According to Microsoft, early access to the Gears of War: Judgement demo will be available on March 15th to only US customers who pre-ordered the game.

The demo will eventually be released worldwide from March 19th 2013, if you have an Xbox Live Gold account.

If essentially paying for a demo doesn’t make you too happy, especially when there isn’t much time between the demo and full game release, the good news is that the full game will come with a code to download a free digital copy of the very first original Gears of War.
