Epic Games has announced that the first DLC for Gears of War 3 will be out on November 1st. This one will contain additional achievements worth 250 Gamerscore, 3 new maps (Azura, Rustlung and Bloodrive), new fortification upgrades, two weapon skins and three new characters (Onyx Guard, Big Rig Dizzy and Bernie Mataki). It will cost you 800 MSP if you don't have the Season Pass.
Horde Command Pack
• Three spectacular new maps:
— Blood Drive – The Jacinto Medical Plaza was overwhelmed by evacuated citizens after the government-sanctioned Hammer Strikes, and the ensuing riots quickly turned this safe haven into a dangerous inferno. An abundance of high ground and funneled choke points make this map a returning favorite to Horde.
— Rustlung – Once the pride of the Royal Tyran Navy, the foredecks of this decommissioned battleship are now riddled with bullet holes. Any team with the fortitude to hold the exposed central torpedo bay will find that the ship’s Loader has been replaced with a battle-ready Silverback mech suit.
— Azura – This island resort was once the exclusive domain of Sera’s educated elite, but the tranquil water gardens and lush foliage have become a hotly contested combat zone. Dual snipers overlook a powerful explosive weapon, while the defensive central platform may be your last resort of retreat.
• New fortification upgrades:
— Command Center – A brand new type of fortification that allows you to call in fire support from sniper teams, mortar strikes and even multiple Hammers of Dawn.
— Decoy Upgrade – A new fortification level that turns your decoy into an Onyx Guard bot that will fight in your defense.
— Sentry Upgrade – This upgrade adds a fire bolt sentry that deals much more damage and is very effective against Berserkers.
— Silverback Upgrade – This advancement allows you to upgrade your Silverback exo-suit with devastating rockets and extra levels of repair cost reduction.
• New characters:
Big Rig Dizzy
I blame imperialism, conformity, and capricious little boys with money that titleholder's cannot resist; also television. (0 minute ago)
Remember when BF3 was anounced? That was really thrilling. But nowadays they shit 1 out every year. It's the model Activision introduced with CoD. (5 minutes ago)
I don't blame the studios, I blame the publishers. Although Dice messed up big time... (8 minutes ago)
When I read Straley's reasons to leave Naughty Dog, one of the best devs, it only confirms what people like Jim Sterling are saying. (10 minutes ago)
I just don't understand that some of us see that AAA gaming is going downhill because of the business models and the lack of taking risks. Some of us will defend publishers till the end (13 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: Dear me, you just can't let it go. I bought the X1X to be my main platform. So, no, I'm not stopping with gaming. (15 minutes ago)
for me the more important games in VR are the ones from indie studio's who are conceptually not playing it safe, they're experimental and unique and are offering experiences we wouldn't get otherwise (1 Hour ago)
