Epic Games have announced a new character for Gears of War: Judgment known as the Epic Reaper, which will be elected one a weekly basis.

PR Manager Wes Phillips revealed the Epic Reaper character from Gears of War: Judgment during a panel with Sr. Producer Chris Wynn and Sr. Gameplay Programmer Pete Knepley during SXSW.

Chr_ReaperOne member of the Gears community will be chosen to be the Epic Reaper, based upon their contribution to the community.

The Epic Reaper has special abilities and physics so he’s not very easy to kill. If you do manage though, you will be rewarded with the Reaper medal and a custom weapon skin! Sounds like an unfair advantage for multiplayer, but whoever gets to be Epic Reaper has earned it.

The person who is chosen as Reaper will receive a set of custom Gears of War: Judgment dog tags. Epic employees will also have the Reaper skin available, so if you kill them, it will count towards the medal and skin.

You can also nominate a person to be the Epic Reaper by posting in this thread or on Twitter using #GearsReaper.
