Second DLC for Gears of War 3, “RAAM’s Shadow” set for December

 second dlc for gears of war 3 raams shadow set december raam screenshotThat season pass option for Gears of War 3 is sounding better and better all the time. Epic Games and Microsoft have announced the second of four planned DLCs for Gears of War 3, and this one will bring back the OG boss from the first Gears of War, General RAAM.

The “RAAM’s Shadow” DLC will be available on December 13, and contain six new multiplayer characters, the Chocolate Weapon Set, an additional 250 achievement points and a three-hour story set before the events of the original Gears of War.

The story will feature Zeta Squad as they help with the evacuation of Ilima City due to a Locust Kryll storm under the command of General RAAM. The team will feature the character Michael Barrick from the comics, as well as Lt. Minh Young Kim from the first Gears, Tai Kaliso from Gears of War 2, as well as a new character.

For those that have forgotten or never played the first game, General RAAM was the final boss and the main antagonist throughout Gears of War. He was a hulking beast—right up until (Spoiler alert) you put several torque bow arrows and various other projectiles firmly in his head.

The DLC will also feature a shift in perspective, and have you play as RAAM as he attacks the humans.

“RAAM’s imposing size and strength, along with his Kryll shield, make him one of the most powerful and daunting foes in the ‘Gears’ universe,” Epic Games Design Director Cliff Bleszinski said. “We think fans are going to have a blast unleashing hell upon the poor humans for the first time in a campaign setting.”

“RAAM’s Shadow” will be the second DLC released, following the November 1 DLC release of “Horde Command Pack.”

The first DLC will cost 800 MS Points ($10), while the second will cost 1200 MS Points ($15). If you are interested in both, the season pass is the way to go. For 2400 MS Points ($30) you will receive both of these packs, as well as two other unannounced DLCs.
