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

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.

    Yeah, they don't really know anything about this game and it's pretty tough to watch. It's especially brutal in the beginning when he's getting shot from one guy behind him and he never turns around to address the issue.

    If Barrick doesn't say, "For Mother Russia!" when he chainsaws someone I'm going to be furious. Or at least, "Timber!"

    Is that Micheal Barrick guy killbane from Saints Row: The Third? Sounds a lot like him

    listening to 4 people who know next to nothing about a series is always fun

    Do any other Gears of War fans have trouble watching this? It brings sorrow to my nerdy life that they know so little about Gears.

    Fixed. (I hope.)

    Ummm, is it just me, or does the 'video' freeze on the pause menu like 30 seconds in? Sound keeps going though.
