Mark your calendar for the 19th of March Gear-heads because Epic games is putting out a multiplayer demo for Gears of War: Judgment on Xbox Live for you all to play. Of course, if you are Gamestop’s Power Up Rewards member who pre-order the game, then you get early access to the demo on March 15th instead. Lucky you, I suppose.

The demo is also a test run for the new multiplayer mode OverRun, an objective based game type where one team of five are Locust and one side are COG soldiers, each playing as different character classes.

As for you super competitive types, you’ll be happy to hear that all points you acquire in the first week of playing the Gears of War: Judgment demo will carry over to the full game.

Gamestop US costumers will also receive two exclusive pre-order bonuses:

“Young Marcus” character skin – “Decorated war hero Marcus Fenix is the legendary leader of Delta Squad, a small group of COG soldiers responsible for saving mankind from destruction at the hands of Locust and Lambent forces. This exclusive character skin takes Marcus back in time, six weeks after the end of the Pendulum Wars, and during the chaos of Emergence Day – a time before he was hardened by his long imprisonment.”

Lambent weapon skin – “This exclusive weapon skin lets you show off your grub-slaying exploits and customize select weapons with the emulsion of your fallen Lambent foes.”

UK  pre-roder bonuses are GAME’s Marcus multiplayer skin, Tesco’s Dom multiplayer skin and Shop2’s Alex Brand multiplayer skin. Other stores will be offering an Anya multiplayer skin and everyone who orders worldwide will receive the classic Hammerburst.

Gears of War: Judgment is be released March 19th in the US and March 22 in the UK.
