New Gears of War 3 DLC: be General Raam

Three hours of Pre-Gears 1 campaign.

Gears of War 3 will expand again on 13th December with Raam's Shadow, Epic has announced.

In it, you play as General Raam, the final boss of Gears of War 1. And you must storm the human stronghold of Ilima City in a campaign set pre-Gears of War 1 and lasting around three hours.

You'll also play as new COG team Zeta Squad, lead by Michael Barrick and filled out by Lt. Minh Young Kim, Tai Kaliso and new girl Alicia Valera.

On top of that, there are six new multiplayer characters, the Chocolate Weapon Set and an extra 250 gamerpoints.

Alone, the content costs 1200 Microsoft Points.

Raam's Shadow is free to owners of the 2400 MSP Gears of War 3 Season Pass.
