If you picked up your copy of Gears of War 2
used, you now have a chance to get your hands on the elusive gold-plated Lancer, which was -- until today -- only available via a voucher code included with new copies of the game. It's available now on the Xbox Live Marketplace as a free download.
Don't look so surprised. Earlier in the month, Microsoft released the Flashback Map Pack
-- another item initially made available only to new buyers of the game -- on the Marketplace
. At least this time, the content is free. No word if it will remain that way.
Update: This content seems to only
be available on the Xbox.com Marketplace, not on the Xbox 360 Marketplace.Download the In-game Gold Lancer for Gears 2
