The upcoming Gears of War: Judgement will come included with a download code which enables you to download the very first game in the series for no extra charge, although this offer will be limited.

Apparently, less than half of those who played Gears of War 3 had played the original game in the series, hence the reason for this offer.

Publisher Microsoft have also revealed various pre-order deals for the game. You’ll get the Classic Hammerburst weapon, and there’s also multiplayer skins when you pre-order from select retailers. Emergence Day Marcus will come with GAME pre-orders for example, while Emergence Day Dom will be available to those who pre-order from Tesco, and Alex Brand comes with ShopTo pre-orders. Finally, Anya will also be available from certain retailers.

Gears of War: Judgement is a prequel set before the events of any of the previous games in the series, and features the characters of Damon Baird and Augustus “Cole Train” Cole. The game is set for release on Xbox 360 on March 19th.
