Microsoft releases "The Guts of War" video. Confirms Gears Judgment will include downloadable Gears 1 copy

Microsoft and Epic Games released a new video today, entitled "The Guts of War". Fans will be ecstatic to get a deeper look at the newest Gears of War campaign, developed by People Can Fly and Epic Games Inc.. Narrated by the ever sarcastic Damon Baird, fan favorite extraordinaire, the video gives players a sneak peek at some of the new campaign features, including dynamic Smart Spawn Systems, declassified missions, new weapons, player rewards, and much more.

Also announced today, Gears of War: Judgment will include a download for Gears of War, the original game that started it all, accessible through Games on Demand. According to Epic, about half of the players who purchased Gears 3 had never played Gears 1. This is a way for gamers to get a deeper understanding of the story. These downloads will be included in the initial launch quantities, so you will need to make sure Judgment is a day 1 purchase. If you cannot get a code, Gears 1 can be purchased from the marketplace for $19.99. This inclusion will allow new players to immerse themselves in the Gears Universe, while also allowing old-time veterans a chance to relive the glory days.

Unfortunately, due to the restrictions in Germany regarding video game ratings, the Gears 1 download will not be available. The first Gears game did not make it to Germany, so most players would need to buy a physical copy, possibly online.

Gears of War: Judgment launches worldwide on March 19th, 2013
