Gears of War: Judgment includes a new class-based game mode titled Overrun

One of the biggest news to date is the return of the 18.5 million copies sold Gears of War franchise. The new installment of the saga is titled Gears of War: Judgment and takes people back to before the first game (fourteen years to be exact) where Damon Baird is the Lieutenant of Kilo Squad. Along with Private Augustus Cole, Sofia Hendrik, and Garron Paduk, Lt. Baird and his Kilo Squad are all accused on treason shortly after a battle in Halvo Bay by Ezra Loomis. Judgment really opens up a new world to the Gears of War franchise fans by exploring more of Baird’s history and where he comes from.

Additionally for the upcoming title, the developer has introduced something entirely new to the Gears of War franchise, a class-based game mode. Overrun, the new multiplayer experience highlighted in Judgment will focus on COGS players protecting a generator, while those who play Locusts will attempt to destroy that generator. The game focuses on five-versus-five setup that allows gamers to choose the particular class they wish to be during the game. COGS have four classes: The Engineer, The Scout, The Medic, and The Soldier. The Locusts on the otherhand have a whopping eight playable types to choose from: Corpser, Ticker, Kantus, Grenadier, Serapede, Wretch, Bloodmount, and Mauler. The classes are pretty self-explanatory and are similar to those of the usual class-based multiplayer games. The Engineer of course can deploy auto-sentry guns and create fortifications, while the Medic can heal and revive fallen allies. The Soldier is able to resupply his team with ammo. Additionally, the Soldier can use Boomshot. Then the Scout is like sniper who can easily take out enemy Locusts from a distance and throw down grenades that pulse to signify if any opponents are within the grenade’s range.

The Locusts probably don’t require much explanation as probably most people are familiar with them; however to name a few, Tickers can quickly get to there destination due to their fast run speed, Corpsers can burrow, and Maulers, well, they have a huge shield and a flailing mace that you just don’t want to be in front of.
