Apart from its regular campaign, Gears of War: Judgement will have a second campaigned called “Aftermath”, and it reveals what exactly Baird and Cole got up to while Marcus was busy taking down the Locust Queen.

“We wanted to do something that added context to the game, so you had that beginning part, but then this ties everything together with the main trilogy as well,” lead level designer Jim Brown told told OXM. “So you’ll see when you go in there some people you recognise, some places, maybe even some enemies and then see how the two storylines weave together in the context of the whole franchise.
Obviously we don’t want to give away too many spoilers in how it’s going to end or what you’re going to see,” he added, “But the basic gist of it is that when they’re at the fort, Marcus sends Barrett and Cole off to find supplies and reinforcements, and then he goes off to Azura. Then at the very end they show up with helicopters. This is where they went and what they did on that mission.”
