Gears of War 3 RAAM's Shadow DLC launches with technical hitch

Season Pass owners being asked to pay for new content again

The RAAM's Shadow DLC for Gears of War 3 is now available to download from Xbox Live, although Season Pass holders are experiencing issues accessing it freely.


When prompted by the game to download the DLC, Season Pass owners are being taken to a download box requesting that they pay the regular 1,200 MS Point (£10.28) asking price (thanks, Gamepur).

A note at the right hand side of the screen informs users with a Season Pass not to download the DLC here as it will charge them again, an issue developer Epic says it's investigating.

Director of production Rod Fergusson said on Twitter: "We're investigating why Season Pass holders are pointing at the wrong RAAM's Shadow offer. Please be patient."

Set before the original Gears of War, the prequel DLC sees you fight as part of a new squad of Gears, but more interestingly you'll also step into the boots of the fearsome Locust leader you killed at the end of that game, General RAAM.

A recent video preview showed off the Locust weapons and execution moves you'll get to perform for the first time in the series.
