The Season pass for Gears of War 3 is official, and if you’re planning on making Gears of War 3 your new obsession it might just be worth the dough. The pass will set you back 2400 Microsoft Points, giving you access to all future DLC for the game. With four planned DLC packs it sounds like a pretty good deal, with Epic throwing in a downloadable weapon skin to sweeten the pot. After Gears 3 releases in September, there are four planned expansions for the game. They haven’t announced the details of these expansions, but at this time they are expected to offer an extension to the campaign, horde 2.0, and multiplayer components of the game.
The Gears of War 3 Season Pass will be available whenever you decide to take the plunge, so as it stands, it doesn’t sound like a limited time offer.
