Gears of War: Judgment, one of the most anticipated games for Xbox 360 shows up on torrent sites a month before it's release date.
Microsoft Corp. has promised “vigorous action” after the latest Gears of War games leaked online more than a month before its release date.
Copies of Gear of War: Judgment, a prequel to the events of 2006's Gears of War begins, began showing up on torrent sites overnight.
“We are aware of isolated cases in which Gears of War: Judgment content has been propped on the web and are working closely with our security teams and law enforcement to address the situation immediately,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Eurogamer on Tuesday morning.
“Consumers should be aware that piracy is illegal and we take vigorous action against illegal activity related to our products and services.”
This is the second high-profile game in less than five months to leak online prior to launch.
In October, copies of Halo 4 were also spotted on torrent websites before launch
Gears of War: Judgment, the most intense and challenging "Gears" game yet, just got even more amped as Microsoft and Epic Games revealed a brand new exhilarating mode, Free-For-All.
This new multiplayer experience throws team tactics out the window as each player battles for survival and kills versus all other players. A first for the Gears of War series, the Free-For-All mode pits COG soldier on COG soldier in a test of wits and will.
To debut the new mode with a bang, Epic Games and Microsoft have announced two new maps – Gondola and Library – featuring the Free-For-All Mode:
GONDOLA – The Coastal Villa Apartments are part of the exclusive Halvo community located in the prestigious Agora foothills. Residents enjoy a host of interior upgrades, and each unit features an ocean view from a private patio or balcony. This quiet, gated community is located only a short gondola ride from the renowned shops and businesses of our active and thriving coastal community.
LIBRARY – The Alexiy Desipich Memorial Library is not a library in the traditional sense, but rather an archive of important documents surrounding his life, career, and personal interests. An avid historian, politician, and philosopher, Desipich is most remembered as the father and creator of the Austere Canon, the basis for the Coalition of Ordered Governments, which was shaped around eight guiding principles: Order, Diligence, Purity, Labor, Honour, Loyalty, Faith, and Humility.
Free-For-All is the second new multiplayer experience introduced for "Gears of War: Judgment." It joins OverRun, the thrilling class-based competitive mode that pits Locust and COG soldiers in a head-to-head battle, to give “Gears” fans an addictive gameplay experience.
Developed exclusively for Xbox 360 by Epic Games and People Can Fly, "Gears of War: Judgment" delivers a riveting campaign featuring new characters, weapons and enemies, and new multiplayer experiences.
“Gears of War: Judgment” will launch worldwide on 19 March, 2013. Subscribe to all of the latest Xbox 360 news as it happens via Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and YouTube.
