Ready your Lancers and prepare to jump back into the fight, Gear-heads! To equip fans for the impending launch of “Gears of War: Judgment” on March 19, Epic Games and Microsoft today premiered a new cinematic trailer showcasing the intense, grub-stomping action and thrilling gameplay of this spring’s most hotly anticipated blockbuster.
Featuring the hit single “Shooting the Moon” from acclaimed UK band Mona, the trailer offers a glimpse of “Judgment’s” heart-pounding campaign and embodies the bold defiance, bravery and heroism of fan-favorite Damon Baird and Kilo Squad as they face an unjust trial and fight to rescue the planet Sera from the brink of annihilation. The trailer was rendered entirely in-engine on Unreal Engine 3, showcasing the stunning graphics of the most visually spectacular “Gears” game yet.
“‘Judgment’ is a tribute to the die-hard ‘Gears’ fans who have been with us since the beginning and an amazing experience for anyone who loves intense action and gripping, cinematic storytelling,” said Alan Van Slyke, Senior Producer of “Gears of War: Judgment” at Epic Games. “Thanks to the support of partners at People Can Fly, we’ve pushed the ‘Gears’ franchise in all-new directions while bringing back some of the key elements that put us on the map, and we can’t wait to share it with the world on March 19.”
“Gears of War” fans in the United States will be able to join the fight against the Locust Horde early through the signature new multiplayer mode in “Gears of War: Judgment,” OverRun. Early access on Xbox LIVE begins March 15 exclusively to GameStop PowerUp Rewards™ members who preorder “Judgment” online or at any U.S. GameStop location nationwide, and the demo will be accessible to all Xbox LIVE Gold members worldwide once the game launches on March 19.
