Gears of War 3: Horde Command Pack DLC
The first DLC available for Gears of War 3 on the Xbox 360 will be the Horde Command Pack for 800 points (ten bucks real money) on November 1, 2011. The Horde Command Pack will be a nice addition for those of you addicted to Horde 2.0 like I am.
This pack will introduce an all new defensive mechanism called Command Center, which will allow you to call in off-site snipers, mortar rounds, and the ever popular Hammer of Dawn.
Decoys will be getting an upgrade, with a new decoy type called Onyx Guard, which will fire back at the enemy.
Sentry guns gain an upgrade that adds a fire bolt sentry that deals much higher damage, and adds fire damage as well. Berserkers will love this one!
Silverbacks also gain an upgrade, which reduces the cost of repairs by another 33%, and adds rockets to their arsenal.
The Horde Command Pack will also contain three new maps, three new characters, and two new weapon skins.
The new maps are Azure which is an old island resort, Blood Drive (from GoW2) which is an abandoned hospital, and Rustlung which is a decommissioned battleship. The new characters include Bernie, Big Red Dizzy, and the Onyx Guard. The new skins are called Team Plasma, and Jungle Camo.
