7 Days to GoW

2 min read

This time next week I’m pretty sure I won’t have slept since Sunday night and I won’t be alone given the massive number of midnight launches planned around the world. Over 20,000. 

Don’t forget there’s a season pass for 2400 Microsoft Points that you can buy which will save you 33% on the first 4 installments of DLC content that are due for release over the next year. You’ll be able to buy the special from the 20th. Also, be sure to play any match online at least once during the first week to get the Golden Lancer and Golden Hammerburst weapon skins during “Gears of War 3 Golden Wings Week”. Hit the source if you want to read about some of the larger than life statues and exclusive content some of the launches are giving away. Talk about hype. The game better live up to it #imjustsaying. Here’s a listing of some of the 20,000 launches:
