    Original “Gears of War” Games on Demand tokens will be included in early copies of “Gears of War: Judgment,” offering fans and newcomers alike a fantastic way to experience the iconic game that started it all

    Microsoft and Epic Games today unveiled a new “Gears of War: Judgment” video entitled “The Guts of Gears,” giving fans an in-depth preview of the most intense and action-packed “Gears” campaign yet in the highly anticipated blockbuster, 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.* 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.”

    *The original “Gears of War” was not sold in Germany due to ratings restrictions, and therefore is not part of this promotion. All tokens are restricted to region-specific markets and will only work in the region they were purchased in.
