Gears Of War Expansion Adds 3 Hours To Campaign

For $US15 on December 13, you'll be able to add three hours to Gears of War 3's storyline campaign by downloading a new expansion to the game called RAAM's Shadow. You'll also be able to play as a bad guy in it.

The creators of Gears of War 3 spilled details on the second big downloadable content release for September's Xbox 360 exclusive today, promising that RAAM's Shadow will add more than three hours of gameplay through a mini-campaign set after Emergence Day, the event that triggered the war that has been raging through the three Gears games. Emergence Day preceded the events of the original Gears of War by 14 years.

In RAAM's Shadow, you'll be playing as members of Zeta squad, including Michael Barrick from the Gears comics, Lt Minh Young Kim from the first game, Tai Kaliso from the second and a new character named Alicia Valera. Players will also play as RAAM, essentially taking on the role of one of the end boss of the first Gears of War as he storms a human stronghold.

The $US15 expansion will also add six characters to multiplayer, an opportunity for 250 Achievement points and the Chocolate Weapons Set, which is presumably a silly, alternate array of guns for multiplayer. Yummy!

Those who bought the Gears of War 3 season pass will get RAAM's Shadow as part of their pass.


    i second that

    Umm u know this crap was already made before release but not included so that they can suck more money out of you? This shit shouldnt be happening and people shouldnt take it or soon we will be paying for a box with the first level and you have to pay for the rest. Dlc the game

      Indeed. You can't create 3 hours of campaign content in four months. Not if you want to hit the same quality bar as the retail release. Can't wait to pay to access the rest of the content on my game disc in the form of weapon skins and "extra" multiplayer characters!

      I'll wait till the inevutable DLC sale before picking it up.

        Consider the following.

        Once the game reached gold and was essentially ready to be sold, before all the last bug checks and the finalising and the disc printing and the boxing and the shipping and the waiting until release dates, they would have said "well! Let's get started." And they start on the DLC straight away.

        It's not that hard to believe.

      I've been playing it pretty much straight for several weeks now. Between Story, Co-Op and online Multiplayer it's more than justified its sticker price several times over.

      I have no issues whatsoever forking out another $15 for 3 hours of story and more content for online.

    Gotta start thinking about buying that Season Pass pretty soon now :S

    yeah i already got it :P lol im so ready :) hope u will be too
