Gears of War 3 is out today, as the more bleary-eyed among you who went out for the game's midnight launch last night are no doubt aware. A "Season Pass" offered in connection with the release long ago confirmed that at least four DLC offerings will be released over the next year. Now, Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski has offered some hints about what we might expect from it.
"We have some DLC that's coming up. We've confirmed we'll be doing campaign DLC," Bleszinski said in an interview with The Telegraph. From the sound of things, the story-driven extension won't necessarily be traveling to the expected familiar places.
"One thing I can tell you is that you're not going to see Marcus or Dom or Cole in it. I believe that DLC should be unique and cool, like [GTA IV's] Lost and the Damned [and] Gay Tony, [and Borderlands'] Mad Moxie's Underdome Riot."
That's all he would reveal, but it's certainly enough to make that $30 season pass -- which is essentially a DLC pre-order package covering the upcoming year -- seem like more of a worthwhile buy for the serious fans.
