Epic Announces Gears of War 3 Season Pass & Liquid Metal Weapon Skins

Epic Games is following the new trend of offering a season pass purchase for upcoming Gears of War 3 DLC.  In fact the Gears of War 3 season pass will allow you to buy all 4 planned DLC packages for 2400 MS points up front, which is 33% cheaper than if you purchased each bit of Gears 3 DLC separately.  That may sound like a hefty investment, but you have to figure that each of the 4 pieces of planned DLC for this game will run anywhere from 500 to 800 points, so in the end you will be saving money if you cough it up early.  The best part about this deal for people that like to have exclusive content is that you’ll also get a liquid metal weapon skins pack!

Liquid Metal Lancer

I don’t know about you, but I already have 2400 MS points earmarked for the Gears of War 3 Season Pass!  What fan wouldn’t?  Oh yeah, the poor a*s 10 year olds that have to ask Mommy and Daddy for some extra allowance money.  Suck on it you no job having adolescents!  Your foul mouthed a*ses shouldn’t be playing this game anyway, go to church or something.

Who is this Bald Warrior?

The first DLC package that is included with the Season Pass will drop this November.  I’m curious to find out who the fellow is above, because I’m guessing that he’ll be part of the DLC package for Gears 3.  Regardless of your thoughts on the whole Season Pass scheme this Gears 3 package is a must buy.  33% off is still better than 0%, and most people that buy a Gears game will also buy all of its encompassing DLC, so this should be a no brainer.  The Season Pass will be available to buy on September 20, 2011, which just so happens to be the launch date of the game itself.  For the official announcement from Epic on the Gears 3 Season Pass read on after the break.  You’ve been wanting some T-1000 skins for your lancer…
