Gears of War 3 Fenix Rising DLC recap before launch date

In four days time gamers who are still playing Gears of War 3 will be able to get hold of the Fenix Rising downloadable-content on Xbox Live, today we thought we would remind you of just what this DLC will bring your way.

The Fenix Rising DLC will hit Xbox Live on January 17 for 800 Microsoft Points, however it also comes as part of the Gears of War 3 Season Pass, this is still available now for 2400 Microsoft Points and will allow you to download the game’s first four add-ons, which means that you’ll save yourself 33% overall – you can find out more about the season pass and perhaps add it to your 360’s download queue here.

Once you’ve got the content you will be able to play Versus Multiplayer, Horde and Beast Mode on five new maps, these are Academy, Anvil, Depths, Escalation and The Slab, you can see a full overview of these maps over at, also if you head over to GameRevolution you can see a screenshot from each map, we have embedded one of them below. Also if your scroll down to the bottom of this page you can see a flythrough of ‘The Slab’ map.

It’s not just new maps which you will get, dedicated players can also choose whether to “Re-Up” so they can rank up through level 100 multiple times, this allows players to reset experience and rank but keep other progression such as their TrueSkill rating. You will be able to “Re-Up” three times and each time you’ll earn a new rank color each time. Re-upping will also allow gamers to unlock exclusive emblems and weapon skins, these weapon skins are said to be Re-Up Plasma, Re-Up Omen and Re-Up Electric – there’s no other way to get these skins!

Will you buy this DLC when it hits Xbox Live?
