Gears 3: Fenix Rising Map Pack Launches Today

DLC

Gears of War 3 fans can hail “Fenix Rising,” today as the third major DLC add-on featuring five spectacular new multiplayer maps inspired by the life and experiences of Marcus Fenix is released onto the marketplace. In addition the map pack, Fenix Rising also introduces four character skins and a new experience system that allows players to rank up through level 100 four times to unlock exclusive emblems and weapon skins.

With the purchase of the add-on, players who attain level 100 will have a choice to “Re-up” for another tour of duty to showcase their valour and dedication as elite “Gears of War” fans. Their experience and rank will be reset, but all other progression (including TrueSkill rating) will remain intact. Players can “Re-up” up to three times, earning new wings colours each time: Red, Green, and Gold. The rank number will also be coloured Red, Green, or Blue. Each “Re-up” level also awards the player an exclusive, custom weapon skin that cannot be obtained by any other means.

Available on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft Points or included as part of the Gears of War 3 Season Pass, Fenix Rising expands the multiplayer battlefield with five stunning new maps – Academy, Anvil, Depths, Escalation, and the Slab – delivering endless hours of frantic online action across Versus Multiplayer, Horde and Beast Mode. Additionally, players who purchase “Fenix Rising” will gain access to four new character skins (Recruit Clayton, Thrashball Cole – Limited Edition, Savage Marauder and Savage Kantus – Limited Edition) for use in Versus Multiplayer and Horde Mode.
