Free Gears of War 3 DLC Announced

Shooter Xbox 360 News Microsoft Epic Action

With the delay of Gears of War 3’s first major downloadable content earlier today, Epic Games and Microsoft have seem to make it up to us by announcing free some DLC inbound for November 24. The “Versus Booster Map Pack” will feature five maps, three brand new ones Azura, Rustlung and Blood Drive from the “Horde Command Pack” and two fan favourites from Gears of War 1 Swamp and Clocktower.

The free Versus Booster Map Pack allows all Gears 3 players to unlock and play through the new multiplayer maps. But for players who have purchased the ‘Horde Command Pack‘ or the ‘Gears of War 3 Season Pass‘, you’ll get exclusive access to the pack’s Horde fortification upgrades and new playable characters – Bernie Mataki, Big Rig Dizzy and the Onyx Guard, as well as a few weapon skins such as Team Plasma and Jungle Camo.

The delay issue of the Horde Command Pack have been resolved and is available to download today for 800 Microsoft Points and the free Versus Booster Map Pack will go live in a few weeks time on November 24.

      LOL. Are you yawning because you already knew this minutes after it was announced?

      Because if you are, you’re being a Gear-Hipster. 😛

    All my Gear-head friends were pissed about this at first. Since they bought the season pass. At first when they announced it they didn’t say the free maps would only work in multiplayer, so they felt they got ripped off.
    Thankfully the situation was cleared up quickly.

    I think it’s cool to make free multiplayer-only maps. That way there is no reason for people not to have them, and it dosen’t limit online multiplayer as much.
