New downloadable content for the Xbox 360 exclusive “Gears of War" is on the way and what better way to celebrate the New Year than to meet friends new and old online and greet them with the sounds of a chainsaw? Sponsored by the Discovery Channel, the complimentary new content will be available for download via Xbox Live Marketplace early Thursday morning, January 11.
By now most of the current maps have been memorised, analysed and brutalised, but this map pack will feature two new maps including one where players fight around a downed King Raven helicopter.
Below, please find descriptions of the new maps:
* Raven Down: A Raven Helicopter has gone down in the middle of a large scale battle with the omnipresent Locust Horde. Gears have taken out the Seeder and gamers join Delta Forces moving into the crash site from all angles to search for survivors.
* Old Bones: In an attempt to eradicate any traces of human history and culture, the Locust Horde has emerged under Sera’s Capitaline Museums and has begun to destroy them brick by brick. Each gamer’s mission is to help the Delta Force recapture the museums before all remnants of humankind’s existence are obliterated.
Additionally, the Discovery Channel will be giving away an unprecedented two million Microsoft Points for use on Xbox Live Marketplace. Gamers can visit www.readyaimfire.com
