Free DLC Pack Incoming
After a "backend issue" prevented Gears Of War 3's Horde Command DLC pack from releasing on time, Epic Games VP Mark Rein has confirmed that it's now available on Xbox Live. It will set you back 800 Microsoft Points if you haven't bought the Season Pass - and adds three new horde maps, several new fortification upgrades and some extra characters. Details here.
In other Gears 3 news, Epic has announced that a free content pack will be heading to Xbox Live later this month. The Versus Booster Pack will be free to download from November 24th (barring more technical issues), containing five new versus maps including revamped versions of classic Gears 1 levels (Clocktower and Swamp) as well as tweaked Horde Command DLC arenas tuned for competitive play.
