Microsoft and Epic Games today unveiled a new Gears of War: Judgment video titled “The Guts of Gears,” giving fans an in-depth preview of the most intense and action-packed Gears campaign yet in the highly anticipated game, which launches worldwide on March 19, 2013. Narrated by the game’s hero and fan-favorite character Lt. Baird, the video offers a sneak peek at the wealth of exciting new campaign features, including the dynamic Smart Spawn System, new weapons, dynamic defense scenarios, Declassified Missions, new player rewards, and more.
Additionally, Microsoft and Epic Games also announced that initial launch quantities of Gears of War: Judgment will include a Games on Demand Xbox LIVE download token for the epic game that started it all, Gears of War, in all worldwide regions except Germany due to restrictions. All tokens are restricted to region-specific markets and will only work in the region they were purchased in.
Research indicates that more than half of the consumers who played Gears of War 3 did so without having experienced the original title from Epic Games. This added bonus, a $19.99 value, offers veteran fans and newcomers alike a fantastic way to re-experience the iconic game that sparked one of this generation’s most beloved and critically-acclaimed franchises and connect with the prequel storyline of Gears of War: Judgment.
