Gears of War 3 gets a ‘Season Pass’

The 'Liquid Metal' Lancer. All yours if you buy the Season Pass.

Nope, that’s not a euphemism for ‘delayed’, but an option to buy the first four instalments of downloadable content at an early discounted rate.  Yes, that means at least four map packs or similar… but there are no actual details on the DLC yet other than it will add to the campaign and multiplayer.  The first piece of DLC is apparently due to arrive in November already.

The Gears of War 3 Season Pass can be purchased on September 20 on Xbox Live. It will cost 2400 MS Points ($30 / approximately R240), which is around 33% cheaper than buying the DLC individually.  To sweeten the deal, the Season Pass will also give you an exclusive Liquid Metal Weapon Set.

And if the date of September 20 sounds familiar – that’s the date Gears of War 3 launches worldwide.  In case you need reminding.
