Freshly announced today, Gears of War 3 will be receiving the first DLC pack on 1st November. This pack is called the Horde Command Pack and will include new characters and maps, as well as new fortification upgrades. The full official details are listed below:

New Maps
-Blood Drive - The Jacinto Medical Plaza was overwhelmed by evacuated citizens after the government-sanctioned Hammer Strikes, and the ensuing riots quickly turned this safe haven into a dangerous inferno. An abundance of high ground and funneled choke points make this map a returning favorite to Horde.

-Rustlung - Once the pride of the Royal Tyran Navy, the foredecks of this decommissioned battleship are now riddled with bullet holes. Any team with the fortitude to hold the exposed central torpedo bay will find that the ship's Loader has been replaced with a battle-ready Silverback mech suit.

-Azura - This island resort was once the exclusive domain of Sera's educated elite, but the tranquil water gardens and lush foliage have become a hotly contested combat zone. Dual snipers overlook a powerful explosive weapon, while the defensive central platform may be your last resort of retreat.

New Characters
-Onyx Guard
-Big Rig Dizzy


New Weapon Skins
-Team Plasma
-Jungle Camo

New Fortifications
-Command Center - A brand new type of fortification that allows you to call in fire support from sniper teams, mortar strikes and even multiple Hammers of Dawn.

-Decoy Upgrade - A new fortification level that turns your decoy into an Onyx Guard bot that will fight in your defense.

-Sentry Upgrade - This upgrade adds a fire bolt sentry that deals much more damage and is very effective against Berserkers.

-Silverback Upgrade - This advancement allows you to upgrade your Silverback exo-suit with devastating rockets and extra levels of repair cost reduction.

All of this is also playable in Beast mode. Horde Command Pack will cost 800MSP, but for those who brought the Season Pass(priced at 2400MSP) will have it automatically downloaded. To add to the list of additions this pack brings, achievement hunters will be glad to know it brings 250G. This could help out those who are participating in the Gamerscore Leauge.
