Gears of War: Judgment Comes with Original Gears of War

360 Gears of War

Gears of War: Judgment, the prequel to the popular shooter series, is out in just a few months. It will be the fourth game in the series, but not all fans have played them from the start. In fact, according to Epic Games, half of gamers who played Gears of War 3 had never played the original. Fans taking interest in games at later iterations is nothing new, but Epic is now offering a bonus for those players.

All launch copies of Gears of War: Judgment will come with a token to redeem the original Gears of War on Games on Demand. This requires an Xbox Live account, although it doesn't matter whether it is Silver or Gold. The download checks in at at 6.3GB download and has a value of $20, although it is easy to find the game for much cheaper.

This bonus is included with all regions except for Germany. You may remember that Gears of War was not even sold there due to its laws in regards to game violence. Gears of War: Judgment will be out on March 19th.


I can say it was true for me that I played 3 without touching 1. I kind of watched 1 being played but had no interest in playing it, dabbled in 2 for a bit, then randomly rented 3 and played through the single-player...and 3 did not really change my lack of interest (It was fine and I can understand people liking it, but it is too slow for me.). That said, it is still cool that they are doing it, kind of a un-microsoft thing actually (even if it is Epic games, I'd like to imagine Microsoft has a close grasp due to the exclusive and popular nature).
