SDCC 2012: ‘Gears of War: Judgment’ Release Date Revealed, OverRun Multiplayer Detailed

Epic Games has really made their presence known at Comic-Con this year, first revealing the exact release date for Gears of War: Judgment and now introducing an entertaining tutorial video starring Baird, centered around the OverRun multiplayer mode.

First things first, Gears of War: Judgment will be released exclusively for Xbox 360 on March 19, 2013.

Overrun is best described as a hybrid cross between Gears’ Horde mode and Beast mode multiplayer modes. In this mode players will be able to choose from four classes – Engineer, Soldier, Medic and Scout – while they try to defend COG structures as the other group of players lead an onslaught as Locust characters ranging from the Ticker to the Mauler. Each character has it’s own special abilities and attacks.

The 5-minute tutorial below has Damon Baird walk us through the basics of OverRun from both sides, detailing the overall gameplay and the characters used in the all-new multiplayer mode. Epic was also nice enough to reveal details on the OverRun map, Island – an archipelago of islands off limits to civilians, where individual islands are connected by a series of bridges and tunnels.
