Gears of War: Judgment pre-orders open, bonuses listed

Pre-orders open today for Gears of War: Judgment, and that means sorting out what bonuses come from which retailers. Xbox Live's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has revealed an exclusive weapon as well as several of the exclusive multiplayer skins which will reward early customers.

The Classic Hammerburst will be awarded with all pre-orders from eligible stores. The gun fires in powerful six-round bursts (you know it's science fiction because that's twice the standard three-round burst) and is said to have been standard issue for Locust infantry during their Emergence Day operations.

Meanwhile, specific retailers will offer skins for Young Marcus, Young Dom, Anya, and Alex Brand. GameStop claims the Young Marcus skin its listing, while Amazon boasts Young Dom, but retailers for the Anya and Alex Brand models remain unknown.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
