Gears of War: Judgment details from Comic-Con include new game mode and March 2013 release
Epic Games reveals some new details regarding the upcoming Gears of War: Judgment game for the Xbox 360 with one being the debut of a brand new game mode and the other being an actual release date.
The new game mode is called "Overrun" and is an online class-based multiplayer mode. The mode pits two teams with one controlling the COG who have to defend certain areas and the Locust who have to destroy those areas with maps based on the single player campaign.
Each map is divided into 3 sections which open up once a current object is reached by either the Locust or COG team with the COGs getting the benefit of extra fortifications and help as the round goes on. The Locust side do get access to "Tier 2" characters once enough points are earned which are called "Corpsers" who are extra over-powered characters to the point of almost ensuring victory once they are unlocked.
The other detail revealed by Epic Games is the official release date will be in March 2013 which confirms earlier rumors of the game arriving before the end of the fiscal year for both Epic Games and Microsoft. No actual release date was announced but it is expected to be revealed later this year.
