Gears of War Judgment multiplayer demo dated: early access for GameStop pre-orders

Gears of War: Judgment is getting a demo in March, courtesy of Epic Games and Microsoft. It's a multiplayer demo focused on the game's OverRun mode, and if you pre-order from GameStop you can get it early.

Microsoft's Major Nelson posted the news on his blog, and explained that anyone pre-ordering Gears of War: Judgment through GameStop's 'PowerUp Rewards' will get the demo on March 15th via Xbox Live Gold. Everyone else must wait until March 19th to play.

Specially, early access will run between March 15 at 11:59 pm PT and Monday, March 18 at 11:59pm PT. No European early access has been revealed yet.

All XP earned during early access and the demo will carry over into the full game when it launches.

Nelson says of OverRun mode, "OverRun is a thrilling new class-based competitive mode that pits Locust and COG soldiers in a head-to-head battle unlike anything “Gears” fans have experienced yet. An objective-oriented mode that lets five-player teams alternate between playing as Locusts and COG soldiers, OverRun marks the first time that a class-based, competitive multiplayer experience has been introduced in the “Gears of War” series."
