Get a Gears of War: Judgment Overrun tutorial from Baird

Gears of War: Judgment focuses on Cpl. Damon Baird, so it's fitting that he's the one who narrates this video tutorial for Overrun, a multiplayer mode that's new to the franchise.

Epic Games showed the tutorial at its "Gears of War: Past, Present, and Future" San Diego Comic-Con panel, which included Baird voice actor Frank Tatasciore. The tutorial provides a comprehensive explanation of the class-based mode, which sees a human team try to defend a generator from attacking Locust.

The panelists provided some personal tips: Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski suggested playing as a Ticker and flanking a preoccupied human team, while director of production Rod Fergusson explained how a Grenadier and three Tickers can make headway — the Grenadier can throw out grenades that the Ticker can swallow, which turns the little beasts into effective suicide bombers.

Epic also provided some screenshots of a newly revealed Overrun map, Island, which we've made available in the gallery below.

Gears of War: Judgment, which is in development at People Can Fly and Epic Games, will launch exclusively for Xbox 360 on March 19, 2013.
