Gears of War Available on Xbox Live Marketplace

Classic Xbox 360 Shooter Now Downloadable

January 3, 2010 – Gears of War, one of the Xbox 360s most defining titles, is now available to download from the Xbox Live Marketplace for $19.99. The downloadable version of the full game does not include bonus content that came with the “Platinum Edition” of the game, but it does contain the epic first chapter in the Gears saga as well as the original multiplayer levels that shipped with Gears of War.

Gears of War tells the story of Marcus Fenix, a soldier in the Coalition of Governments (COG) as they fight against a benevolent force that has risen from the ground beneath their feet. This enemy, this Locust, is vicious, powerful, and has the ability to swallow cities whole. Gears of War takes place in a world that is nearly finished, where humans have been decimated and where the best option remaining is to take the fight to the Locust by going underground to detonate a massive bomb.

Featuring graphics that defined the “next-gen” console when it arrived on store shelves, tactical cover, blistering firefights and intriguing, entertaining characters, Gears of War is a classic on the Xbox 360 and now can be downloaded directly onto your Xbox 360.
