A new Gears of War 3 DLC has been announced. “RAAM’s Shadow” gives players over three hours of new gameplay, six new multiplayer characters, the Chocolate Weapon Skin Set and an additional 250 achievement points.
“RAAM’s Shadow” is set in a storyline that precedes the events of the first Gears of War game. Players will find themselves in a post-Emergence Day Sera, as Zeta Squad is enlisted to evacuate Ilima City and protect the citizens against a Locust Kryll storm. Taking on the infamous Locust leader from “Gears 1,” General RAAM, Zeta is led by Michael Barrick and comprised of familiar faces such as Lt. Minh Young Kim (“Gears 1”) and Tai Kaliso (“Gears 2”), and also includes a new female comrade, Alicia Valera.
In addition to fighting as this new squad, players will get to take on the role of RAAM to storm the human stronghold.
“RAAM’s imposing size and strength, along with his Kryll shield, make him one of the most powerful and daunting foes in the ‘Gears’ universe,” said Cliff Bleszinski. “We think fans are going to have a blast unleashing hell upon the poor humans for the first time in a campaign setting.”
“RAAM’s Shadow” will be available December 1st for 1,200 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
It has also been announced that the Liquid Green skin set will be available January 3, 2012 for purchase for 320MS, $4.00. Now you can be cool like the EPIC employees. With the announcement of “RAAM’s Shadow” and the “Horde Command Pack” coming Nov. 1, the Season Pass is definitely paying for itself.
