IGN has posted a video that features some of the writing and artistic choices that went into making Gears of War: Judgment.

The video features writers Tom Bissell and Rob Auten speaking about filling in the back-stories and fleshing out the histories of some of the game's characters, like ex-sports star Cole and the formerly moneyed Baird. The writing duo said how important it was for them stay true to the world that the previous games have built.

Art director Chris Perna admits that he's a horror fan and infused a lot of darkness and fear into the artistic elements of the environments. He also goes on to say that this game is the best they've made in terms of cinematography and visual style. Check out the full video below to see if you agree with these assessments and look out for Gears of War: Judgment when it drops on March 19, 2013.
