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
The world isn't interactive enough. It's easy to compare it to Far Cry... and it's probably not as good as Far Cry. (3 Hours ago)
I only played for about an hour so far but my initial impressions are that the squad and stealth stuff is okay but the vehicle handling is indeed super bad. (3 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: that is pretty crazy considering WD2 pretty much ruined the shooting mechanics from WD1 (probably the only good thing about that game) (3 Hours ago)
I won't call you crazy.. I haven't played either. (6 Hours ago)
People are gonna call me crazy, but I got far more enjoyment out of Watch Dogs 2's shooting mechanics than Ghost Recon: Wildlands'. Need to test other weapons, but only unlocked 2 of them. (8 Hours ago)
I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (9 Hours ago)
That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (9 Hours ago)
