Gears of War 3 Add-On 'Fenix Rising' Launches Today

Bringing 5 brand new multiplayer maps, new character skins and an overhauled experience system to Gears of War 3, "Fenix Rising" allows gamers to rank up through level 100 four times, reaping exclusive rewards as they do so.

Players who reach the lofty heights of level 100 will then have the option to "Re-up", resetting their experience and rank (although all other progression will be saved). Colour coding will differentiate elite characters, and each Re-up will award the player an custom weapon skin that cannot be earnt any other way.

The new multiplayer maps are Academy, Anvil, Depths, Escalation, and the Slab; the new character skins are Recruit Clayton, Thrashball Cole - Limited Edition, Savage Marauder and Savage Kantus - Limited Edition.

Fenix Rising is now available on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft Points, or included as part of the "Gears of War 3" Season Pass. The Season Pass nets you Fenix Rising and all the previously released add-on content, as well as secure access to one more upcoming game add-on for 2400 Microsoft Points - a 33 percent discount.
