Epic’s announced the fourth and final DLC for Gears of War 3, the Forces of Nature map pack.

The pack will feature five maps – three new original maps in Artillery, Aftermath and Cove, with two classics featuring, such as Gears 1’s Raven Down and Jacinto from Gears 2 – as well as three new character skins: Commando Dom, Mechanic Baird, Savage Grenadier Elite and Savage Hunter.

Guardian Mode will also return from Gears of War 2 as part of the DLC, along with seven new weapon skins, one of which is linked to MLG and the other to an cheevo easter egg.

Forces of Nature’s will get ten additional achievements that tally up 250 Gamerpoints.

The content will be the last as part of Gears 3’s Season Pass, but Epic isn’t quite ruling out more content for the future.

“It’s kind of a ‘never say never’ perspective,” Epic director Rod Fergusson has told Digital Spy.

“We’ve completed the obligation for those with the season pass, so it’s really now all about community demand and those sorts of things and what people want. But I mean, it takes a lot of effort to create DLC, and in terms of internal resources and what we’re focused on, that kind of stuff.

“It’s really driven by player demand. If players are dying for it and they want it, then it’s something that we can definitely look at.”

Forces of Nature launches on March 27 for 800 MS points.
