This week, Microsoft and Epic Games announced the release of the Fenix Rising downloadable content map pack for Gears of War 3. In case you haven’t been keeping track, this is already the third downloadable content pack for Gears 3, and, thus, the third content pack included in the Gears of War 3 Season Pass, and all that within a period of only three months.

Fenix Rising includes five new multiplayer maps “inspired by the life and experiences of Marcus Fenix”, plus four character skins and an update to the XP system that lets players rank up through Level 100 four times, by adding a colour to their rank number denoting how many times they’ve been through a “Re-Up”. Hitting these ranks will unlock exclusive weapon skins that can’t be unlock by any other means. The new maps are named Academy, Anvil, Depths, Escalation and the Slab. They’re available in Versus, Horde and Beast Modes. The new skins – Recruit Clayton, Thrashball Cole – Limited Edition, Savage Marauder and Savage Kantus – Limited Edition – will be available in Versus and Horde Modes. The Fenix Rising map pack is available for 800 Microsoft Points, unless you’ve got the Season Pass.
