Gears Of War 3 RAAM's Shadow DLC Now Available

Comes with a warning for Season Pass holders.

Microsoft has announced that the ‘RAAM’s Shadow’ DLC for Gears of War is now available on Xbox Live for 1200 MS Points.  The DLC is claimed to have an additional 3 hours worth of gameplay for the campaign mode.

“Set in the chaos of post-Emergence Day Sera, “RAAM’s Shadow” drops players into a new team of Gears known as Zeta Squad as they attempt to evacuate Ilima City and protect the citizens against a Locust Kryll storm. Taking on the infamous Locust leader from the original “Gears of War,” General RAAM, Zeta features the familiar faces of Michael Barrick (from “Gears of War” comics fame), Lt. Minh Young Kim (“Gears of War”) and Tai Kaliso (“Gears of War 2”), and introduces a new female comrade, Alicia Valera.”

The DLC also has a mission where you take control of RAAM and storm a human stronghold, the first time in the Gears of War series where you play a mission from the Locust point of view.  As well as the 3 additional hours of campaign, players will also get access to the  “Chocolate Weapon Set, new Achievements worth an additional 250 Gamerscore and six new multiplayer characters, including General RAAM, the Theron Elite Commando, Alicia Valera, Lt. Minh Young Kim, Tai Kaliso and Michael Barrick.”

Also, a trailer.


For those of you who have purchased a Season Pass, please be aware there is currently an issue with the DLC, meaning if you try and buy it you’ll be charged (it should be free for Pass holders). It’s advised you hold off until the problem is sorted.
