I was surprised by fans’ willingness to stick it out in long lines at PAX to see games that are practically upon us. One such title was Gears of War 3, which is going to follow the growing trend of letting players pay for all of the downloadable content ahead of time. Why do this? Because you get a discounted price.
The Gears of War 3 Season Pass will be purchasable for 2400 Microsoft Points when the game hits on September 20. This payment gets you four DLC installments — the first of which is coming in November — for 33% off what it would cost to buy every pack individually upon release. Also, you get the exclusive Liquid Metal Weapon Set.
Yes, people, you get a gun that is actually Robert Patrick in disguise. Probably.
