Gears of War 3 players who finish Horde mode on Insane difficulty in either single-player or multiplayer, and who watch the Mission: Impossible trailer on XBL before December 25, will get a “themed weapon skin pack”. The pack consists of skins for the Lancer, Hammerburst, Retro Lancer, Gnasher Shotgun, and Sawed-off Shotgun. If you are unable to finish Horde on Insane, though, you’ll still be put in a contest to win separate prizes.

Epic has posted a Gears of War 3 video, showing the first bit of footage from Bullet Marsh, one of the new multiplayer maps included with the free Versus Booster Map Pack. According to the developers, Bullet Marsh is a” reimagining of Gears 1’s foreboding, swampy stomping grounds” which is home to a bunch of nasty Kryll. The only come out when it’s dark, so if the lights get extinguished, start running your ass off. If you are unfamiliar with it, just think of the movie Pitch Black and you will get the idea.
The Versus Booster Map Pack will be released on November 24. Watch the video below.

“We’re not saying that everything on the disc is the product. The disc is another delivery mechanism. We had begun DLC packs early enough, and with the extension to our schedule.

“I think the thing that makes it muddy for people is when it’s on the disc. We could have left it off and said, ‘Hey, here’s another disc.’”
– Gears of War 3 executive producer Rod Fregusson responding to Kotaku‘s questions about the game’s on-disc, paid DLC.
