Amid a firestorm of holiday launches, gamers are already looking ahead to spring 2013 as Microsoft and Epic Games today released the official Gears of War: Judgment box art and kicked off pre-orders at participating retailers.
The next installment to the Xbox 360 franchise that’s sold more than 19 million units and defined a generation of action games, 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 at participating retailers 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. Additional incentives will be available from participating retailers in the coming weeks, including exclusive multiplayer character skins Young Marcus, Young Dom, Anya and Alex Brand.
