The second major game add-on for Gears of War 3, RAAM’s Shadow DLC is now available to download via Xbox LIVE.
Set before the events of the original Gears of War, the content will feature more than three hours of campaign gameplay. Players will be introduced to Zeta Squad, who are lead by Michael Barrick and comprised of familiar faces such as Lt. Minh Young Kim and Tai Kaliso, as well as a new female COG called Alicia Valera. Zeta’s main objective is to evacuate Ilima City and protect citizens from a Locust Kryll storm, but they’ll eventually have to take on the infamous Locust leader, General RAAM.
In addition to fighting as Zeta squad, players will be given the chance to step into the boots of RAAM himself and, for the first time, storm the human stronghold from the perspective of one of the series’ most legendary bosses.
That’s not it all though, as the RAAM’s Shadow DLC will also include six new multiplayer characters, the Chocolate Weapon Set and an additional 250 achievement points.
RAAM’s Shadow is available to download now via Xbox LIVE for 1200 Microsoft Points. If you’re the proud owner of a Gears of War 3 Season Pass, the content is free.
However, at the time of writing, we understand users with the Season Pass are experiencing issues downloading RAAM’s Shadow. The content should be free, but Season Pass users are being asked to pay the full 1200 Microsoft Points. Epic has stated they are investigating the issue, and it should be fixed soon.
