Gears of War 3 ‘Forces of Nature’ DLC Now Available

Posted on March 27, 2012 AT 07:27am

THE BUZZ: The Forces of Nature DLC pack for “Gears of War 3″ is now available to download from the Xbox Live Marketplace.

The DLC adds five new multiplayer maps, each with a unique weather condition: Aftermath (Flooding City), Artillery (Tornado), Cover (Fog), Jacinto (Rainstorm and Imulsion), and Raven Down (Snowstorm).

Also included are an additional 250 Achievement Points and four new multiplayer characters, the Savage Hunter, and new variants of Commando Dom, Mechanic Baird, and the Savage Grenadier Elite.

You can download the DLC here for 800 Microsoft Points. Gears of War 3 Season Pass holders get it for no additional cost.

EGM’s TAKE: We like the look of the new weather conditions, they should really add an extra dimension to multiplayer. Not only have you got to watch out for the enemy, but you also can’t afford to get caught short when the weather roles in. The new achievements will please hunters and give them a reason to get back into the game for a while. However, the four new characters aren’t really that amazing as they are just variations on ones currently available. For 800 Microsoft Points it is certainly worth the money.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
