Gears of War 3 is taking the L.A. Noire route, offering players the option to purchase a “Season Pass” instead of buying all the DLC separately. The season pass – which comes in at $30, or 2400 Microsoft Points – will save consumers 33% on the total cost of the content.
There will be four installments included in the pass, which will be available when the game launches on September 20. It will also include a special bonus – the “exclusive” Liquid Metal Weapon Set. The first DLC pack will launch in November.
I, for one, am actually into this idea. DLC is so ridiculously expensive initially and ends up dropping to nothing after I stop playing the game. Consider me incentivized.
