Gears of War 2 had this pretty cool pre-order and midnight launch bonus for its fans. Do you remember it? I do, it was the Golden Lancer and the Golden Hammerburst! The only way to obtain these items were to attend the midnight launch for Gears Of War 2 for the Golden Hammerburst and if you pre-ordered the limited edition game, you got the Golden Lancer. Well, if you are one of the many people who have Gears of War 3 pre-ordered and will be on the multiplayer the first week. You will be amongst those who will have the ability to unlock the gold skins for your Hammerburst and Lancer. If you don’t believe us, believe this quote from the official press release.
“Play any match on Xbox LIVE from Sept. 20-26 to unlock the Golden Lancer and Golden Hammerburst multiplayer weapon skins.”
Gears of War 3 chainsaw its way into stores, September 20th, exclusively for Xbox 360.
