Gears of War: Judgment

buy on Amazon:
Gears of War: Judgment Cover

This game was released on March 19, 2013. It is no longer available for pre-ordering; you can buy it normally.

Gears of War: Judgment is the newest title in the Gears of War series, and a prequel to the original trilogy. The single-player campaign focuses on the Kilo Squad which is led by Baird and Cole. The unit is charged with treason, cowardice, and desertion, and it’s up to the player to exonerate Lt. Baird and his crew. In order to achieve this you will have to play through the events leading up to the trial, uncover the truth, and hopefully justify the actions of the Kilo Squad in the court-martial. The developers call this the “Mission Declassification” system.

The multiplayer aspect of Gears of War: Judgment seems promising as well. The most interesting addition is the new class-based OverRun mode which pits COG soldiers against the Locust. Also new to the series is Free-For-All, a fast-paced deathmatch mode where every player fights for himself.

    So I bought my game, pre ordered, and I can’t find the code for my character skins. All I have is a code for two days of gold and the original gears. I don’t even have the booklet. Can someone explain and help me please.
