Ahead of the launch of Gears of War 3 later this month, Microsoft is bringing to retail a number of special accessories for the Xbox 360 console. Already revealed are the limited edition controllers, strategy guides and a brand new console design, but the latest item to be added to the list is a special Gears of War 3 Xbox LIVE Subscription Pack.
Set to be launched at retail in time for the arrival of Gears of War 3, the all-new Gears of War 3 Xbox LIVE Subscription Pack features the familiar twelve month subscription with a recommended retail price of £39.99 GBP that we’ve all become used to. However, it also offers an additional two months of Xbox LIVE Gold membership, much like previous packages for Halo 3, Halo: Reach, Forza Motorsport 3 and others have done.
One additional bonus however, is entirely unique to the Gears of War 3 Xbox LIVE Subscription Pack. Previous Xbox LIVE Subscription Packs have offered Xbox LIVE Avatar Items, dashboard themes and similar items, but for the first time the Gears of War 3 Xbox LIVE Subscription Pack offers an in-game item as a special bonus. The Gears of War 3 Xbox LIVE Subscription Pack will include a code to receive a free in-game weapon.
It’s not yet been revealed which gameplay modes this exclusive weapon will be available in, but it’s most likely set to be reserved for the multiplayer gameplay modes. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Gears of War 3, and other forthcoming Xbox LIVE Subscription Packs.
