Third add-on for Gears of War 3

  • Five new maps
  • 800 Microsoft points
  • Four new character skins

Microsoft and Epic release Fenix Rising, the third major game add-on to Gears of War 3. Featuring five new multiplayer maps inspired by the life and experiences of Marcus Fenix, “Fenix Rising” also introduces four character skins and a new experience system that allows players to rank up through level 100 four times to unlock exclusive emblems and weapon skins.

With the purchase of the add-on, players who attain level 100 will have a choice to re-up for another tour of duty to showcase their valor and dedication as elite Gears of War fans. Their experience and rank will be reset, but all other progression (including TrueSkill rating) will remain intact. Players can re-up up to three times, earning a new wings colour each time – red, green, and gold. The rank number will also be colored Red, Green, or Blue. Each re-up level also awards the player an exclusive, custom weapon skin that cannot be obtained by any other means.

Available on Xbox Live for 800 Microsoft Points or included as part of the Gears of War 3 Season Pass, Fenix Rising expands the multiplayer battlefield with five new maps – Academy, Anvil, Depths,  Escalation, and the Slab – delivering many hours of frenetic online action across Versus Multiplayer, Horde and Beast Mode. Additionally, players who purchase Fenix Rising will gain access to four new character skins (Recruit Clayton, Thrashball Cole – Limited Edition, Savage Marauder and Savage Kantus – Limited Edition) for use in Versus Multiplayer and Horde Mode.

Players can obtain Fenix Rising and all the previously released add-on content for Gears of War 3, including RAAM’s Shadow and the Horde Command Pack, and secure access to one more upcoming game add-on by purchasing the Gears of War 3 Season Pass for 2400 Microsoft Points, which entitles them to the first four game add-ons for a total discount of 33 percent.
