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 instalment of the Xbox 360 franchise that’s sold more than nineteen million units, Gears of War: Judgment takes fans back to the immediate aftermath of Emergence Day.
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 of War: Judgment. 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 favourite videogame retailer’s site for more information, and stay tuned to Electronic Theatre in the coming months for more news on Gears of War: Judgment.
