SDCC: More fun times with GoW: Judgment's Overun mode photo
SDCC: More fun times with GoW: Judgment's Overun mode
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Gears of War: Judgment is bringing with it a new multiplayer mode called Overrun. It's a first for Gears as the mode focuses on class-based gameplay, with a major focus on teamwork. While I dug what I played at E3, it turns out there's a lot more to it than I previously thought.

Epic showed off a full version of the gametype during Comic-Con, which sees COG players defending multiple objective points against the Locust. We played on a new map called Island, and it looked to be at least three times the size of the Rooftop map we last saw. Both maps, by the way, are based on levels from the main campaign.

The Locust team needs to destroy an objective point defended by the COG team within a set amount of time. If they succeed, a new section of the map opens with a new objective on the line. There's a total of three sections to the map, each with its own point that needs to be defended or destroyed. COG soldiers will get some minor assistance further into a level as more fortifications get put into place. Granted, fortification meant nothing to me as I wrecked things up with the Corpser on the Locust side.
