This latest DLC explores the darker side of the Gears universe, with three maps, the new “Master at Arms” multiplayer mode and exclusive digital rewards.
New maps included are Terminal, Blood Drive, and Boneyard. According to Microsoft, they are set against the backdrop of the Locust invasion of Halvo Bay and include a mix of close quarters and vertical combat.
The Call to Arms DLC also introduces a new game mode called Master At Arms, a free-for-all game type that challenges players with getting kills with each of the 20 different weapons without using melee techniques or grenades. Every kill will automatically advance players to the next available weapon until they have used each and become the “master at arms.” Ten achievements for 250 new Gamerscore points and new armor and weapon skins are included.
This DLC will be available for free on April 23rd for VIP Season Pass holders and April 30th worldwide for $12.50 (1000 Microsoft Points). Check out the screenshots of the new maps below and click here to check out our review of Gears of War: Judgement.
