 Forces of Nature DLC Hits Gears of War 3 Today

Today is a little bittersweet for fans of the Gears of War series.  The launch of the Forces of Nature downloadable content takes place for Gears of War 3, but it will also be the last map pack DLC that Epic does for the title.

Forces of Nature will include three brand new maps as well as two old classics from previous titles.  In addition, you’ll also receive four brand new multiplayer characters to battle with and a whopping 250 gamerscore to achieve.  If you’re a Season Pass member, you’ll receive the downloadable content for free.  If you’re not a Season Pass member, the downloadable content will cost you 800 Microsoft Points. You can download the Forces of Nature DLC here.

Below, we’ve listed the maps and their weather conditions as well as the characters you’ll receive.


  • Aftermath (Flooding city)
  • Artillery (Tornado)
  • Cover (Fog)
  • Jacinto (Rainstorm & Imulsion)
  • Raven Down (Snowstorm)
  • Savage Hunter
  • Commando Dom (new variants)
  • Mechanic Baird
  • Savage Grenadier Elite
As a fan of the Gears of War series, I’m incredibly happy to see Jacinto be added to Gears of War 3.  In addition to the maps and characters, Epic is also bringing back the beloved “Guardian” mode today.  All in all, it’s a great time to be a Gears of War fan.  Oh, did we mention you can get an Imulsion cleaver?
