Gears of War 3 gets free DLC courtesy of new Mission: Impossible


Gears of War 3 (360) Mission Impossible Freebie Announcement - HeaderTo help promote Paramount Pictures’ upcoming Brad Bird-directed spy thriller Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Gears of War 3 players will be able to snag a download of the Versus Booster Map Pack for free on Thanksgiving.  The DLC includes two new maps (Bullet Marsh and Clocktower) as well as three more from the Horde Command Pack (Azura, Rustlung, and Blood Drive). But there’s more! A free weapon skin pack is also on offer to players from around the globe … but there’s a catch.

To access the Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol Weapon Skin Pack, players will have to watch the Mission: Impossible trailer and complete the Gears of War 3 campaign on insane difficulty before December 25. It doesn’t have to be completed alone, though, as playing through in multiplayer also counts. The five-weapon pack includes the “Ghost Protocol” Lancer, Hammerburst, Retro Lancer, Gnasher Shotgun, and Sawed-off Shotgun. Gamers can register to enter a handful of prizes, as well as a chance to get the pack if they meet the deadline, on the Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol section on Live. For an extra shot at a prize package, a download of the free Mission: Impossible Gamer Pic & Theme pack serves as an additional entry.
