A new set of downloadable content for Gears of War 3, Forces of Nature, will be out on March 27. It includes three new character skins, three new maps, two old maps, seven weapon skins and Gears of War 2's Guardian Mode. Forces of Nature will cost 800 MSP. [GameTrailers]
I hate to sound like a typical, anonymous entitled gamer, but this DLC and almost all of GoW3's DLC has been an enormous disappointment. I paid $30 for that season pass expecting new content, not recycled skins we already got and forgettable map packs. Seriously. With the character skins, they took skins we already could have through preordering and handed them out. I'm fine with them releasing preorder exclusives as paid DLC, but in the SEASON PASS? The thing that the most likely purchaser would also be the guy who preordered and got some of these exclusive skins? That's sheer laziness, and it kind of reflects upon exactly what DLC means to the developers.
I love the game, but I won't be purchasing anymore season passes ever again. Sometimes DLC can really add value to a game and be worth every penny— this is not one of those times.
