Gears Of War 3 Fenix Rising Map Pack Launches Tomorrow

January 16, 2012, By Christian Davis

Have all of your friends abandoned you for Activision’s latest shooter? Yeah, I feel your pain. With so many other great multiplayer games out there, our friends have seem to forgotten about the games we were playing before Modern Warfare 3 came out such as Epic’s Gears of War 3.

Hopefully, the upcoming Fenix Rising Map Pack will bring everyone back together again. If you’ve been keeping count, this is the third bit of DLC that has been released for Gears of War 3 and we hope they keep delivering more and more content for one of the best shooters and most addicting shooters of 2011. So what exactly comes with the Fenix Rising Map Pack?

The new add-on will feature a multitude of new content. Firstly, we’ll have five new multiplayer maps based of the single player campaign. Anvil, Depths, Escalation,  The Slab, and Academy are all waiting for us to gruesomely dismember each other on.

Along with the multiplayer maps, we’ll also have four new multiplayer skins for Clayton Carmine, Cole Train, the Locust Marauder and Kantus. It’s great to have so much character variety in this game as opposed to the previous titles. While these additions to the game may be expected, the last and best feature is the “Re-Up” addition. Much like Call of Duty’s prestige functionality, players will be given the ability to reset their stats (aside from their True Skill ranking) and start over again. Players will be able to re-up a total of three times, unlocking a new weapon skin (Re-Up Plasma, Re-Up Omen, and Re-Up Electric)  and rank icon color (Red, Green and Gold).

The Fenix Rising Map Pack will be included with the Gears of War 3 Season Pass if you bought it but if you haven’t, it will cost you 800 Microsoft Points.
