Gears of War 3: Free Weapon Skins DLC by completing Horde on insane

By Updated on

We recently informed you about a great movie-game DLC promotion related to Battlefield 3, but now we have to say that Microsoft and Paramount Pictures have just taken things to a whole new level. If you’re a Gears of War 3 player, listen up as there’s free DLC up for grabs.

That Battlefield 3 promotion we spoke about offered players some free dog tags simply by watching the Act of Valor movie trailer, but now Gears of Wars 3 players can participate in a similar promotion. The movie associated with this giveaway though is Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol and as you may have guessed, you’re going to have to take part in a mission impossible of your own if you want to win the swag.

The swag on offer is the Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol Weapon Skin Pack for Gears of War 3 and it consists of five weapon skins for the Lancer, Hammerburst, Retro Lancer, Gnasher Shotgun, and Sawed-off Shotgun. To win, you have to watch the Mission Impossible: Ghost Procotol movie trailer on Xbox Live and then complete Horde mode or the Gears of War 3 campaign on ‘insane’ difficulty. Those of you that have the game will agree that this is no easy task, but you will have until December 25th to complete your mission.

If you try and fail to complete Horde mode, you’ll still be put into a prize draw to win some pretty tasty goodies, including a 50-inch TV, Xbox 360 console with Kinect and much more. If you’re simply a beast and have already completed the game or Horde mode on Insane, you’ll receive this pack for free on December 31st, as reported from GameRant.

As for the movie itself, Tom Cruise will be donning his M.I attire again on December 21st. If you’re interested, look out for the trailer on Xbox Live soon to begin your mission. If you do own Gears 3 and haven’t beat the game on Insane yet, this is well worth a shot as there’s some great prizes up for grabs. On a side note, we’re loving the creativity of this movie-game DLC offer – we hope there are much more promotions like this in 2012 – an Avengers one for example would be fantastic.

Have you beat the game on Insane yet? If so, what tips would you give players who are going to attempt this mission?
