Pre-Purchase Gears of War 3 DLC With the Season Pass

Gears of War 3 doesn’t roadie run onto retail shelves until September 20th, but already there are four DLC add-ons planned for release over the course of the next year, beginning in November. These packs are said to contain “hours of campaign and multiplayer mayhem” beyond what’s offered in the main game.

If you’d like to lock up all four packs early and save some cash in the process, Epic Games will be releasing a Season Pass on the Xbox Live Marketplace on Gears of War 3 launch day. The pre-purchase ticket will cost a meaty 2400 Microsoft points (that’s $30), which is actually a 33% discount on the total price it will cost to buy all the DLC individually. The Season Pass will also come with a Liquid Metal Weapon Set as an extra, exclusive bonus.

If the content in the planned expansions amounts to what the All Fronts Collection brought to Gears of War 2, the extra $30 should be worth it for true Gears fans.
