RAAM’s Shadow Campaign DLC Adds Hours Of New Story

October 20, 2011, By Christian Davis

Our first add on of Gears of War 3 campaign DLC brings back an old enemy from the original Gears of War, General RAAM. I’m sure you remember him? The hulking locust general that walked around with a large blade, killing our favorite characters. He’s back and ready to kill you and your crew all over again . The new DLC takes us in the storyline that precedes the first Gears of War title. If you’ve always wanted to know the beginning of the Locust vs COG war, now’s your chance.

“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.” Since this takes place before the original Gears, who will you be taking control of? Some very familiar faces such as Lt. Minh Young Kim, Tai Kaliso, Michael Barrick (from the comics), and a new female partner, Alicia Valera.

Though fighting as a new squad is already cool, players will also be able to take control of RAAM and storm the COG stronghold from his perspective. If that still isn’t enough. the DLC add on also comes with six new multiplayer characters, the Chocolate Weapon Set and an additional 250 Gamerscore.

“RAAM’s imposing size and strength, along with his Kryll shield, make him one of the most powerful and daunting foes in the ‘Gears’ universe,” said Bleszinski. “We think fans are going to have a blast unleashing hell upon the poor humans for the first time in a campaign setting.”

The RAAM Shadow Campaign is set to release on December 13th for 1,200 Microsoft Points.
