Gears of War 3 “Horde Command” DLC delayed [UPDATED: “Horde” DLC is available now}

gears of war 3 reviewThe first big piece of downloadable content for Gears of War 3 has been delayed, leaving gamers wondering when they’ll get their hands on the “Horde Command” add-on.

The DLC was announced back in early October, and was expected to arrive November 1. A message posted on the Epic Games forum indicates that a “technical issue” is to blame for the delay.

“We apologize to those of you who are anxiously awaiting to play,” states the post from one of the forum’s moderators. “We know this is disappointing news as we’ve seen a lot of posts today showing excitement for this content. We have folks working around the clock to resolve this issue ASAP so you can all play and enjoy the Command Pack.”

Joystiq reports that the delay for “Horde Command” will not affect the scheduled release of the second DLC pack, “RAAM’s Shadow,” due out in December.

[Update: Looks like the issues have been resolved.  The “Horde Command” DLC is available to download now]
