Multiplayer Demo Confirmed + XP Carries Over to Full Game

Quote:
Gears of War: Judgment is getting a demo in March, courtesy of Epic Games and Microsoft. It’s a multiplayer demo focused on the game’s OverRun mode, and if you pre-order from GameStop you can get it early.


Microsoft’s Major Nelson posted the news on his blog, and explained that anyone pre-ordering Gears of War: Judgment through GameStop’s ‘PowerUp Rewards’ will get the demo on March 15th via Xbox Live Gold. Everyone else must wait until March 19th to play.
Specially, early access will run between March 15 at 11:59 pm PT and Monday, March 18 at 11:59pm PT. No European early access has been revealed yet.
All XP earned during early access and the demo will carry over into the full game when it launches.
Bring it on! I'll be looking at pre-ordering for the sake of gaining early access and getting whatever I possibly can to help towards any achievement(s).

I think the MS preorder of a free 1600MSP is a much better deal. You get a demo for three days.

This. Those 1600 could go towards buying the games Season Pass (assuming there is one) or could get you a game such as The Cave. Much better deal than 3 extra days playing OverRun.

Enjoy your Young Marcus and 3-Day OVERRUN demo, GameStop shoppers.

(It's not "Versus multiplayer" that you guys are used to, it's just Overrun (COG vs Locust defense). Just to clear what the articles highlight.)


EDIT:

Regarding the "Lambent" Weapon Skin:

Quote:
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.
(Source: http://epicgames.com/community/2013/...-early-access/)

No pics yet, probably going to end up looking similar to the Imulsion set from Gears 3

Huh. A weapon skin that was used in a previous game? How original.

I plan on buying it from MS cause its like paying $40 with the points.

Oh great, this is the beginning of another Gears game with 100 different skins that all look ridiculous and cost way too much. The more I think about it the more I'm convinced I'm going to pass up on this game.

You realize you don't need to buy any of the skins right? They don't effect anything, or give you an advantage, or make other players jealous, they just make your gun look a little different. You can play the game perfectly fine without them, and using them as an excuse not to buy the game is pathetic.

Its still multiplayer though, even if it is just one game type.

Hopefully I'll actually play the demo/beta for multiplayer this time instead of missing it like with Gears 3. I missed out on Coles' skin because of it, worst mistake ever!

My God. I hate reading posts like this; they are popping up all over now.

"ZOMGBBQ MICROTRANSACTIONS IN A GAMEZ IM DONEZ WIFF DA GAMEZ FOREVERZ."

Seriously, no one makes you purchase the skins nor do they cause anyone to have an advantage in-game. So WTF is the point of making a post like that?

So, when is GameStop going to give out these early access codes? I went to the GameStop from which I preordered my copy, and they didn't know anything about it.

Presumably, on Friday(or Friday-ish) through the PowerUp Rewards e-mail address you've given GameStop. (That's what I heard a looooooong time ago anyway.)

so like a double cheeseburger or a big mac?

while i think microtransactions are for fools, and their inclusion in dead space 3 was absolutely ridiculous, this metaphor/analogy is entirely broken.

A better example would be a choice involving paying for colored hamburger buns when you order a meal at a fast-food joint. It sounds crazy, it's unnecessary, and if given the "choice"; it should be free.


I'm all for business opportunities, but with Dead Space 3's shameless "MK-V" weapons upgrades/resources, Call of Duty's customizations, and now the armor skins which could've made Judgment's rewards system last longer than a week- you can see the slippery slope. :/

I asked a "friend" that works at GS and they read the info straight from the PC screen stating an email wil be sent either the 14th or 15th to your email listed in your Power Up Rewards account. IF you DO NOT recieve an email, you may go the store Mar 16th and they can print it on a reciept.
