Gears of War 3 is set to receive it’s final DLC content “Forces of Nature,” next month on March 27. The pack includes three new maps and two remade maps, plus some character and weapon skins.
The remake maps will include fan-favorites, Raven Down (small as ever, but this time the map is covered in dramatic, badass snow) and Jacinto (the weather changes from a light rain to heavy downpour as matches go on). As for the new maps, there’s Aftermath (a tsunami-ravaged park where players will have to deal with water and earthquakes), Artillery (a military base that’s being affected by a tornado) and lastly, Cove (a foggy port town).
The Forces of Nature pack also includes four new character skins, the “limited edition” versions of pre-order skins and the Savage Hunter, a completely new skin plus seven new weapon skins, two of which will need to be unlocked with play. There will also be four “Elemental Cleavers” hidden on four of the maps. The Snow Cleaver can throw a stunning gust of icy wind at an enemy while the Emulsion Cleaver explodes on impact. Players who get 25 kills with these weapons in Beast or Horde mode can unlock achievements for their troubles.
Forces of Nature will also be bringing back Guardian Mode, a Versus game type from Gears 2 in which a team will no longer respawn should the team leader be taken out.
The pack should cost 800 MS points, unless you’re a season pass holder! Forces of Nature comes out March 27th.
