Gears of War 3 Season Pass Wraps Up with 'Forces of Nature' DLC, Now AvailablePaul Acevedo

Everyone expects shooters these days to receive downloadable content down the line; it helps keep the multiplayer community going while bringing in the bucks. Gears of War 3 even went so far as to allow players to prepurchase its first four DLC packages at a discount as part of a Season Pass. The fourth and final Season Pass component, 'Forces of Nature' just launched this week. It packs five maps, four character skins, numerous weapon skins, the classic Guardian multiplayer mode, and of course, 250 GamerScore of Achievements. For players without a season pass, 'Forces of Nature' costs 800 Microsoft Points ($10).

In fact, the fourth and latest title update has just appeared, a week ahead of the 'Forces of Nature' DLC (pictured). It contains a number of minor tweaks and bug fixes, all of which should make the multiplayer experience more enjoyable.

Gears of War 3 has received two, count'em, two new DLC's in past few (okay, six) weeks.  The first was the Horde Command Pack, which features new multiplayer characters, weapon skins, Horde mode upgrades, and a few new maps.  That's all well and good, but the meatier of the two DLC's came out yesterday.  RAAM's Shadow offers a whole new co-operative campaign which takes place before the events of the first Gears of War.

Didn't some pessimistic jerk just claim that there's nothing coming out this week?  Man, I'll have to talk to the boss about him.  Anyway - Gear of War 3 DLC is coming out tomorrow, December 13th.  It's titled "RAAM's Shadow" and it's a prequel to the trilogy we all know and love.  You'll experience a new take on the Gears universe as you step into the heavy boots of the Locust General and unleash hell on the COG forces.  That's right, this additional storyline will include a campaign from the Locust perspective.  Not only that, the whole thing will support two player local co-op and four player online co-op.

By now many of you would have completed the Gears of War 3 campaign and it was pretty awesome. Perhaps some of you joined the Co-Optimus team on their recent 4 player jaunt through the game on Insane Arcade mode (this mode is also excellent and feels like a different gaming experience.) However, if you still crave more, some co-op campaign DLC is on the way in the form of RAAM's Shadow. Check out the first gameplay trailer courtesy of G4TV.

While Gears of War 3 wrapped up the story of Marcus, Dom and crew quite nicely - rumors are already circulating about more games in the series.  The Official Xbox Magazine has the pulse on what seems to be a likely scenario - a new trilogy of Gears of War games set before the current in true Star Wars fashion.

Gears of War 3 is a fantastic co-op title, overflowing with modes and content. Games with major online components like that usually require some tweaks after the fact in order to keep things fair, balanced, and fun. Thankfully Epic is on top of things, recently releasing a title update with some fixes. The many changes include: a new spectator mode, the removal of several exploits, better host migration in Horde mode, and lots more.
