Gears 3 to Get Free Versus Booster Pack DLC on Thanksgiving

Epic had a small snafu with the first bit of DLC for Gears of War 3 today, but all will be forgotten come Thanksgiving when fans of the series will get a free piece of DLC in the ‘Versus Booster Pack’.  This free DLC will consist of 5 new maps for the game’s multiplayer component.  Three of the free maps are already available today (Azura, Rustlung, Blood Drive) if you pay for the Horde Command Pack, but two others will be classic maps from Gears 1.  The two classic maps will be Clocktower and the Swamp (Bullet Marsh), with Clocktower being one of my personal favorites.

Anything for free is alright in my book, so kudos to Epic for cutting us some slack.  For those trolls out there that’ll find something wrong with this offering just know that your exclusive characters from the Horde Command Pack will still be exclusive to paying customers.  The only piece of the Horde Pack being given away for free on Thanksgiving will be the maps themselves, so the Horde Command Pack still has value today.  You’ve been thinking that you’d take just about anything for free…
