Campaign DLC coming December 13th

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/n...-December.html

Quote:
That Gears of War 3 Season Pass should look all the more enticing today, as Epic Games and Microsoft have announced the first chunk of proper campaign DLC, which will be launching after the Horde Command pack that's due to land on the Xbox Live Marketplace on November 1st.

Entitled, 'RAAM's Shadow' the campaign add-on will offer more than three hours of additional new gameplay for the Gears 3 campaign, with a prequel storyline set before the events of the first Gears of War that will star a cast of new and familiar faces. Furthermore, the pack will also be packing in another six multiplayer characters, a 'Chocolate Weapon Set' and 250 Gamerscore's worth of new achievements.

“When we announced the ‘Gears 3’ Season Pass, we immediately started getting hundreds of questions from fans about what the game add-ons would be,” said Epic Games Design Director, Cliff Bleszinski. “We’re really excited to be lifting the curtain on the first two releases, first with the ‘Horde Command Pack’ and now with ‘RAAM’s Shadow,’ which gives fans a new perspective on the ‘Gears’ universe and is also the biggest DLC release we’ve ever made.”

You'll be able to reunite with Lt. Minh Young Kim from Gears 1 and Tai Kaliso from Gears 2 in RAAM's Shadow, as well as meeting comic book Gears hero Michael Barrick and new female comrade, Alicia Valera. And as if that wasn't enough, you'll even get to step into the big scary boots of Gears 1 boss General RAAM himself, storming the human stronghold from his perspective.

“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.”

You'll be able to get your hands on Gears of War 3's RAAM's Shadow DLC on December 13th for 1200 Microsoft Points, or get it as part of the Season Pass, which is still available to download for 2400 Microsoft Points.

"RAAM's Shadow" sees Zeta Squad attempting to evacuate Illima City in the wake of Emergence Day.
New info from GameInformer:
Quote:
•Begin as Player 1 assuming control of Michael Barrick, the rest of the squad is Lt. Kim leader of Zeta Squad, Tai and Valera.

•Emergence holes are back, so stock up on grenades.

•Hammer of dawn is now a "top-down view" instead of traditional controls.

•After a minor SPOILER that the magazine didn't mind telling (assholes. Moving on.) the perspective switches to Player 1 controlling RAAM.

•"When he's not targeting anyone, a swarm of Kryll surround RAAM and deflect incoming bullets. He's not invincible, however, as fire and explosions still damage him. These Kryll are also his ammunition, as he can target COG soldiers and direct the storm around them... Players never run out of Kryll, but the swarm ability operates on a cooldown timer."

•Close quarters for RAAM, he uses his "gigantic sword" for melee or can charge similar to a retro run.

•Players 2-4 will control 2 Elite Maulers and an Elite Theron. The Elite Theron has a Retro Sawed-Off that comes with two blades.

•During the DLC campaign players will switch back and forth between the locusts and Zeta Squad.

So I'm assuming this was the Michael Barrick campaign that was alluded to earlier?!? Nonetheless, more DLC + cheevos = me

EDIT: Thanks for the the full quote to answer my question! Added to Complete Thread.

Nice. thanks for posting this. I'm not sure about the Chocolate weapon set though. A brown Gnasher? It might look like you're trying to kill someone with a giant turd!

Well that's what the Gnasher was for me anyway, a giant shitstick.
Nonetheless.

Ok, so this wasn't here when I posted my thread which has been deleted.
Anyways.




Do we know if this is part of the Season Pass?

Reading the description could mean 4 DLC per quarter or 4 DLC total w/ 1 per quarter being covered by the SP.

You get to play as RAAM?! With the kryll shield!? This game just keeps getting better and better.

Edit Well then I guess Kim's death scene in Gears 1 wasn't the first time he encountered RAAM. Maybe that was some kind of vengeance for whatever happens in this dlc.

They said that it comes with 6 mp characters and I'm sure the first five are RAAM, Kim, Tai, Barrick and the new female gear but who is the last one?

This thread was up before yours in the main forum. I made the sub-forum real quick, edited this thread with better info, deleted yours and moved this over. Nothing personal, just had a better title.

Anyway, the rule for achievements is per quarter "from the game's release" so the HCP is the first quarter content and this might be early by a week, but this will be Q2's content. So I'd expect the last two in late Feb/early March and then late May/early June. Since the HCP and this both have been confirmed at 250G, I'd guess each of the last to be 125G each since they'll likely just be map packs.

Damn now I'm seriously thinking to get that season pass...

... but I still didn't understand if it gives you 4 DLCs for free (including this one) or just a 33% discount on every DLC.
I thought it was already said elsewhere but reading this thread I see it's not clear yet

So what's the answer?
It's a pre-order on the first 4 pieces of DLC at a 33% discount so if you bought the same separately it would cost over 3000 ms points instead of the 2400 you pay for the pass.

This right here proves that spending the cash on the Season pass was worth it. Although this also means that a total of 2000 MS points has been used out of the what...3000 or so that the Season pass equates to. So, I hope the remaining two dlcs to come out will also be just as awesome.

It's not like they decided to make this dlc because ticker Tuesday didn't go over so well. This has been in the works for awhile now.

We get to play as RAAM? Nice! That should be sweet! Kryll shield and that big old turret he carries around should be fun. (Hope we get to use that kickass sword that he kills Lt. Kim with in Gears 1)

I'm stoked for this new DLC. The HCP is not doubt going to be great and I'm glad this DLC comes out four days before my birthday! The only thing is there is no Versus Maps added to this? I thought they would add a few versus maps with each DLC since there was that leaked list of future maps that may or may not come out, and there was at least 20 maps on that list. Oh well, still excited to finally be able to play as RAAM! Return of of the Kryll anyone??

RAAM would be so much better since I'd take a kryll shield and portable troika over that chainsaw staff thing any time.
