Gears of War 3 "Fenix Rising" Map Pack
Developer: Epic Games
Publisher: Microsoft
Release date: January 18, 2012
Price: $10

"Fenix Rising," the latest DLC pack for Gears of War 3, brings five new maps to the table, in addition to some other odds and ends. For one thing, downloading the add-on enables Epic's version of Call of Duty's Prestige Mode, whereby you can reset your progress and gain shiny new emblems and weapon skins.

The DLC also includes seven new achievements (totalling 250 gamer points) and four new character skins: on the COG side, there's Recruit Clayton Carmine and Thrashball Cole (previously only unlockable in the beta). For the Locust, you get the Savage Marauder and Savage Kantus (previously only for Amazon pre-order customers).

We know you're really getting it for the maps, though. So we spent the last day or so playing around on them, and now we've broken them down on the next page. At 800 Space Bucks (or $10), we figured you'd like to know exactly what you're getting.

Keep in mind, weapon spawns are given to flux, and we may have missed a couple—if that's the case, be sure to let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
