    Gears of War 3The developer revealed the complete changelog for this third title update. We have the full list of changes below. Check it out.

    Improvements:

    • All unlockable and non-purchasable characters are unlocked for System Link play. Online play still limits players to characters that they have unlocked or have purchased through DLC.

    • The ghost camera can be raised and lowered using the Xbox controller d-pad.

    • “Retribution” ribbon is now compatible with dedicated servers.
    • Holding the “Y” button before being in range of a DBNO player and then walking into activation range will start the execution sequence. This is similar to holding “X” to queue up a weapon pickup sequence when walking into range of a dropped weapon.

    Fixes

    • Removed Hammerburst and Longshot exploits with using the iron-sights/scope on Mercy where a player could shoot from a concealed position near the Sanctuary bells. Damage will not register when players are using the scope or iron-sights from that concealed position.
    • Fixed the OneShot exploit on Drydock. Players will be pulled out of the OneShot mounted pose when in certain positions.

    • The transition from spectator player view to ghost camera view will no longer force the ghost camera view to point upwards.
    • The map cycle in QuickMatch is now randomly ordered.
    • DLC that is not owned by the current player will no longer stop the player from using DLC they do own.
    • Horde will no longer use the Versus weapon swaps. Horde players will have Hammer of Dawn and Mortar spawns on Overpass again.
    • Fixed the lens flare on a scoped Longshot not appearing for a player facing left.
    • Xbox system notifications have been moved out of the way of kill messages in competitive multiplayer. They now show up in the top center of the screen.
  • Gears of War 3 "Fenix Rising" DLC announced

    Epic Games has just announced a new DLC for Gears of War 3. It is titled as "Fenix Rising" map pack, and is schedule to launch on January 17 for 800 MSP. The DLC will be available for free of cost to Gears of War 3 Season Pass subscriber.

    Fenix Rising DLCGears of War 3 Fenix Rising DLC features new experience system that allow players to rank up through level 100 multiple times to unlock exclusive weapon skins and emblems.

    These new weapon skins are

    • Re-Up Plasma - Animated flowing plasma in gold.
    • Re-Up Omen - Shiny, red Omen.
    • Re-Up Electric - Animated, golden electric shocks.

    The DLC also features five new multiplayer maps that work across Multiplayer, Horde and Beast Mode. These new maps are Academy, Anvil, Depths, Escalation and The Slab.

    The character skins, for use in Versus Multiplayer and Horde Mode (if COG):

    COG:

    Recruit Clayton - Clayton was born a Gear, grew up a Gear, and on the very day he became eligible, he signed himself up to become the capable, confident, and devoted Gear he'd always known he could be.

    Thrashball Cole (Limited Edition)
    - The Cole Train prefers to take the most direct path to the Locust Horde in any situation. What he lacks in finesse, he makes up in raw energy.

    Locust:

    Savage Marauder - Locust Marauders were the first to form any sort of organisation outside of the Hollow - if their brutal infighting and bloodthirsty raiding parties could truly be called organised.

    Savage Kantus (Limited Edition)
    - The Savage Kantus were profoundly impacted by the loss of the Hollow. They have reverted to a primal, shamanistic state, and their battle cries have taken a dark, melancholy turn. Few sounds are as terrifying to human ears.
