Gears of War 3 DLC Announced for December 13th

by | @AttackFanboy | on October 20, 2011

Microsoft and Epic have announced new DLC for Gears of War 3.  Titled “RAAM’s Shadow”, this DLC is said to be the largest single peice of downloadable content that Epic has ever put out for the franchise.  “RAAM’s Shadow will offer up more than three hours of gameplay in the single player campaign, as well as offer six new multiplayer characters and a brand new weapon skin set.

“RAAM’s Shadow” drops players into the events of Sera post-Emergence Day, 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 (from “Gears of War” comics fame) 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 a new squad of Gears, players will step into the boots of RAAM himself, and for the first time storm the human stronghold from the perspective of one of the series’ most legendary bosses.

“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 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 won’t be the first content for the game.  The already announced “Horde Command Pack” is due out on November 1st and will feature new multiplayer maps, characters, weapon skins, horde upgrades, and achievements.
