Press Release: "HALO 3" and "GEARS OF WAR 2" HEADLINE BLOCKBUSTER LINE-UP OF XBOX LIVE GAME ADD-ONS
LONDON 23rd March 2009 - Spring is nearly here, and with it comes new life for some of this generation's biggest, most action-packed games, exclusively on Xbox LIVE. With more than 35 million in combined sales, the "Halo" and "Gears of War" franchises have set the bar for multiplayer games on the console. Now players of "Halo 3" and "Gears of War 2" will see the multiplayer experiences made even better by great new Game Add-ons.
On 31st March, the Snowblind map pack gives "Gears of War 2" players a chance to cool off with four new, winter-themed environments: Grindyard, Under Hill, Courtyard, and a frozen version of the "Gears of War" favourite, Fuel depot. Hot on the heels of Snowblind comes the highly-anticipated "Halo 3" Mythic Map Pack, releasing 9th April with three new maps: Assembly, Orbital and Sandbox. Both Game Add-ons will be available only on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft Points.
In addition to the exclusives mentioned above, Xbox 360 is the only console where you can extend your play with Game Add-ons from many of the year's top titles. From "Fallout 3" episode The Pitt (24th March) to the "Left 4 Dead" Survival Pack (21st April), publishers from across the industry recognize that Xbox LIVE is the premier online gaming destination, and a one-stop shop for Game Add-ons.
