Microsoft have released the TV commercial for Gears of War: Judgment, ahead of its release later this month.
Set before the events of the original trilogy, Gears of War: Judgment focuses on the efforts of Kilo Squad, during the immediate aftermath of Emergence Day. Fan-favourites Damon Baird and August “The Cole Train” Cole return, whilst newcomers Sofia Hendricks and Garron Paduk join the fray, as they attempt to save the besieged city of Halvo Bay
Whereas previous instalments in the Gears of War saga were developed by Epic Games, this year’s Gears of War: Judgment is being helmed by People can Fly (Bulletstorm); after they were bought out by Epic.
Last month Microsoft announced that Gears of War: Judgment will receive a VIP Season Pass, allowing players to get the “leg up on the competition.” It will provide a 20% discount across a broad range of content including six multiplayer maps, two new modes and nine exclusive unlocks. Those looking to purchase the pass will have to part with 1600 MS Points.
As an additional incentive to purchase the game new, Microsoft and Epic Games will be bundling a digital copy – redeemable via Xbox Live Games on Demand – of the original Gears of War with Judgment.
Gears of War: Judgment is out on March 19 in North America and March 22 in Europe exclusively on Xbox 360.
