Microsoft and Epic Games have announced the multiplayer demo as well as how to gain early access.
The demo will be available on March 19th to all Xbox LIVE Gold members but if you want early access, get down to GameStop and pre-order to get access on March 15th… If you live in the US.
“Early access on Xbox LIVE begins March 15 exclusively to GameStop PowerUp Rewards members who preorder “Judgment” online or at any GameStop location nationwide, and the demo will be accessible to all Xbox LIVE Gold members worldwide once the game launches on March 19”
The demo will feature the new game mode, Overrun, which is explained in the video below[
XP gained from the demo can be carried over to the full game provided players purchase and play Judgement on its week of release. It was also announced that two skins for use in multiplayer will be available for those who pre-order in GameStop:
- “Young Marcus” character skin – Decorated war hero Marcus Fenix is the legendary leader of Delta Squad, a small group of COG soldiers responsible for saving mankind from destruction at the hands of Locust and Lambent forces. This exclusive character skin takes Marcus back in time, six weeks after the end of the Pendulum Wars, and during the chaos of Emergence Day – a time before he was hardened by his long imprisonment.
- Lambent weapon skin – This exclusive weapon skin lets you show off your grub-slaying exploits and customize select weapons with the emulsion of your fallen Lambent foes.
Not to mention if you pre-order the game from any retailer worldwide that you will receive the Classic Hammerburst.
Gears of War: Judgement will be released exclusively to Xbox 360 on March 19th in the US and March 22nd in Europe.
