The previously announced pre-order incentive for the rest of the world has been confirmed for South Africa too.
If you pre-order Gears of War: Judgment from one of the participating retailers, you will receive a Games on Demand download token for the big daddy of the serious – the original “Gears of War”.
South Africans still to play – or even re-play this classic – can pre-order from the following to get their incentive:
- BT Games
As per the tip from jGLZA below, Games On is also offering the incentive, along with offering the Classic Hammerburst and Young Dom listed as pre-order incentives. Microsoft/Xbox SA has confirmed that the incentives will be available at “most major ones” [retailers], but recommend you confirm with your preferred retailer.
The Classic Hammerburst was the standard-issue assault rifle of the Locust Army. Originally, it was designed to deliver a six-shot burst, which helped give the Locust a decisive edge during Emergence Day. Now this highly feared and effective weapon is exclusively yours when you pre-order Gears of War: Judgement.
Best friend of Marcus Fenix and a cherished hero of Delta Squad, Dominic “Dom” Santiago made a pivotal sacrifice in the war against the Locust Horde and will be forever remembered for his bravery. With this character skin, you can play as Dom as he was at the time of Emergence Day, six weeks after his role in the brutal Pendulum Wars had come to an end. This exclusive character skin is for use in competitive multiplayer matches in Gears of War: Judgement.
The good guys over at the clan Crimson Moon Rising have compiled this rather useful list of retailers and their prices and incentives for Gears of War: Judgment. Thanks chaps.
