 “Gears of War 3” Kicks off the New Year in Explosive Fashion with “Fenix Rising”
Map Pack Featuring New Experience System AvailableJan. 17
Action-packed game add-on for the highest-rated shooter of 2011[1] introduces five new maps,
four character skins, and a system that lets players “Re-up” through level 100 to unlock
exclusive weapon skins


On Jan. 17, the battle for Sera rages on as Microsoft
and Epic mark the New Year with the release of “Fenix Rising,” the third major
game add-on for the most critically-acclaimed shooter of 2011, “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. Each “Re-up” level after
Bronze also awards the player an exclusive, custom weapon skin that cannot be
obtained by any other means:


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


Available on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft
Points or included as part of the “Gears of War 3” Season Pass, “Fenix Rising”
expands the multiplayer battlefield with an arsenal of stunning maps that deliver
endless hours of frenetic online action across Versus Multiplayer, Horde and
Beast Mode:


  • Academy –The
    lineage of the Fenix family can be traced back along a distinguished line of
    military officers.  Officer training at
    the Oracle Academy was simply the expected path for Marcus, and he had visited
    the grounds many times in expectation that he would walk the same path as his
    ancestors.  But it was not to be, and
    Marcus broke with tradition to be with his best friends Dom and Carlos.  Like any number of fine Seran traditions, the
    Academy is now lost to the invasion of the Locust Horde.

  • Anvil – The
    fortress of Anvegad was called Anvil Gate because its impenetrable walls were
    forged in the fires of war.  Huge cannons
    sat atop battlements that guarded sprawling walls running the line of the UIR
    borders.  Marcus went there to find
    Hoffman, and they both thought that Anvil Gate would offer protection from the
    incoming forces of Locust and Lambent. 
    They were wrong, and little remains other than the ruined shell of a
    once mighty fortress.

  • Depths – The
    excessive opulence of Azura defied all normal reasoning.  But Adam Fenix could see the cracks in the
    veneer of splendor from the moment he arrived at this underwater processing
    center.  And all that beauty mattered not
    at all once he was held captive by the Locust. 
    Out of options, he had to find a way to contact Marcus, and finally
    reveal the truths he’d been keeping to himself for all these many years.

  • Escalation – Haldane
    Hall has been the home of the Fenix family for countless generations.  But the only history that matters to Marcus’s
    are his memories of warm summer evenings spent with his mother, Elain, relaxing
    in the estate’s gardens.  Sadly, all the
    estate’s history and beauty was lost when the Locust destroyed it in an attempt
    to kidnap his father.

  • The Slab – Convicted
    for insubordination and treason, Marcus was incarcerated in Jacinto Maximum
    Security Prison.  Known as “The Slab”,
    this prison is not a correctional
    facility - it’s a place where Sera’s worst offenders are locked up and
    forgotten.  The inmates are brutal,
    parole is not an option, and the average life expectancy is about two
    years.  But that was before the Locust
    showed up, and what couldn’t get worse, suddenly did.  Now your life expectancy there is around 2 minutes.


Additionally, players who purchase “Fenix Rising” will gain access to
the following character skins for use in Versus Multiplayer and Horde Mode (if


  • 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
      ) – 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 organization outside of the Hollow
        – if their brutal infighting and bloodthirsty raiding parties could truly be
        called organized.
      • 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.

Rising” and all the previously released add-on content for “Gears of War 3,”
