Do you fancy playing upcoming prequel Gears of War: Judgment early, but won't be able to make it to any of the exclusive GAME lock-in events taking place throughout February? Don't fret - you'll still get a chance to try before you buy thanks to a downloadable demo.
The 2Gb demo will be available from March 19th, three days ahead of the game's retail release. You'll need Xbox LIVE Gold Membership to download it. The demo contains the multiplayer Overrun mode, a class-based team game that has been compared to multiplayer online battle arena (or MOBA) games such as League of Legends. Generously, any XP you earn while playing the demo can be carried over into the full game, provided you pick it up in the week of release.
Gears of War: Judgment drops for Xbox 360 on March 22nd. Check with your local GAME store to take part in the special lock-in preview events, which kick off from February 3rd.
