Free Gears of War 3 DLC incoming

Eurogamer: A new complimentary DLC pack is on its way to Gears of War 3 later this month, developer Epic has announced.

Available for download from 24th November, the Versus Booster Map Pack offers five maps for public matchmaking playlists - two from Gears 1 (Swamp and Clocktower) and three from the just-released Horde Command Pack (Azura, Rustlung and Blood Drive). (Gears of War 3, Xbox 360)

Are there 5 maps for free? Downloaded Command pack with the season pass and I got Azura, Blood Drive and Rustlung. 2 free maps would been correct :P

And already after 2 week the people who didnt buy the season get the map pack for free, its a damn ripoff for us with seasonpass. Nice Epic games for stealing 2400MS points.

The Command Pack is for Horde *only*. You can't play those maps on Versus.

That is why it is 5 free maps for versus. So nobody got ripped off.

However, consider the fact that more people get to play the *free* maps mean larger community, I'm all for it.

Isn't some of it already on the CD though? I remember hearing that they left out maps in the final game that were already on the CD...

Here's the video I think: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

IDK if this is info taken from the CD or not but it wasw before GoW3 was released. I don't see swamp and rustlung in there though. Maybe "day one" is supposed to be rustlung

Hell yeah I can't wait for new maps. Being free is a big plus because it won't split the fanbase.

Clocktower? Sweet! Next up? Escalation? I can dream cant I? But they'd be silly not to bring it back.

They should release ALL Gears 1 and 2 maps for free.

Wait! Wait! No! No!

According to some on n4g, MS doesn't allow free DLC!

I was only interested in the new maps anyway.

very kool for the gamers that have not already payed for the "already on the disk" Horde command pack but very NOT kool for those that already payed for it just for the maps.
