Microsoft and Epic have announced the third major add-on pack for Gears of War 3, the very brutal and manly shooter of last year, is now available on Xbox 360. Featuring five new multiplayer maps, four new character skins and a new experience system, this map pack is looking to be full of some serious fun.
With the purchase of the add-on, players who attain level 100 will have a choice to “Re-up” for another tour of duty to showcase their valour and dedication as elite “Gears of War” fans. Their experience and rank will be reset, but all other progression (including TrueSkill rating) will remain intact. Players can “Re-up” up to three times, earning new wings colours each time: Red, Green, and Gold. The rank number will also be coloured Red, Green, or Blue. Each “Re-up” level also awards the player an exclusive, custom weapon skin that cannot be obtained by any other means.
The five stunning new maps – Academy, Anvil, Depths, Escalation, and the Slab – will be delivering endless hours of frantic online action across Versus Multiplayer, Horde and Beast Mode. Additionally, players who purchase “Fenix Rising” will gain access to four new character skins (Recruit Clayton, Thrashball Cole - Limited Edition, Savage Marauder and Savage Kantus - Limited Edition) for use in Versus Multiplayer and Horde Mode.
Fenix Rising is now available for 800 Microsoft Points or included as part of the "Gears of War 3" Season Pass. Look out for the last map pack which will most likely be sometime later this year. Check out the screenshots below of the new maps, and also gun chainsaw your way through to our game page
