A new Gears Of War 3 DLC will be available Jan 17th for 800 MSP (free to those who have the season pass).
Called Fenix Rising, the DLC will includes new maps, new characters skins and a new XP system.
There will be 5 new maps, all from the history of series. Academy is set in the military school Marcus was destined to attend, but defied tradition by skipping. Anvil takes place in the destroyed fortress of Anvegad, while Depths is where Marcus' dad, Adam Fenix, was held captive. Escalation takes place in and around the Fenix household and The Slab is the prison that Dom broke Marcus out of way back in Gears 1. All five of the maps are playable across Versus Multiplayer, Horde and Beast Mode.
The skins offer are spread across COG and Locust designs. The pack offers up Recruit Clayton, Thrashball Cole, Savage Marauder and Savage Kantus character models.
The new XP system will let players to effectively "Prestige" once they hit level 100. Chose to do this and your experience and rank will be reset and your rank icon colour will change. This is possible up to three times, moving from Bronze to Red, Green and then Gold.
Each Prestige level (Epic are calling it "Re-up") after Bronze also awards the player an exclusive, custom weapon skin. These are: Re-Up Plasma – Animated flowing plasma in gold, Re-Up Omen – Shiny, red Omen, Re-Up Electric – Animated, golden electric shocks.
