Gears of War 3 Getting a Free Map Pack on November 24
This year, the Gears of War 3 team at Epic are going to be giving thanks on Thanksgiving by giving us all a free map pack. Called the Versus Booster Map Pack,” this pack will include five maps for you to play some crazy competitive multiplayer against your friends on. Two of the maps will be Gears 1 redubs, and the other three will be from the briefly delayed Horde Command Pack, which you can also buy today.
Feeling like you’re being screwed by this? Don’t. If you pay money for those maps, you get skins and new Horde fortifications and stuff, too! Yeah! Also, the Horde Command Pack unlocks the maps for Horde, and the Versus Booster Pack unlocks them for competition. So they’re different.
What sucks about this, though, is that the Xbox Live people are going to have to work on Thanksgiving! Awwwwwwww. I guess they have less to be thankful about.
