Halo 3 and Gears of War 2
Headline Blockbuster Line-Up of Xbox LIVE Game Add-Ons
Spring is nearly here, and with it
comes new life for some of this generation’s biggest, most action-packed games,
exclusively on Xbox LIVE. With more than 35 million in combined sales, the
“Halo” and “Gears of War” franchises have set the bar for multiplayer games on
the console. Now players of “Halo 3” and “Gears of War 2” will see the
multiplayer experiences made even better by great new Game Add-ons.
On 31st March, the Snowblind map
pack gives “Gears of War 2” players a chance to cool off with four new,
winter-themed environments: Grindyard, Under Hill, Courtyard, and a frozen
version of the “Gears of War” favourite, Fuel depot. Hot on the heels of
Snowblind comes the highly-anticipated “Halo 3” Mythic Map Pack, releasing 9th
April with three new maps: Assembly, Orbital and Sandbox. Both Game Add-ons will
be available only on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft Points.
In addition to the exclusives
mentioned above, Xbox 360 is the only console where you can extend your play
with Game Add-ons from many of the year’s top titles. From “Fallout 3” episode
The Pitt (24th March) to the “Left 4 Dead” Survival Pack (21st April),
publishers from across the industry recognize that Xbox LIVE is the premier
online gaming destination, and a one-stop shop for Game Add-ons.
