Gears of War: Judgment Multiplayer Demo Coming March

Posted on January 28, 2013 AT 07:27am

Microsoft has announced that a Gears of War: Judgment demo will be available on the same day as the game’s U.S. release.

The demo will be available from March 19 and includes the new multiplayer mode OverRun, an objective-based mode in which two teams of five play as either the Locust or COG, each as a different character class.

GameStop PowerUp Rewards members who pre-order the game will gain early access to the demo from Match 15. According to Microsoft, all multiplayer experience points earned will carry over as long as you purchase the full game and play online within the first week of sale. GameStop pre-orders also receive two bonus items:

  • Young Marcus” character skin - “Decorated war hero Marcus Fenix is the legendary leader of Delta Squad, a small group of COG soldiers responsible for saving mankind from destruction at the hands of Locust and Lambent forces. This exclusive character skin takes Marcus back in time, six weeks after the end of the Pendulum Wars, and during the chaos of Emergence Day – a time before he was hardened by his long imprisonment.”
  • Lambent weapon skin - “This exclusive weapon skin lets you show off your grub-slaying exploits and customize select weapons with the emulsion of your fallen Lambent foes.”

Gears of War: Judgment is scheduled to release March 19 in the U.S. and March 22 in Europe.
