the Locust sent a mass of troops to assault and overwhelm the beached vessel."

This is the first "Gears of War: Judgment" DLC to be released since the "Call to Arms" DLC was made available on April 23.
