Gears of War 3 Season Pass Available Sept. 20th

The launch of “Gears of War 3” on Sept. 20 is still a few weeks away, but Microsoft and Epic Games are already announcing that there’s more to come by the way of multiple game add-ons for the year’s biggest blockbuster. Revealed today, the “Gears of War 3” Season Pass entitles you to the first four installments of downloadable content that will roll out over the course of the next year, with the first releasing this November.

Adding hours of campaign and multiplayer mayhem, these game add-ons will be must-haves for any “Gears” fan, and the “Gears of War 3” Season Pass is your ticket to getting them at a discount the day they release. Available Sept. 20 for 2400 Microsoft points on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, the season pass represents a 33 percent savings versus purchasing the add-ons individually, and also includes an exclusive Liquid Metal Weapon Set.

The spectacular conclusion to one of the most celebrated sagas in video games, “Gears of War 3” has already surpassed 1.3 million pre-orders worldwide, making it the fastest pre-selling Xbox exclusive in the history of the platform. As further testament to the immense anticipation surrounding the game, 1.3 million players played more than 20 million matches in the “Gears of War 3” multiplayer beta this spring, helping refine and polish the hotly anticipated juggernaut.

      anyway Microsoft can make more money. Oh my Gosh stop screwing over the players for content that should of came with the game especial for someone spending 150 bucks. Man so basically the game is going to cost almost a 100 dollars when its said and done.

    • Sandy

      No, I’m of the mind that the Epic edition (not to mention the Gears console) should have come with this. Yeah, it’s only $25, but look at what I’m already popping out for the game. I’m a huge Gears fan, I run a Gears group and I’ll buy this season pass but it really leaves an ill taste in my mouth to do so. Just wrong guys.

    • Rahlforge

      just as a random thought, epic took the time and money to produce the griffin character and then provided him totally free…several dozen hours that they will not be reimbursed for and we are complaining about dlc? I reiterate, the cost of the dlcs is not included in the estimation for the special editions…that cost is based upon the frivolities included in those editions. To include the dlc, the cost would have to increase to offset the time and money for developing the dlc. they even provided us with four weeks of beta and took our input to polish the game, and yet those of us who decided that we just had to have a console with the gears icon, or a statue of marcus somehow have decided that the cost of those things is no longer worth what we were originally going to pay for them, and now we deserve more? Epic has already done more to polish gears and provide extras for their fans than most developers ever do, and we’re still complaining? Shame on us. How selfish. you have obviously never run a business before, or you would understand that to produce these things after the primary sales period is a risk on the company’s part. I think they’re entitled to little reimbursement.

    • Draclion

      I buy 2 epic better have this in side the box!

    • Maniac970

      im buying the console… we should definitely get it 150 dollars PSHHHH try 425 dollars

    • Gamer Tag – MORANDO

      We can complain all we want to others are going to pay for it and create the demand…so we are going to have to shell out major bucks to have it all, perhaps $300.00 plus for one game, all the add ons etc etc…fuck!

    • Heyhey

      Wow, with all of the different weapon skins, you’re better off saving your money and sticking to the shipped skins if you want to be different from everyone else. At this point, it’s not special anymore. What’s the point of shelling out the extra money just to have what everyone else has? I just feel like Epic is milking people for all they’re worth. I’m a huge Gears fan, but it’s all getting to be a bit much. “Buy this! Then buy that! Buy this version so you can get this skin! Then buy that version so that you can get that character!” I really love the Gears franchise and I’m looking forward to playing Gears 3. And cue the troll comments…

      Lameee how much money you want ? , trillion?? , wtf

    • http://twitter.com/DaFoot DaFoot

      So, after spending cash on the game I have to spend more to be able to play (as I suspect online games will very quickly end up needing the DLC to be able to play)?

      I hate this sort of thing.

    • Boyandhisbird

      I agree, I’m getting the Epic Edition and would’ve really appreciated this already being included! And they know we’ll keep buying all the stuff they release later on! Come on Cliff, put your heavy foot down!!

    • P3G

      Well, could be interresting in fact.

      But I’ll wait to know exactly WHAT we’ll get for that price before purchase.

      If it’s about map packs, solo add-on ans such : deal.
      If it’s useless MP skins or whatever : don’t care.

      And as an achievement hunter, I really hope you won’t try to screw us with 4 great but without cheevos packs before releasing new ones with achievements.

      EPIC, you’ll have to tell us what you plan on releasing in the 4 DLCs you’ve announced to make sure you’ll sell your pass.

      Nah even tho I will get it this piss’s me off adding hours of campaign so you’ve removed part of the actual game that people like myself will buy the epic editon so thats a hunred pounds already and now your going to remove part of the game just sell that to us again later good bussiness but a gaint middle finger to us the customers its an inslut

    • Gamerofdeath

      The problem here is that Epic(and all companies) are not going to stop selling “non psysical” products… like capcom, people buying imaginary clothes with real money !!! THIS IS THE REAL THING !! I WANT TO MAKE ONE BUSINESS LIKE THESE !! In the past you buy a game and they sold the complete game… these days they finish the game and say “well done, sell “this game in 3 parts”… FREE UPDATES??… no theres no money they said, SOMEONE MUST HACK XBOX LIVE TOO, SOME HERO THERE??

    • Sscoalition9

      Already sounds like a shit-ton of download time..

    • Truegamer

      They delete my opinion… well thats not the freedom country as they said… “HACK XBOX LIVE” some heroes out there?

    • Energizer Gaming

      If were paying $150 bucks for a game we should get a season pass for free, EA at least did that ultimate edition thing with BFBC2 where if you buy the game new you get a VIP pass for free. and that was a $60 game. some of us are spending upwards of $400 on this game and were getting jipped out of $30 of content that should probably be in the game already if they have it finished. Thats greed right there, to me this has MS written all over it, not Epic, but i hope they are fighting this as much as they can cause its rediculous. i almost feel its a waste of money to get the DLC now, specially if its out the day of launch like what EA did with D age 2. i still havnt bought that piece of DLC cause it shouldve been IN the game. EPIC is one of the best and most community friendly developers out there, so i really hope they arent haarming their reputation with this peice of garbage, and that its all MS’ doing.

    • Energizer Gaming

      and for all you guys saying its JUST a discount, look at the bottom of the pic, it says “Four new releases, ONE low price”

      Dude I have been building up my free Microsoft points from “BING REWARDS” ever since the program came out in 5-16-2011 for just this thing so I an’t complaining.
      For me “ITS FREE” AHH HA HA HA! and all I had to do is do like 20 piece of cake searches on Bing every day, it takes not more then 5 min. and I think it’s awesome…check it out!!! 500 Bing points for 400 Microsoft points and you get 10-19 Bing points a day, you do the math.

    • Rsvegas

      sorry but WHY ARE YOU HAPPY for THIS??? you get DLC before game launch??? CONGRATULATIONS! i loved gears of war 2 but i will WAREZ the 3. episode… WHY? because you cut the game and you WILL sell the game disc as a full game… BUT YOU SHOULD TAKE THE DLC PARTS TO THE DISC!!!! OR!!!!!! you should take the DLCs about 2 month after game launch… BUT NOT BEFORE GAME LAUNCH!!!!! DLC DLC DLC… i thought Epic Games is a really good company BUT now i think Epic Games is a SHIT!!!! sorry but DLC before game launching??? FACEPALM!!!! 

      • Dpswow1

        You are not getting it before it launches you get the season pass when it becomes aviable and you get the DLC as it come out like with the Mortal Combat one. Give them a break they are just annouceing that they are going to have the deal. NOT actualy selling it before it comes out. 

      • Jonathan Rizo

        WTF? why would you need dlc before launch if the game isnt even playable you dumbass hahahahaha

    • Dpswow1

      GUYS GUYS GUYS don’t complain about them selling DLC all the time. The game disks only have so much room on them, they can’t fit everything they want in the game on the disk all the time and besides games play better when they are on your hard drive and it’s quieter then the system spining the disk all the time.

    • RSVEGAS

      WHY AREN’T YOU PUT TO THE GAME DISC??? AND THEN (ABOUT 2-3 MONTH) YOU CAN MAKE DLC… BUT CUT THE FULL GAME… FACEPALM!!!

      MY FRIENDS AND I WON’T BUY THE GAME… WE PROBABLY WAREZ IT OR WON’T PLAY THIS GAME… CONGRAT EPIC! DLC BEFORE GAME LAUNCHING HEH

      Really??? Stop complaining about every little detail… It’s worth the price… Yesterday was the last day to pre-order the epic edition…. Reason being, the statues are handcrafted… Thats worth 150 alone… If you can’t afford to play, then don’t play and leave it up to the real gears that own… Like me, Nancy the FIsh… Look it up…

      Epic is like my dealer! They gave me a little sample of the Gears of War 3 beta “crack”, and now I’m hooked! I need to get my fix! Now they got me fiending some Gears of War 3. Ya I know I can get some Gears 2, but it’s not the same. My wife is telling me I’ve changed. My kids tell me they don’t know me any more! My every waking minute is consumed by Horde mode, just to get me by! one day at a time, and one wave at a time. I can’t look at my self in the mirror. All I see is a COG! I dream of Golden Lancers….Then I wake-up and cry, for sadly all I have is a plain lancer. I’m haunted by Carmines! I still hear them cry out. I still see their faces or rather their helmets every where I go! I weep for Jacinto and all that was lost!

      who the dude on the season pass poster

    • EckotypeR

      wow! reading the comments is hilarious… people really cant grasp the fact that you save 33%, buy paying the $30 up front. lol

      $30 you get the first 4 DLC (because u paid in advance its no charge when they release)
      and the liquid metal skin set…

      its a deal if u ask me… and since gears next to never leaves my disc tray… im content with droping $30 on the first 4 DLC

    • Werewulf

      Personally i will BOYCOT this. Gameproducers get more greedy by the day on xbox. we already pay too much just to play on xbox live, then we pay too much on microsoft points for crappy add ons. Just imagine if they all turn out like call of duty is doing. Robing another 40 euros at minimum from gamers with a few stupid maps and a zombie map.
      But this is maybe even more outragous. They actually release an add on as the game comes out. giving us a discount card. bullshit they should appreciate what people are spending on their games already. and to get loyalty of their fans release add ons for free. or at least make the add ons more cheap. LIKE this message for BOYCOT

    • Warfight3r

      i’m guessing it works like the L.A Noire pass you pay upfront for the dlc and then download it with no extra charge when it comes out sounds like a good deal to me =]

    • James

      i will get this along with my gears 3 console and Adam Fenix, plus i ordered the game from amazon for my lil bro but i’m guna take the savage kantus coz he cant use it coz he dont have live lol also i have one question who is that guy on the picture above?

    • Rynosrus 707

      I
      remember when downloadable content and extras were a pleasant surprise
      far after a game was released. It was like “look what else we made for
      you guys to play while you were killing noobs.” Now every game on the
      release date has add-ons lined up for
      extra revenue. From the business side I understand. From the fan and
      gamer side I think it’s crooked as hell not to include parts of the game
      that are obviously already complete. Whats next? We sell you the first
      stage and you pay extra for each additional stage? I pre-ordered the
      special edition console and am a huge fan, I’m just really disappointed
      that it still isn’t enough to get the season pass.

      country costs 200 dollars and we always pay more, and I buy epic
      edition, limited edition with lancer and retro edition xbox 360 gow,
      grand total of 880 dollar and now I want to charge 2400MP, Because
      nothing brings you purchase this new dlc, I’m a fan but not stupid, I
      hate shopping such techniques bother me …POD came out cheaper because I knew where to buy the regular pressures of all of 1000 dollar in my country

    • Nicklongworth212

      the dlc especially the season pass should come with more characters i care more about who im playing as rather then what the gun looks like dont get me wrong i love weapon skins but especially on the COG side i find it harder find good characters to play as maybe theres one or two but on locust there are more characters to chose from

      I love Gears of War, but I just feel like it’s all about the money. We are paying all this money for game limited ed controllers, consoles, epic edition, and what not. For loyal fans cut us a better deal! We pay for live and it’s getting really expensive to be a gamer. And you can say don’t buy if you don’t like it, but I think it’s getting a little too much.

      This is BULLSHIT why do they insist on ruining such a great title with DLC…this is the same reason why i stopped playing “Call of Duty” too many goddamn DLC…and for what a few hours more of gameplay.. you really gotta be a fan of this title to wanna pay extra for a little more… VERY disappointing to think they would go all out for the end of such a great game… instead they choose to milk the fans for every nickle and dime..

      The season pass should be on the epic edition, its not fare that we have to pay 190 dollarst for the epic edition and the season pass. We dont get alot of addons on the epic edition is will only be fair if we revive  the person that pre- oder the epic edition the season pas

      Can you only buy it on Sept 20th or can you get  it say a week later???????

    • Jackbonham

      I’m from England and i personally think its an amazing offer, I mean if we are gonna get another 4 set of map packs, which will have atleast 3 maps in, thats better than buying all the bluddy cod ones for 40 quid

    • Moby D 07

      you’ve got to hand it to the game marketers as dirty as they play the game they know they are going to get people to spend the money on it. I’m in complete agreement with you guys the season pass should be included in the epic edition. I’ve had it preordered from the time it was announced and it always irritates me when they annouce this stuff in stages and charge you out the butt just because its new. I say if they don’t included the season pass in with the epic edition ill just be waiting until they do another bundle like they did with GOW2 maps.

      why not just make it 2100 msp why try rip people off for that little extra points? ?

      They are gonna give us a 33% discount, and a Liquid Metal weapon set that honestly don’t look so hot, what a nice way to be screwed, and I know, no one is forcing me to buy the season pass, it’s just that I always thought of EPIC games as a company that cared about its fan base, guess not so much huh?

    • GrizzlyDruid

      I can agree with many of you. i am gettin the system and have been tryin to save money for months now, on top on getting an additional copy for a brother as a birthday present. I mean seriously? at least give some of it to people gettin advanced purchase’s.

      omg r u serious u guys want us to by game, map packs, preorders form different stores just to get special characters ANDDDD season pass, r u serious this isnt even worth it…

    • LOLFACE

      i dont really care man 30 bucks SUCKS it’s still very expensive for 4
      maps bro you write that cause your from USA but in other countries it
      comes even MORE EXPENSIVE i really dont care that 30% off it breaks my
      balls that i have to pay for a pack of 4 maps,an extra mission for the
      campaign and a skin (which is the only thing I liked). You think its
      being a super fan paying 150 dollars for a game with “exclusive” content
      on it which i can get at 9.95 (i dont remember the exact price) and
      without these things that are CRAP. i am only playing the GAME because i
      love the GAME not a stupid statoo and a stupid medal ¬¬ seriously guys
      collectors edition never are THAT good use the money in other things
      that are very most valuable

    • Anonymous

      I have nothing against DLC but 2 months after the game is released? Give me a break, its probably already done. Why can’t this be included in the game? It stinks. The DLC will also probably be compulsory for multiplayer so once you have the game they have you over a barrel. Getting back to gears 2 “host shotgun” anyone?

    • Grahamlee1704

      yeah but its gears of war its well worth it

      So you can only get this off of the Xbox LIVE Marketplace? What if I wanted to pick it up when I get Gears of War 3? Are they available in stores, because I’m pretty sure they don’t sell 2400 point (Equivalent to $30) cards.

    • http://twitter.com/ThundercrushR David

      For me, it’s about what I can play:  The Game $59 and now the Expansion packs $30 The total price is $89 which to me is fair. If you want more goodies, then you have pay for those items. Just know what you want and can afford. I think Epic does a great job of breaking down the items so an individual can purchase exactly what they want.

      or you can get over yourself and buy the season pass lol.

    • Christo202

      the only reason it seem expensive i because you’re paying for (or, investing in) something all at once. it may seem like a lot of of money at first but add it all up and see what the better deal is. :)

    • Eljefry-18

      I think epic should include the pre order character skins in the season pass,
      since hardcore fans like me would love to have all concepts available in
      the game. Is not fair that players cant enjoy more than one of them, unless they have the money to spend.

    • Zak Ferrell

      Heck look at Call of Duty there giving one year of elite in the hardened edition for like 30 bucks more when its reguarly 50. Epic hook up the people that are spending money im getting epic edition and collectors edition strategy guide

    • Luke Chalfant

      Think of it as an investment. They’re planning 4 DLC’s over the next year after release. Let’s say each DLC costs $10. If you bought each one as they came out, over the course of a year you’d spend $40. But here’s what the season pass does: Take 33% off of each DLC, making each one roughly $7.50, and multiply that by 4, and you get $30. So you pay them $30 now, and you get some cool weapon skins as a little treat, then you get the next 4 DLC’s automatically as they come out. Considering that DLC’s for other big games are often $15 nowadays… This is a pretty rad deal. 

    • Kansler87

      Will the season pass include all of the “pre-order” character skins?

    • sx117

      2400ms pts. but if all four DLC are 1200 then that = 4800ms pts. 33% off that is 3200 + the season pass of 2400= 5600 …pay more ? 

      • sx117

        unless we get them  a week early or something i don’t know but i still might get for the extra skins because Gears is awesome.

    • Brandon420

      I paid off my epic edition today got home and found out that my xbox live expired so now I have to scrounge up some cash for xbox live and points cards so I can buy this too….lol…If anybody out there has an extra $400 they don’t need it would be nice to get the console.

      (Info intake failz) 4 DLC Maps,Horde modes,etc. Come FREE once u purchase the pass. No DISCOUNTS. its basically a Pre-order for the Map Packs. But instead you get them free for pre-ordering the DLC. Its what u want to think. But i honestly am going to buy the game/seasons pass and weapon skins. I know u want everything u can get but make some sacrifices no need to blow all your money at once… but eh. thats just me.

    • Wittom

      hey i have 2 questions.
      1. is the pass only available on the 20th and then never again?
      2. and also can you buy the pass if you don’t have the game with you? like will it be on the xbox dashboard?

    • Hitman0341

      So if it’s a season pass does that mean when my “season” pass expires I’ll have to buy a new one in order to keep using the DLC. or once I download the DLC will I be able to keep it even if I decide to never repurchase another season pass.

    • So

      not worth it

      its a good game, but its just a game. Like all other games you play them for awhile then put it where all the other old games you have, what I’m saying is buy the $60 game and stop making these epic fat pigs more money $150 epic edition then their trying to get people to pre order dlc for $ 30 more for 33% of the dlc. EPIC GO SUCK somthing

      Nice that you sell content which won’t be downloaded, which isn’t new and which is on the freakin’ disk. Make new content and sell it, everyone will be fine with it but that here is not fine. Unlock the stuff with a patch instead of letting people pay for it.

      Gripe gripe gripe this is a good deal and for what you get with the game already is astonishing. So many countless hours of gameplay on that disc as it is and now you guys are complaining about them offering us a discount on the dlc? You spoiled little brats need to understand how you don’t get something for nothing and the work they done on this shows and they deserve every penny you can afford to muster up. 

    • Somabob

      season pass MEANS FOR THE SEASON,HERE YOU CLAIM IT ADDS TO THE campaign,BUT ACCORDING TO INSIDE XBOX,THERE IS NO ADD-ON FOR THE CAMPAIGN(and this was the only reason i bought it,as i don’t find the multi-player versus all that much fun(not the best of players,but the barrel roll sawed-off move is crap)and then there’s the lag even on single player.Other then that you guyz actaully put together a decent game,beast mode NICE TWIST,AND THE NEW HOARDE BOSS SET-UP.
      AND I DO AGREE WITH THE EPIC EDITION,IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN INCLUDED.
      SAD PART IS THE SEASON PASS (AS THEY CALL IT)I CALL IT PRE-ORDERING 1ST SET OF ADD-ONS;SO IN FACT IT ISN’T A SEASON PASS(A SEASON HAS 4 MONTHS IN IT,FOR A GAME IT MEANS ALL DLC’S RELEASED DURING THE 1ST YEAR OF RELEASE).
      AND BY NO MEANS IS WEAPON SKINS OR NEW IN GAME PLAYERS TO USE.

      • fix this

        continued-so being NOTHING WAS STATED ON THE XBOX THAT NEW CONTENT FOR CAMPAIGN WAS ALSO INCLUDED WITH SEASON pass,but here you do say it’s so;if not alot of people will be pissed off,$30.00 (almost 50% of title cost)BEST HAVE A MIN. OF 33% CONTENT ADDED(ONCE AGAIN PLAYABLE IN-GAME PEOPLE AND WEAPON SKINS ARE NOT COUNTED.)YOU ALREADY MADE YOUR PROFITS 10 FOLD,NOW GIVE ALITTLE SOMETHING BACK TO THE PLAYERS WHO PAY YOUR WAGES,DON’T ACT LIKE COD TITLES,BESIDES I FEEL EPIC OWES ALL OF US WHO OWN GOW2 FOR THE LACK OF FIXING THAT TITLE,AND MESSING UP WEAPONS THAT WEREN’T BROKE.
        FIX THE SAWED-OFF LIKE YOU FIXED THE CHAIN SAW;SAWED-OFF WON’T FIRE UNTIL YOU ARE 2-3 SECONDS OUT OF YOUR BARREL-ROLL.

    • Supah_sage

      Anyone remember when DLC was meant to be EXTRA for a game?  By having premeditated DLC for games, game devs aren’t really making the DLC EXTRA.  They’re just limiting the retail version of the game, like it’s “freeware” for a computer.  Then if you want to unlock all the details of the game you have to fork over more $$.  Some games even have “DLC” pre-loaded on the disc, you just pay for the “key” to access it.  Mostly it’s a scam guys, as much as I love extra content…

    • Jd88

      What does this exactly include? Is the the new map pack, characters, etc.? Some people say if you buy this you will just get a discount on the download content, and some say you don’t need to pay for your DLC when buying this. What is it?

      • http://www.facebook.com/jameseddiebleasdale James Eddie Bleasdale

        when you buy the season pass it pre buys the dlc but it give you a 33% saving than buying the dlc individually.

      I purchased the season pass a few days after it came out. I just purchased the Horde Command pack through the Xbox live game marketplace and was charged 800 points or 10 dollars in this case. When I put in the game it asked me to download it for free. Why was I still charged if I had the season pass. I would like my money back for the command pack now.

      disgusted really,…epic are taking the piss out of us all.

      I eagerly opened the box only to find a peice of paper stating if i
      wanted to see my gears 3 manual i had to go online.!! £40 and no
      manual!? Hmmmm!

      Then when I go to play on gears 3 i get a message WARNING me I have NOT purchased the DLC available at the store…Yet if I ignore this message i can still play.
      Surely this is an advertisement? As i do not NEED the DLC in order to play,and i’m quite sure advertisements should not contain any WARNINGs.!?

      I really Cant believe how WE have to pay for DLC !!
      Especially after WE have already bought the game and pay regular XBOX subscription charges,now WE are expected to pay for things CLASSED as extras i.e maps or (as in the pheonix rising dlc)the option to RE-UP!
      The box promises dedicated servers..yet this is also a paid extra that does not come with the game!
      And on top of all this contained in the DLC bundle are Gamerscore points!..What ever happened to things like Gamerscore or skins being awarded for skill and not just for money!?

      It just Seems like whole games are being split and sold in expensive little sections to be honest..what a rip off!!

      I for one wont be buying any extra DLC..epic have had enough cash from me.

      PEOPLE PLEASE STOP BUYING DLC,
      DEMAND MORE FOR yOUR MONEY.
