Video playthrough: Gears of War 3 RAAMs Shadow campaign DLC (see the first two chapters)

We show you over 45 minutes of the campaign expansion – playing as General RAAM, old heroes back from the dead and a new perspective on the Hammer of Dawn

You finally know how the Gears of War trilogy ends, and now, thanks to the soon-to-be-released campaign DLC RAAM’s Shadow, you’re also about to discover how it truly begins. This isn’t another multiplayer map pack. This is an entirely new story, telling an entirely new chapter of Sera’s history - what happened before Marcus Fenix was released from prison, before Delta Squad was ordered to track down the resonator and before you ever hit the start button on Gears of War 1.

For a first look at the prequel’s gameplay - what characters are back from the dead, how Sera looked before everything went to hell, and why playing as General RAAM will make you feel like a Locust god - check out our video playthroughs. The entire first chapter is above and the entire second chapter is below.

RAAM’s Shadow arrives December 13 for $15 or 1200 Microsoft points (unless you already purchases the Season Pass, in which case it’s free). Watch for our review next week.
