Gears of War: Judgment demo announced

Out three days before game launches in the UK.

A Gears of War: Judgment demo launches for Xbox Live Gold members on 19th March, Epic Games has announced.

That's the day the game launches in the US. It launches in the UK on Friday 22nd March. You'll need a Gold membership and 2GB of storage space to download OverRun.

Meanwhile, Epic announced a US-only offer to get three-day early access to the OverRun mode. Pre-order with GameStop and the multiplayer mode unlocks on 15th March.

Experience points will carry over for players who play Judgment in the first week following its US release.

OverRun is the new class-based competitive mode for Gears of War. Five-player teams play for objectives in a mode that has been likened to League of Legends.

Those who pre-order with GameStop get two exclusive skins, the Young Marcus character skin and the Lambent weapon skin. Pre-order from any retailer worldwide and you get the Classic Hammerburst.
