the fact that they are offering a permanent 2x XP boost makes me wonder if its gonna take forever to reach the max level/prestige without it...

Permanent 2X XP? Surely that's paying for a permanent advantage into the game?

LMAO "two new modes"... and How much do you want to bet those are the modes that all the hardcore players are asking for (i.e. Guardian). I see what you did Epic, milk your hardcore players while casuals buy the streamlined game experience.

Not falling for it. My advance copy of Gears Judgment is already collecting dust. I'm already back on Gears 1 and 3.

Stay Classy Epic.

After the last season pass I don't really know what to expect? 1600 points is tempting a little. But I don't even know if I'm getting the game yet?

For those who've not heard there is also a free map pack coming from Maxim. It is launching for free on April 2nd and is NOT part of the season pass and contains 2 maps Haven and Capitol, and brings back Execution(with DBNO).

I bought the Gears of War 3 season pass and it was the only pass I've ever been happy purchasing and for that I'll be buying this pass as well.

We can clearly see this is just a filler for the next installment in the Gears series which I imagine will be announced at the 720's announcement conference thingy because of the lack of hype it has (Judgment) received compared to the other games and also the fact it isn't being considered a massive launch for the 360 as a console. It also isn't releasing worldwide on the same day, to me that says a lot. I notice it's also only releasing two map packs? that's not the Epic I know.

I do not like this game - To much of an advantage for those who will pay?! When did purchasing double XP become a thing. I'm not boycotting the franchise as I love the gears games. However cant afford it anyway and this for some reason has put me off getting as soon as I can, when I no they sell and get away with this shit!

Also is it impossible for these fucking developers to put everything on this disc at launch?! Oh wait my bad, they're on this disc...they're just locked until they see fit to charge you an extra $20 Bucks! Fucking appalling!

Was a huge Gears fan but I won't be buying this.

I felt let down with Gears 3. Not the game, which I enjoyed, but how they approached and charged for DLC (or Disk Locked Content).

@14: THIS. surprised it's not mentioned in the above article but there's to maps (Haven and Capitol) plus the Execution game mode coming in a free DLC shortly after release. Thanks to some funding from the people at...MAXIM. Yeah. Them. People can stop crying about the lack of single-life elimination game modes now.

@15: STFU

For the people claiming this is an 'advantage', can you show me evidence that this game will have an unlocking system for weapons/attachments/perks ala CoD and completely unlike all three previous GoW titles, because this x2 is only going to increase a number next to your name and make the MP prestiging achievements easier.
Also look up the definition of advantage before using it again. Ta.

I don't think 2x permanent is that big of an advantage. Hell, Gears of War 3 had had 4x exp running for awhile now and it recently went up to 8x exp. And don't even get me started on the events in Gears of War 2. It really is only a slight advantage, by Gears of War standards.

@20 - This is my opnion, I think It gives certain people an advantage of earning extra XP (and ranking up faster) from the offset to those that are not willing to spend an extra $20. The people that don't buy it are probably better at the game, yet they won't be at the rank they should be cause some people are getting x2XP. It's an advantage of the leader boards which I think sucks. I could play the same amount of games as a player with x2xp on and I could do better in every game - however he would beat me on the leaderboards because of this = An advantage.

Boom! Biatch.

I don't understand how this has become part of a season pass?! It double xp, these are events that should be open to everyone, not those with the cash!

P.s. - Thx 360 org for the good review of tomb raider. Always guarenteed an honest review. :)

dunno why people are so upset about the double xp, just means you spend less time playing gamr, u don't get an advantage by ranking up, it should have been at most 1500 points i think anything less than 25% off isn't really worth it considering theres going to be an inevitable sale of 50% off

I can't believe they are pretty much selling 2xp. I wonder what the two new modes will be. Peter Knepley already announced on twitter earlier today that execution will be coming back. I hope they don't pull the same move they did with gears 3 where you need all dlc to play on servers then have no variety in games modes. Seriously, they brought back guardian and then it isn't even on the forces of nature playlist anymore. All it has now is execution, classic and wingman.

How the Christ is getting 2x XP an ADVANTAGE, people? HOW? What does it allow someone to do that gives them an advantage over YOU if YOU don't have it?

Acquiring an achievement faster?

Folks leveling 2x faster than you doesn't make it any easier for them to kill you.

Jesus Christ, folks. You're fucking stupid.

@18 You hit the nail on the head there.

I'm sick of this business model of games. It's a perfectly sound model for a business but as a consumer it's not in keeping with "The customer comes first". You invest in a game on release day these days and 6 months down the line you find yourself only owning half of it. I see this becoming even worse with the new console. I think the next year or two will decide if this is the point in my life where I say: No, I'm cashing out, I'm done with gameing. No longer is it about making a solid game, it's about making a profitable product - the true quality of which is secondary to it's money making potential.

Count me out.

This is one of the worst games made.
being a fan of the gears of war series and being a fan of epic im suprised im saying this.

They destroyed the multiplayer they also destroyed alot about the game in general.

Using the y button to select things is dumb
starting with frags is dumb
not being able to tag a frag to the wall is dumb
no execution is dumb
blue cog vs red cog is the most retarted thing ever they just ruined the game right there.
no capture the leader guardian king of the hill annex none of that
AND DBNO that was a big disapoinment too its supose to be a team game im not playing halo or call of duty.
Gears of war 3 was perfect my favorite game ever made why did people can fly have to come and destroy it.
oh and using lb to throw a grenade is stupid to.

I don't get why people don't like season passes. Would they rather pay full price instead of 20% off? Or do they not want any DLC altogether and have the game delayed several months for it to be included with the rest of the game?

DLC is optional. Don't buy it if you don't want it.

I think the main question is how will Epic handle the servers. They talked up the famed dedicated multiplayer servers, and then those who did not purchase the Fenix Rising DLC had to revert back to host matchmaking, because they moved dedicated servers to those only with the DLC. And I bought that Season Pass and the map packs weren't that impressive.

This makes me wonder if I have permanent double XP and there's a double XP weekend, do I get 4x or 2x? If it's 4x, I will consider it as that will make the prestige achievements that much faster, but if it's not, I will just wait for the double, triple XP weekends.

After all the crap with Gears 3 I am never supporting Epic Games again.

I have been completely reset twice on Gears 3, once as a 100 Green and again as a 5X Red, all because of their shitty programming and lack of support. Luckily I have backups in place otherwise I wouldn't have touched Gears 3 again. I was reset from Gold wings in Gears 2 and never touched it again after that.

Let's not even get into the clusterluck that was 'Socialite', one of the biggest pressing issues of Gears 3, which was only 'fixed' recently by giving all players 29 events automatically because well it's better to just say fuck it then to actually fix their game, right?

I actually wasn't planning on getting this game's season pass since Gears 3's season pass/some season pass content went on sale numerous times, but double experience and early access is a pretty good bonus... also the special unlocks. We'll see how I like the game first.

£15 seems a little steep for some maps and a couple of new modes. Will probably just pick up the game first and if I become hooked I'll go from there. That said the only Gears I really enjoyed online was the first one so I'm not holding my breath :(

1600 is a pretty fair price, but I will probably pick it up when it's on sale

#27 has the correct idea, for those who want dlc for this game. pre order from the microsoft store, get the free 1600 points, use that to buy the season pass

So many sheeps in here. It took someone to sponsor Execution because they know this game will be garbage without it. But seriously even with the free map pack two weeks after release, were still looking at only 5-6 mp maps... Thats sad. This game is nothing but a change to get paid before the new xbox comes out and shits on backwards compatibility. No go

still not sure if I will get this game, but if I did I won't be getting the season pass as I wasn't that impressed with the one for Gears 3. although its nice to see that the price isn't 2400pts like so many season passes seem to be

It's getting difficult to be a fan of a series like Gears (which don't get me wrong I love Gears) but when they start taking stuff from the final game slapping a price on it and calling it DLC. This game is clearly just like ODST which was a stepping stone for Reach so Judgment is obviously a stepping stone for a next gen Gears game made by Epic not People Can Fly. I will still be getting this as it looks interesting but damn is getting expensive to be a gamer these days...

This is awesome! Map packs are normally 800 each so it looks like we're getting The other stuff for free really :) If you don't have a problem with DLC then you shouldn't be complaining about season passes

2 new modes ?? if we buy the game and then they offer us new modes shouldn't they be free so we carry on playing it, i bet ANNEX with execution rules as 1 of those game modes, i will not be getting the season pass, i got the 1 for gears 3 and hardly played it, kind of lost interest in the series after gears2

@31 no offense bro but u r a moron.saying that ppl have an advantage for having 2x xp in GEARS is DUMB.this isn't COD.u don't unlock anything in gears that AFFECTS GAMEPLAY.u unlock visual things and nothing more.oh and never has the amount of xp u get directly translated to the score u have on the leaderboards.

this is my bigger point.INSISTING THAT PPL WITH HIGHER RANKS R BETTER PLAYERS IS THE MOST OVER STATED OPINION IN GAMING.Aside from the true skill ranking that gears 2 TRIED to implement,RANKS R ONLY A REFLECTION OF HOW MUCH U PLAY.NOT HOW GOOD U PLAY.According to your logic a guy with say a 50 rank is ALWAYS going to be better than some1 who is a 20 rank.any gamer who knows his/her stuff will tell u that's just not true.

Match up someone in judgement(when it ships)who has never played any gears game b4 thats a 50 against someone whose a 20 rank that's played gears1,2,and 3.....see if the 50 rank wins everytime.....moron.

I dont care if i'm called stupid or not, but I got the VIP Seasons pass and am getting GoWJ on the release date. Reasons being these:

You'll only get all of these bonuses and it will only cost $20 before the games out.
Double XP is an added bonus, which I didn't even notice when I first looked. (By the way, how is this an advantage?)
You get all the maps before they're out, and for free.
You get more character skins and weapon skins.
20% discount on all other camos and such
Its only 1600 MSP, which i'm getting from Microsoft when the game comes out anyways.

I dont see anything wrong with this and just think the double xp isn't the biggest deal and that I'd rather pay $20 now then $30 later. (Chances are the price on the seasons pass will be raised, and the DLC will be $15 each. Also, if you get the seasons pass after the games out, its not VIP, you don't get as much stuff and it will cost more.)
