Gears of War: Judgement To Be Bundled With The Original
Some Retailers To Get Pre-Order Bonuses Too
Gears of War: Judgement, the next entry in the Gears of War series, will come with a code allowing players to download the classic original for free from Xbox LIVE (except for Germany where the first two games are banned).
The offer is limited to the initial launch copies of the game, and Microsoft said the offer was inspired by research which found that less than half of people who played Gears of War 3 had never played the first.
The original Gears of War was a massive success for the Xbox 360 and was the console’s best selling game until the release of Halo 3 in 2007 and has subsequently spawned two sequels and the upcoming Judgement which is a prequel to the original trilogy.
In addition to this, it was announced that people who pre-order the game from GAME, Tesco and ShopTo will receive exclusive access to certain characters.
Gears of War: Judgement is due out later this year.
