Why not double down on the next few months of your gaming free time with Gears of War: Judgment and its newly announced VIP Season Pass? If you're planning on investing some time into the game's multiplayer, there's really no excuse not to. For $20 or 1600 MSP, the VIP pass not only provides you with early access to all 6 maps, 2 modes and plenty of other content, but also gives you a permanent double XP boost. Simply put, if you don't pick it up you'll be left behind.
Here's all of the content that will be included in Gears of War: Judgment's VIP Season Pass:
- Two upcoming Game Add-on Packs that include six multiplayer maps, two new modes, and new weapon and armor skins.
- Early access to Game Add-on multiplayer maps so you can be the first to play.
- A permanent double XP boost to accelerate your ascent through the ranks.
- Five exclusive weapon skins and four exclusive armor skins.
While Gears has never employed an experience system with the type of unlocks that Call of Duty does, a permanent XP boost does seem a little excessive. Still, it's likely that the only people who would be bothered that others are gaining more experience than them are the type of folk would certainly want to purchase this VIP Season Pass. I suppose that in the end that works out alright.
Gears of War: Judgment will be released on March 19 exclusively for the Xbox 360. The VIP Season pass, which will cost 1600 MSP or $20 on its own, will come at a 20% compared to what each piece of content would cost individually. Though I suppose the content's value is really inherent to what the player makes of it. Of course, if you preorder early, you can get early access starting March 15.
