Attention of all three of you Xbox 360 owners who don't own any copies of Gears of War: Microsoft and Epic Games have announced the Gears of War Triple Pack, a $30 bundle that includes the original Gears of War and its sequel, as well as the vast majority of downloadable content that was released for both games.
According to today's press release, the multiplayer-focused DLC totals to about 19 maps. What’s missing is the first map pack for Gears, “Multiplayer Map Pack 1” and the “Hidden Fronts” map pack, which isn’t a big deal considering that you can still download both on Xbox Live for the price of zero dollars.
Here's a shot of the box art:
== TEASER ==Perhaps the coolest bit of DLC the Triple Pack offers is the “Road to Ruin” campaign mission for Gears of War 2, which gives you the opportunity to play as Marcus and Dom dressed as Theron guards. The mission itself revolves around getting into the Nexus, and you get two options for the approach: go stealth with Theron outfits or bust in with guns blazing.
Here's some shots of Gears of War, in case you forgot (or don't know) what it looks like:
