Gears Of War 3 RAAM’s Shadow DLC Announced

Posted on October 20, 2011 AT 07:22am

THE BUZZ: Microsoft and Epic Games have announced the second piece of Gears of War 3 DLC which will be a campaign add-on called RAMM’s Shadow.

Starring a cast of characters both new and eerily familiar to the series, “RAAM’s Shadow” will deliver more than three hours of gameplay set in a storyline that precedes the events of the first “Gears of War,”

RAAM’s Shadow drops players into the events of Sera post-Emergence Day, as Zeta Squad is enlisted to evacuate Ilima City and protect the citizens against a Locust Kryll storm. Taking on the infamous Locust leader from Gears 1, General RAAM, Zeta is led by Michael Barrick (from “Gears of War” comics fame) and comprised of familiar faces such as Lt. Minh Young Kim (“Gears 1″) and Tai Kaliso (“Gears 2″), and also includes a new female comrade, Alicia Valera.

In addition to fighting as a new squad of Gears, players will step into the boots of RAAM himself, and for the first time storm the human stronghold from the perspective of one of the series’ most legendary bosses.

The DLC will feature:

  • Six new multiplayer characters
  • The Chocolate Weapon Set
  • An additional 250 Gamerscore

It will launch December 13th and cost 1200 Microsoft Points, or as part of the Season Pass.

EGM’s TAKE: The first piece of campaign DLC will make fans very happy, and the fact that an old enemy will return is a nice little bonus.
