Gears of War 3 “Season Pass” Detailed

August 29, 2011


Microsoft and Epic Games just announced earlier today that they will be offering a “Season Pass” for downloadable content, very much in the vein of L.A. Noire.  The Season Pass will give gamers the first four DLC packs that will release “over the course of next year.”  The first DLC is already planned for release this November.  On the launch day of Gears of War 3 (September 20th), you can access the Xbox Live Marketplace and get the Season Pass for 2400 Microsoft Points (which is $30).  Microsoft stated that the DLC will cost a total of 3600 Microsoft Points ($45) if you don’t buy the Season Pass and choose to purchase the DLC at your own pace.

The downloadable content will not only be entailed toward multiplayer however.  There will certainly be some single-player content as well, which is always great news.  There’s another advantage to purchasing the Season Pass that should be noted.  You see that T-1000 style Lancer below?  You get that. The “exclusive Liquid Metal Weapon Set” will only be available to adopters of the Season Pass so if you want this sleek looking Lancer, you better be ready to pick up your Pass.

T-1000 would approve...

Will you be getting the Season Pass to chainsaw down your enemies with liquid metal?  Sound off your thoughts in the comments below!

    The season Pass definatley seems worth it saving $15 and knowing Epic their DLC will be Epic lol or at least well worth the price

    Hefty price for a season pass. But damn it, I’ll take it. If only because the practice has worked well for me before with L.A. Noire and Mortal Kombat.
