Microsoft announced today that Epic Games' Gears of War: Judgment will come with a redeemable token that will allow you to download the original Gears of War. That's right, you're getting the entire first game for free! Yeesh. Seriously Microsoft, that's pretty nice of you.
But if you want to take advantage of this great offer, you will have to grab a copy of the game sooner than later. Microsoft will only include the code with "initial launch quantities" of the game. Gears of War: Judgment launches on March 19.
According to a press release from Microsoft:
Research indicates that more than half of the consumers who played Gears of War 3 did so without having experienced the original title from Epic Games. This added bonus, a $19.99 value, offers veteran fans and newcomers alike a fantastic way to re-experience the iconic game that sparked one of this generation's most beloved and critically-acclaimed franchises and connect with the prequel storyline of Gears of War: Judgment.
