Gears of War: Judgment Unlockables & Special Event

By Ashley Woodcock, 5 years ago
With North Americans possibly sat outside their local retailer right now, the release of Epic Games' Gears of War: Judgment is a mere few hours away! The rest of the world still has a few days to wait yet, but either way, these two new trailers and screens will be beneficial for all. We covered the details on pre-order bonuses at the beginning of the year. Epic Games have released a new trailer that serves as a guide for pre-orders but more importantly, the video features details on the unlocks for those purchasing the VIP Season Pass.

Check out the first trailer that showcases many different weapon skins that can be unlocked, as well as armour that can also be unlocked for the characters to be featured in the game:

Impressed with the Big Game Skin variant of the Lancer? Then those planning on purchasing the Brady Games Guide along with Gears of War: Judgment may want to take a closer look at the animalistic piece of weaponry with this screen:

Many long-time Gears grinders will remember (or still be going through) the pain, suffering, joy, and time consumption of the special events from Gears of War 3 where players needed to participate in a total of 30 events in order to unlock the Socialite achievement. The special events will be back in full-force with Gears of War: Judgment and Epic Games have already detailed the twists, turns, and changes to come with the first event for the title.

The first event will be specifically available in the game mode 'Domination', where players will only be able to use the Breechshot and Spot Grenades as they fight the good fight and acquire a ribbon towards the Sybarite achievement.

Looking for more challenges? Want to earn yourself another skin and a medal too? Then hunting for a reaper during the upcoming weeks might be the thrill you need. The Reaper comes with special abilities and is much tougher than your average enemy to kill. Community members of the Epic Forums will be donning the reaper skin as one member will be chosen each week. Game developers from Epic will also be wearing the skin too. Successfully killing a Reaper will award you with an exclusive weapon skin and a medal, so be on the look out community Reapers, and also a few gamertags from the Epic Games staff members themselves:

• EpicGowJ
• GearsReaper2
• GearsReaper3
• Raczilla
• Fl4k
GoW:J Reaper

Anyone who participates in the event between March 19th and March 28th will receive the Team Pulse weapon skin.

Gears of War: Judgment will be available now/very soon for North America, and a little bit longer for Australia. Europe will have to be very patient and sit tight for the game's release until March 22nd.
