Gears of War 3 ‘Forces of Nature’ Map Pack Now Available
If you’re not content with Gears of War 3‘s current roster of maps, you may be interested to know that the final Gears of War 3 map pack, titled ‘Forces of Nature‘, is now available on Xbox Live.
The latest map pack adds in three all-new maps to Gear’s of War 3‘s extensive lineup of maps, including Cove, Aftermath, and Artillery, all three of which have new weather mechanics to mix things up a bit. If that’s not enough for you, two classic maps from Gears of War 2 will also be included: Jacinto and Raven Down.
Gear’s of War 3′s ‘Forces of Nature‘ DLC is billed as a map pack, but it has more to offer than just a few maps; the DLC also adds back in the ‘Guardian’ gametype. In this mode, one player from each team is assigned as the “Guardian”–the team’s goal is to keep the Guardian alive, because once that player goes down, the entire team loses the ability to respawn.
The DLC also adds in a few new unlockables, such as four new characters, a couple of new weapons, and an additional 250 Gamerscore for all of you achievement hunters to pad your overall Gamerscore with.
If you picked up a Gears of War 3 season pass, the Forces of Nature DLC will be made available to you at no charge. For the rest of us, the final map pack will set you back an agreeable 800 Microsoft Points.
