The lights are on
Gears of War 3 has been a big hit since its Sept. 20 release, selling more than 3 million copies in its first week alone. Those legions of players will have some more content to play with starting November 1, when the game's first DLC pack is released on Xbox Live.
The Horde Command Pack adds a host of additions to the game's Horde mode (surprise!), including three new maps and playable characters, two new weapon skins, new fortification upgrades, and new achievements worth 250 gamerscore.The pack will set you back 800 Microsoft Points, though you can save a few points in the long run by picking up a season pass for the game's DLC.
Here are the details, straight from Microsoft:
New weapon skins
You can see screens of the characters and maps in the gallery below. Is this what you were hoping to see from the game's first DLC?

I just started playing Gears 3 today and I'm already loving it. The new Onyx Guard character looks pretty cool and new upgrades and achievements are always good.
I could have sworn they said the first DLC was for single player, this is awesome way to go Epic
I really need to get this, hopefully for my bday
ONYX GUARD!!!!! =^D
So it's really just ULC (unlockable content)...
I want Alex Brand, but yes, this is a great package. Season passing now.
Onyx guard looks cool.
Big Rig Dizzy looks so dumb. The more Horde the better though!
Grrrr somehow I'll find money to get the season pass....somehow
well i like the variety
Thinking about getting it.
I want the flashback map pack!
My girlfriend will want to play as Bernie (because of the hair) and everything looks great, I just wish I didn't have to fork over $10 to get it. I mean I just bought the game. Stupid DLC...
I was really thinking about buying the Season Pass today and if this is any indication of what the DLC will be like, then I can already say it'll be money well spent. Blood Drive looks great too.
I love it when you not only get new skins and maps, but new playable objects that help you too.
I guess it is. I got the Season Pass after about a week of playing the game once I beat it and started running about online in Horde and multiplayer. We will see. I definitely like the Onyx Guard skin =)back in Black baby!
