Gears of War 3 is jumping on the DLC bandwagon with “RAAM’s Shadow,” an add-on campaign slated for release on December 13.
The campaign precedes the events of the first Gears of War game and resurrects a few familiar faces for gameplay, including Tai Kaliso, Lt. Kim, and Michael Barrick from the comic version of the series. New character Alicia Valera also joins Zeta Squad as they scramble to evacuate Illima City on the heels of Emergence Day.
“RAAM’s Shadow” will retail for $15 / 1200 MSP (but it’s free for Gears of War 3 Season Pass owners) and clock in at three hours. Players will also be treated to six additional multiplayer characters, the deliciously named “chocolate” weapon set, and Achievements totaling 250 Gamescore. And the icing on the cake? “In addition to fighting as a new squad of Gears, players will step into the boots of RAAM himself, and for the first time storm the human stronghold from the perspective of one of the series’ most legendary bosses.”
