In celebration of the midnight launch promotions for the highly anticipated shooter, Gears of War 2, developer Epic Games is giving away free voucher codes to unlock a special weapon and five multiplayer maps in the game for players who purchase the title during the events.
The gold-plated Hammerburst rifle (pictured above) and classic Gears of War maps--Canals, Gridlock, Mansion, Subway, and Tyro Station--will be handed out on November 6th, midnight. A gold-plated Lancer rifle is also available via the title's Limited Edition package. Both special-plated weapons do not possess any enhanced functions, other than their shiny facade.
Epic Games will also be offering the Gears of War maps as a promotion for new game purchases for "loyal fans". Gears of War 2, published by Microsoft, will be available this November 7 exclusively for the Xbox 360. (Thanks for the tip)
