Gears of War: Judgment Pre-Orders Kick Off Today

Xbox 360

Put down Halo 4 for five minutes and listen up – amid a firestorm of holiday launches, Microsoft and Epic Games today released the official “Gears of War: Judgment” box art and kicked off pre-orders at participating gaming retailers.

The next marque instalment to the Gears of War franchise, “Gears of War: Judgment” takes fans back to the immediate aftermath of Emergence Day with the most intense “Gears” game yet. Starting today, fans who pre-order “Gears of War: Judgment” will receive an exclusive in-game multiplayer weapon at launch, the Classic Hammerburst, along with potential retailer-specific content.

The Classic Hammerburst was the standard-issue assault rifle of the Locust Army during their E-Day onslaught. Highly accurate with a six-round burst, the Classic Hammerburst helped give the Locust a decisive advantage. Now this highly feared and effective weapon is exclusively yours to wield when you pre-order “Gears: Judgment.”

Check out a new video of the Classic Hammerburst in action below:

Additional incentives will be available from participating UK retailers, including exclusive multiplayer character skins Young Marcus, Young Dom, Anya and Alex Brand. Please visit your favorite game retailer’s site for more information, and stay tuned in the coming months for more news on “Gears of War: Judgment.”

Developed exclusively for Xbox 360 by Epic Games and People Can Fly, “Gears of War: Judgment” launches worldwide starting March 19th, 2013.
