Microsoft has released the official launch trailer for Gears of War: Judgment.
The platform holder has confirmed a Gears of War: Judgment release date of March 19, 2013 in the US and March 22 in the UK.
Gears of War: Judgment pre-orders will net users an exclusive in-game multiplayer weapon in the form of the Classic Hammerburst. Retailer exclusive pre-order incentives include GAME's Marcus multiplayer skin, Tesco's Dom multiplayer skin and Shop2's Alex Brand multiplayer skin, while other stores will be offering an Anya multiplayer skin.
Microsoft has also detailed a Gears of War: Judgment season pass, which will offer new maps and modes at a discounted price, as well as a permanent double XP boost.
The first Gears of War: Judgement DLC will be released on April 2 in the form of new maps and Execution mode.
Last month Gears of War: Judgment leaked to torrent sites. In response, Microsoft said it was working with "security teams and law enforcement to address the situation immediately" and threatened early players with Xbox Live account / Xbox 360 console bans.
