The next Gears of War sequel is out next week, and Epic has some protagonists it wants you to meet.

Gears of War: Judgment is a prequel to the Gears of War trilogy, and stars the members of Kilo Squad. The story focuses on the days following Emergence Day, and trails familiar faces Baird and Cole, and newcomers Paduk and Sofia.

This teaser trailer gets you up close and personal with the group, and shows off a bit of what makes each of them worthy of being a COG soldier. With just a little over a week to go until Judgment arrives, our excitement for this sequel is reaching an all-time high.

Check out the trailer below, and let us know which member you're looking forward to playing as when Judgment finally arrives.
