Gears of War 3 Pre-order Day to start on Sep 10 in UAE
Early buyers could win goodies, entry to UAE launch.
As the release of Gears of War 3 gets nigh-er, Microsoft are slowly putting its hype gear into place. According to the freshly sent press release, pre-orders for Epic’s shooter will begin on September 10 for fans in the UAE.
And if you are wondering why one should pre-order games in this part of the world where games rarely fly of the shelves, well there are few incentives. Pre-orderers stand a chance to win exclusive Gears of War 3 merchandise “not available elsewhere else in the region”, as well as an entry ticket to the UAE launch next week.
Pre-orders can be made via Carrefour Online, Sharaf DG, Plug-ins and Geekay Games, and upon doing so, buyers will receive a unique code which can be registered at the official Xbox 360 Gulf Facebook page to find out the merchandise they won.
“With fans around the globe strapping on their boots, loading up their Lancers, and gearing up for the worldwide launch of Gears of War 3 on September 20th, we couldn’t be more excited about announcing the Gears of War 3 pre-order campaign available for UAE gaming fans,” said Aman Sangar, business head at Microsoft Gulf.
“To secure a copy, all fans have to do is visit Xbox 360’s official Facebook page to enter their unique code and secure their free gift, as well as be entered into this exciting draw. Also, those looking to get their hands on one of the Limited Editions of the game, pre-ordering is highly recommended as stocks are limited.”
Gears of War 3 will be available in two editions: Standard Edition (AED 249) and Limited Edition (AED 299), the latter of which is available only through pre-order.
The Limited Edition includes:
- An Octus Award Box and Octus Service Medal – replicas of the honors bestowed on Adam Fenix, Marcus’s father, for his work on the Hammer of Dawn.
- A fabric COG Flag – proud colors that once flew above the House of Sovereigns.
- The personal effects of Adam Fenix, including his “Last Will and Testament,” the initial Hammer of Dawn schematic, and other Fenix family mementos.
