Free Gears Of War 3 DLC Coming Thanksgiving Day

Epic announced today that it will be giving away the Versus Booster Map Pack for free on November 24. These five maps should pump up your competitive Gears 3 time with more juice than a trainer in the Oakland Athletics clubhouse circa 1995.

Three of the five maps – Azura, Blood Drive, and Rustlung – are included in the Horde Command Pack, which launched today. Two more, Bullet Marsh and Clocktower, round out the free Versus Booster Map Pack.

It's nice to see Epic giving away new stuff at all, and keeping the multiplayer community from fragmenting by making sure that everyone has access to the same maps (three weeks later, but still) is good for the game's long-term health.

Are you still rocking Gears 3, or has your shooter playtime moved on to greener (well, browner) patches?
