Amid a firestorm of holiday launches, gamers are already looking ahead to spring 2013 as Microsoft and Epic Games today released the official “Gears of War: Judgment”1 box art and kicked off pre-orders at participating retailers2.

The next marque instalment to the Xbox 360 franchise that’s sold more than 19 million units and defined a generation of action games, “Gears of War: Judgment” takes fans back to the immediate aftermath of Emergence Day with the most intense “Gears” game yet.

Starting today, fans who pre-order “Gears of War: Judgment” at participating retailers will receive an exclusive in-game multiplayer weapon at launch, the Classic Hammerburst, along with potential retailer-specific content3.

Now this highly feared and effective weapon is exclusively yours to wield when you pre-order “Gears: Judgment.” Check out a new video of the Classic Hammerburst in action here: http://www.youtube.com/user/hryb
