Epic Games Says Thanks And Gives Us Five Free Multiplayer Maps

November 1, 2011, By Christian Davis

Novermber 24th was just a regular day but now that Epic Games is giving out free Gears of War 3 DLC, I’ll probably mark the day on my calendar now. The Versus Booster Map Pack is Epic Game’s and Microsoft’s way of saying thanks to the entire Gears of War fan base. The multiplayer for Gears of War 3 is already a lot of fun and from the launch date, there were already a lot fast paced and action packed maps to play on. Now we’re getting five more, free of charge. Can’t go wrong with that. The maps in the upcoming DLC aren’t all new however. Some returning favorites are going to be revitalized for Gears of War 3 and we can’t wait to stain the ground with some Locust blood.

From the original Gears of War game the maps Swamp and Clocktower are going to get the Gears of War 3 treatment. The three new maps are Azura, Rustlung, and Blood Drive (get a glimpse of these below in the trailer).

To be clear, this map pack is only for the multiplayer maps. It does not include the new characters (Big Rig Dizzy, Bernie Mataki, Onyx Guard) or the Horde fortification upgrades. If you want those, you’ll have to purchase the Horde Command Pack which is out now!

Here’s a trailer for the Horde Command DLC Pack if you’re unsure on whether you should pick up the title or not. As usual, let us know what you think in the comments below.
