Gears of War Judgment Gameplay Video Reveals Class Based Overrun
Gears of War Judgment made its world premiere with the E3 trailer. Now the world gets to see a little bit of gameplay.
The goal for Epic Games is to provide a prequel story featuring a younger Lt. Baird and Cole Train in Kilo Squad. The gameplay is supposed to be more open and less scripted.
The video also reveals Overrun which is essentially a class based Horde style of game known as Overrun. Gears play defense and Locust attack. The COGs have engineers, medics, scouts, or soldiers. These classes will be familiar to some gamers as engineers will be the fortification repairers, medics will be the healers, able to throw stim-gas grenades and revive teammates, scouts can climb areas for sniping and throw tag grenades, and soldiers will be able to drop ammo and carry boomshots. Horde players can control Tickers, Wretches, Grenadiers, Kantus, Bloodmount, Corpsers, Maulers, and Serapedes. They also will have their own special abilities such as Kantus healing or burrowing with Corpsers.
Now you’ve got your Horde and Beast modes in one.
