Are your locust-slicing tendencies reaching an uncontrollable state? Lucky for you, UK retailer GAME and games media behemoth IGN have partnered up for a series of events that will give gamers the chance to experience Gears of War: Judgement ahead of its March 22nd release date. Well, three hours early at least.
To soak up some extra playtime ahead of your common man, you’ll have to pre-order the title at GAME and be chosen as one of the 40 lucky winners, who will be invited to a participating store with two friends, to get a head-start on the game. You will be given the opportunity to cloud save your progress and there will also be free food and drink on offer. Not only that, but you will also walk away with a copy of the game without paying a single penny. The Cole Train would be proud.
If you aren’t so lucky, then your pre-order will still entitle you to some exclusive bonus content. This includes the classic Hammerburst weapon for use in-game and the Emergence Day Young Marcus Fenix character skin, that isn’t available anywhere else. Everyone wins!
This event takes place simultaneously across the ten stores listed below, from 9pm Thursday the 21st of March.
· London – Stratford Westfield
· Manchester – Trafford Centre
· Glasgow – Glasgow Fort
· Birmingham – Bullring
· Liverpool – Lord Street
· Sheffield – Fargate

· Leeds – White Rose
