Epic Games is following in the footsteps of Gears of War 3
, offering up a season pass for proposed multiplayer maps and other content in Gears of War: Judgment
The VIP Season Pass, available for 1600 Microsoft Points ($20) when Gears of War: Judgment
launches, will include six multiplayer maps, two game modes and "nine exclusive unlocks," including a permanent double XP modifier, five weapon skins and four armor skins. VIPs also get early access to add-on multiplayer maps.
The Gears of War 3 Season Pass
totaled $30 and covered four different DLC installments, running the gamut from multiplayer maps to singleplayer DLC campaigns. While the VIP pass for Gears of War: Judgment
is cheaper, the reduced price seems to come at the cost of singleplayer DLC.
