and Epic Games
have announced the launch of Fenix Rising
, the third major game add-on for the Gears of War 3
. Featuring five spectacular new multiplayer maps inspired by significant locales in the Gears of War 3 campaign, Fenix Rising also introduces four new character skins and a new system that allows players to rank up through level 100 multiple 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 rank icon color each time: Bronze (default level 100), Red, Green and Gold. Several new screenshots
found their way in our gallery.
