It's official – we're about to get our Gears of War multiplayer groove on all over again.

Epic Games has posted an announcement on the official Gears of War Facebook page indicating that People Can Fly's Gears of War: Judgment, the prequel that follows the misadventures of Baird and "Cole Train" in an all new story, has gone gold.  Above is a picture of the staff in celebration over the pending game, ready to get online and frag a few hundred people.

This means that the game will meet its March 19th release date without any delays, and that all the multiplayer modes – including the new Overrun – will be ready for players to challenge.  You can read more about multiplayer through our impressions here.

A demo will be released the day the game comes out on Xbox Live Marketplace, giving you a taste of the kind of action that awaits you.  If you pre-order the game, you'll gain access to it four days early.  Who wouldn't want that?!

Gears of War: Judgment will be released exclusively for Xbox 360.
