In a holiday season filled with Assassin’s Creed III, Far Cry 3, and Hitman: Absolution trailers, there has been surprisingly little video released concerning Gears of War: Judgment since its announcement at this year’s E3.
Now that Halo 4 has been released, however, it appears that Epic sees the chance to finally promote its Xbox 360 exclusive, scheduled to hit store shelves on March 19, 2013. Today the company released a trailer showing off a bit of the pre-order bonuses that will be available. For starters, customers who pre-order Gears of War: Judgment will receive the classic hammerburst assault rifle as an in-game weapon.
Judgment will be the first Gears of War title not shepherded into the market by former Epic Games Design Director Cliff Bleszinski. Bleszinski, who had been a part of Epic for over two decades, left the company back in October to move on to the “next stage of his career.”
