Fenix Rising Map Pack Featuring New Experience System Launches Today

Today, Microsoft and Epic release “Fenix Rising,” the third major game add-on for the most critically-acclaimed shooter of 2011, “Gears of War 3.” Featuring five spectacular new multiplayer maps inspired by the life and experiences of Marcus Fenix, “Fenix Rising” also introduces four character skins and a new experience system that allows 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 valor and dedication as elite “Gears of War” fans. Their experience and rank will be reset, but all other progression (including TrueSkill rating) will remain intact. Players can “Re-up” up to three times, earning a new wings color each time: Red, Green, and Gold. The rank number will also be colored 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.

Available on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft Points or included as part of the “Gears of War 3” Season Pass, “Fenix Rising” expands the multiplayer battlefield with five stunning new maps – Academy, Anvil, Depths,  Escalation, and the Slab – delivering endless hours of frenetic online action across Versus Multiplayer, Horde and Beast Mode. Additionally, players who purchase “Fenix Rising” will gain access to four new character skins (Recruit Clayton, Thrashball Cole – Limited Edition, Savage Marauder and Savage Kantus – Limited Edition) for use in Versus Multiplayer and Horde Mode.

Players can obtain “Fenix Rising” and all the previously released add-on content for “Gears of War 3,” including “RAAM’s Shadow” and the “Horde Command Pack,” and secure access to one more upcoming game add-on by purchasing the “Gears of War 3” Season Pass for 2400 Microsoft Points, which entitles them to the first four game add-ons for a total discount of 33 percent.

      i just got the new dlc and when i try to launch the new playlist it wont work i was just wondering if yall were gonna fix this problem

      • Big4noreason77

        It worked great for me this morning. Maybe you should try to re-download the DLC and relaunch after reboot.

        You’re probably one of those losers who sit in his dung filled pants and play Viva Pinata still. If you think you’re to good for Gears Of War then why are you posting here. Makes me thing you’ve got nothing better to do than to troll in which case you’ve clearly got no life.

      This dlc would have been great, if my rank hadn’t been reset a few weeks back.. FIX THIS PLZ.

      • Cameronq419

        i hear u mine got reset a few weeks back i was level 97 and all my medals gone :(

        • Roydarnellroy

          same thing happen to me but i was a  lvl 100

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_7CC7JAPDZPMNKPHDDHIRCU4UEQ DavidP

            IF you have a console crash mid game ALWAYS check your game data in storage/gears 3 and see if they corrupt..  that way  if it is corrupt delete and once you start the game it will update your files to the last known online save  so you should be ok…

            i’ve rage quit/ left mid game/ left just after start of game and even during a loading screen quit to dash and i still have my rank intact…also clearing your cache files off the hdd may help every few months…

            • Jrxzarco

              dud if i was to see that like 30min. ago

            • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_7CC7JAPDZPMNKPHDDHIRCU4UEQ DavidP

              well previous saves i’d got from a 2nd mem card showed the game save to have no gamer pic just a exclamation point and it says corrupt file where it would normally say what it was….the simple solution is to only leave AFTER stat updates not during them….which is after a match has started in the middle or at the end AFTER you have updated your stats….

              and don’t cheat/boost/ hack….

            • Tisgeo

              How do you know its corrupt????
              i got reset, and trust im pretty pissed.
              i dont cheat or anything. all my xp and level are lagit. and i was lvl reup 30.
              and its all gone.

        • Jrxzarco

          ya me too level 74 so close to level 75

        • maschingonktu

          i just lose my collectibles thank’s god now im level 12 1st re-up

          • Skarz15

            Same here. Lost all the collectibles and the achievements, but everything else stayed the same. Glad and mad about it, but mainly glad that my level wasn’t reset. That would’ve been the worst!

      • Adam Heavyside

        Yep me too mate. Almost wanted to stop playing it. I had golden hunter and miner too.

      • OmegaDragonGod

        You wouldn’t get reset if you weren’t trying to glitch profiles. The only way your stats get cleared is when you either drop out in the middle of a game without saving (Sometimes) or if you’re trying to glitch by signing in a second profile to copy achievements. If you stop glitching or being babies and quitting out early you wont have this issue. I’ve never been reset but then again I don’t cheat either. Stop wasting everybody’s time because once it’s gone, it’s gone for good.

        • http://twitter.com/DrKhaosPhD John Beck

          Wrong! I lost all progress because my console froze at the end of a Horde wave and when I signed back into Gears, the corrupted gamesave was overwritten. The overwrite IS the failsafe to discourage people from modding their gamesaves, but if there’s a console related error, you suffer the same reset.

          Don’t simply say “Everyone who suffers reset is a cheater” because I know first hand that isn’t true.

          • Steve S

            Really…cause my console has froze numerous times and my game saves were corrupted but my rank was NOT affected, stop cheating and you’ll have nothing to worry about.

            • Alex

              I have to agree with John Beck. Although it happened to me in Gears 2. After I downloaded a demo for another game I had some of my games saves being corrupted and I had to start back from lv1 (I was lv 75…). Eh…

        • xJAK3ST3Rx

          Look it up on google. Level 99 then reset to 1. If you turn off your xbox while you are level 99 you get reset to level 1.

          Gears of War, Glitchy since forever.

    • Radeeoactive33

      When I try to get into the playlists, it says that I need to fix my Party Type into one that is Xbox Live-enabled, even though it already is enabled. Then it won’t let me search for matches. Anybody else experiencing this?

      • Mattyv4242

        had the same issue seems common. Every DLC has had new issues on day one. 

      • S Thomas

        I’m geting the same problem, and I haven’t seen anything here to fix it, have you heard anything yet?

        • LeeMboro

          if it is wats happening to me press the back button change party type to local and then back again to public or w.e and it worked for me

          • S Thomas

            That solved the problem, at least for right now, no telling if it will pop back up again, but thanks.

            • http://twitter.com/FarCry3r Shukri Zahari

              What’s more annoying is, after I get a successful connection to a public match, I got kicked to the main menu and it says “Connection to the host lost.”

              Weird thing is, all my friends that is in my party is in the game except me.

              Oh and I also got couples of Xbox Live disconnection last night when my router is doing just fine.

            • Jasnbarrt4

              check your NAT type…if it is open you should be good otherwise if it moderate like mine got switched too I was getting the same error. I had to reste  my router and that fixed the issues

      • Guessed

        just exit to the gears start up screen and youre good

      gears of war sucks i used to be a major gears fan till i realized it kinda sucks i mean whats the point of playing countless hours for an onyx  medal when it brings no reward you just get burned out on the game and everything that you get exclusive will just be added later come on

      You guys have to too slow releasing content, that is not enough in the first place, and allowed COD to gain to much momentum.

      • Arachnathorax

        When the message comes up, back out to the very first start screen…it’ll work fine after that :) not sure why it happens, mainly just on Stay Frosty playlist i think, i know its an annoyance but atleast this way you can still play :)

        • S Thomas

          Found out the other solution is to click your party onto Local and then back to your original party setting. That worked for me, at least for right now.

    • Orijinaru

      This dlc is no good then make you buy it to play the game,and i dont like to buy thing right away to play a game i owe.MW3 it is.

        your rite mate,EPIC F–K–G SUCKS for doing this ,, the main selling point of GEARS 3 was the dedicated servers NOT THE HOST SERVERS,  so hurry and sort this shit EPIC ARSEHOLES because you have upset thousands of GEARS FANS  for doing this shit

      • Lmtx45

         I tell you, if they don’t bring back the dedicated servers for non-dlc owners, I’m going to sell the game. It’s no use to play gow3 with laggy host-based matches when the best thing of this game was the clean online gameplay… It’s like playing gears 1 and 2.

    • Juan Manuel

      What a great release, the Marauder is so epic.
      You should add a play list named (Lone COG) or someting like that, it would be great to play alone against all.

    • MKH

      “…cannot be obtained by any other means.” PSH, yeah, right. Let’s not forget EPIC made those weapon skins, so they’ll probably be on the marketplace in 6 months for 320 MS points each.

    • Lopezefrain89

      I have not yet had the chance to hop on a few matches yet. But i did notice something even after this release my collection isn’t complete I noticed that the beta cole train still shows up. Is there anyway you can get rid of that? I thought this dlc was going to complete my collection but i guess not.

    • http://twitter.com/HotJuicyPie Brandon Bristol

      And people are already Re-Up #3 because you botched the launch with:

      A) Releasing it early while the Horde Dance-A-Tron was still live and able to be glitched.

      &

      B) You didn’t re-roll servers before launch and people were able to keep the event going even after the DLC dropped and event ended by hosting a game prior to it and keeping it live.

      Kudos on a job well done.

      DLC 3 is amazing, love the Frosty playlist (Great game mode) Thanks to all the devs :)

    • http://twitter.com/Daftmouse Mikel Kjell

      Epic you have created a very literal ghetto in terms of separating the player base by giving dedicated servers(that have been free up to this point and were never annouced before today that they were eventually going away) to people who are pay for fenix rising and forcing the people dont who buy into a ghetto of terrible lag, dropped games, and countless glitches due to how unstable non-dedicated server hosting.

       I have been played a couple times a week since launch and I have NEVER experienced any real noticable lag or hosting errors, now today alone I had 3 games have to restart due to hosts leaving (which by the way is great how it restarts a round that one team about to win and by great I mean is dumb as all hell)and even one match up where a I was placed on a team with 3 other people (1 bot) and the enemy team got 6 people (5 people and 1 bot). Are you trying to put non-dlc buying customers through gameplay hell in order to get their $10?

      I thought the dedicated server had improved gameplay for gears GREATLY over gears 2, which ran rampant with hosts glitching/using the hosting to their advantage. It is insanely backwards of you to bring turn that advancement back and put it on people who equally bought the game,that are still playing the game. This is NOT how you treat a community of players. 

      I couldn’t give two shits about fortnite now, if this is how you treat your community then I want nothing to do with another multiplayer based game from you guys.

    • The UnholyRelic

      if you read trough all comments is about that everyone that was playing the game the most in the last 4 months and got all their stats in both stats and awards, and now since the title update, we lost all our remainings as proof that we have been in that level(like we yust got this game). Like all others, i was lvl 94 got all unlocks both in mutators and fortifications (didn’t care about medals and k/d that much), but then got reseted and lost everything. good thing the campaign still is recorded that i beated it on insane, but now i have to beat both horde and beast on insane again(something you never want to do again after you first beaten it) if there is any way to fix this, please do since this rank reset have really pissed off the community bad. And i know im not the only one thinking this.

    • Iissiigh05t

      This game was great when it came out… now it’s garbage. I’ve played gears since GoW1 and bought the epic edition plus the sp. I feel like epic just cares about its money, which is ok for you need to make profit, but they’re really screwing over the gow community on how they’re going about things. At least put the servers back.

      • jdfunk

        I agree, I feel like I have to buy the DLC otherwise I only can play on player servers with people who have clans, or already to there 2nd time of being level 100 it’s a bunch of bullshit!

      Escalation sucks big balls, looks like straight shit, stop changing the original map weapon lay out. Why not just upgrade the maps and make them look the same from one?

      How long did that game stay at $60? Now look at your shit Cliffy, your terrible!

       The game feels different, shoots faster, still the gnasher is a sniper. By the way Cliffy, why not ask your ORIGINAL fans what they like? You make games to scrub friendly, people ONLY get better by a challenge, not stupid layouts.

      GG BK, 5-0, no RE

    • jdfunk

      I think not letting people who have not upgraded play on dedicated servers is a bunch of crap, this really makes me upset about that game, you guys make tons of money of the sell of the game, then this stupid season pass people buy, now I’m forced to buy the pack to play on a dedicated server?!?!

      Not sure if epic reads this or even the developers but… The add on / update before  fenix rising the 5 mb one that turned the gold lvl 100 to bronze the the fenix rising update was much more than an update There were tweaks that were not listed this is speculation however I pay very close attention to detail so here is the simple things I noticed Retro charge takes much longer to build up about 1.5 seconds or so. Grenades have a bigger blast radius, active reloaded boomshots blast radiuses are ridiculous also ink grenades affected area is about double the size but a longer window to escape. revved lancers has an insanely huge window I ran past a revved lancer and was nearly a two player distance and was chainsawed. Most of all the sawn off has about a 1 foot extension on range. Noticed this many time both giving and receiving. People still use 4 + stage modded controllers it is not possible to pull the trigger that fast will sweeping and do it accurately with that small and sensitive of a sight just look at them use the cog pistol clip in less than 1second. Movement also seems to have been slowed down a bit noticed that I am getting to certain areas in a longer period of time could just be me. I’d rather mechanic Baird than another cole train. On top of all these “hidden tweaks” trying to play an online TDM or other mode is hit and miss it takes about 4 tries after backing out to title and then players glitching around and one time I waited for someone to jump over to get the kick and one shot and went to move out the way I moved but he went up like 6 feet in the air and ended up behind me and got OSOK’d. I have shot people point blank in the head aimed down with the gnasher and nothing happens just to be exploded by one of their shots. The turned a really good smooth 3ps into a mess connection errors unnecessary tweaks and not addressing modded controllers turned a perfect ten IMO into a five or six.

        I agree mate,  i thought it was my connection but this is what i have noticed aswell, EPIC YOU HAVE TOTALLY SCREWED THIS AWSOME GAME UP,  this was the best damn shooter that is on any console and now you have turned it into a glitchy ,lagging , lame arse piece of shit,,, sort this out and stop changing the weapon powers and game ,  EVER HEARD THE OF OLD SAYING ,,,DONT FUCK WITH PERFECTION,,, sadly epic you are doing it to often,,,

      is anyone else experiencing problems with the matchmaking and multiplayer? are the dedicated servers down or what? it feels like a total different game.

    • Josh

      Ok correct me if im wrong but i have all DLC and stuff but we are suppose to have dedicated servers. Right? Well if thats true why does it say “cant connect to host” it should say “cant connect to server” and i still notice a lot of people that seem to have host shotgun and stuff.

    • douron

      Hey Epic, you seriously need to make a Fenix Rising playlist. Been playing for two days, and haven’t played a single match on any map.

      yep, what they forget to mention is that they no longer offer dedicated servers to the people who payed for (and were informed that they’d be getting) dedicated servers
