Fenix Rising, the third major game add-on for Gears of War 3 has been released on to XBLA.
Fans should expect five new multiplayer maps inspired by the “life and experiences” of Marcus Fenix – Academy, Anvil, Depths, Escalation, and the Slab, four new character skins and an overhaul of the experience system to allow players to rank up through level 100 four times to unlock exclusive emblems and weapon skins.
With the purchase of the add-on, players who attain level 100 will have a choice to “Re-up” for another tour of duty to showcase their valour and dedication as elite Gears fans. Experience and rank will be reset, but all other progression (including TrueSkill rating) will remain intact.
Players will be able to ”Re-up” three times, earning new wings colours each time: Red, Green, and Gold. The rank number will also be coloured Red, Green, or Blue. Each “Re-up” level also awards the player an exclusive, custom weapon skin that cannot be obtained by any other means.
For all you completionists out there it’s available on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft Points or included as part of the Gears of War 3 Season Pass.
