The promised Gears of War: Judgment multiplayer demo is now available on Xbox LIVE, Microsoft has announced.

Available to all Xbox LIVE Gold members, the OverRun demo gives players the chance to sample the all-new mode, carrying over any earned XP to the full game if purchased within the first week of release.

OverRun is an objective-oriented class-based mode that lets five-player teams alternate between playing as Locusts and COG soldiers.

Gears of War: Judgment launches in the UK on Friday, but you can read our review now.
