Gears of War 3 Thanksgibbing Event is Full of Exploding Chickens

on November 22, 2011 4:45 PM

Gears of War 3 is at it again with one of their special weekend events, this time the appropriately titled “Thanksgibbing”. The modifier this week? Shotguns are replaced with the boomshot easter-egg weapon from the campaign, the Cluckshot. It functions exactly the same, except it uses exploding chickens for ammo. Seriously.

In addition, the Versus Booster Pack will be available as a required download on Thursday. This pack will bring in five new maps to multiplayer: Bullet Marsh and Clocktower from the first game and the three maps from the Horde Command Pack DLC.

The Versus Booster Pack will be a required download to play live, but I’m sure you’re all OK with downloading free maps right?
