Does anyone know if the Season Pass works just like any other sort of DLC in terms of licence? I'm thinking of "giving" it to my friend since we tend to do it every time we buy DLC or an XBLA game.


I asked that before and someone said yes but I don't know if anyone has tried it yet. I would like to share it with my brother. Gamesharing is the only thing my PS3 does that I wish the 360 would do... Sigh.

Confirmed. It can be shared accross 2 X360's. Might even work with more...the first time you load the game, it tells you the "season pass content is available, would you like to download now?".

I got the prompt each time on XBOX A and XBOX B. Keep in mind I purchased the season pass on XBOX A. Verified that the content is available on XBOX B.

I already miss Boomsnipes. Playing regular TDM with SOS guns is disappointing. What did they do to gears! :(

Whats funny is they made the SOS for people who suck at using the gnasher, and i dont think it really solves a problem because those same people suck with the SOS too. I seen a player today miss two easy shots, and i mean they werent even close to aiming at the guy, it was so embarrassing. So in the end they just gave good players a more powerful shotgun.

Well at least with this DLC i can use Bernie, was getting tired of using Sam for the female medal. I cant wait to get that over with so i can use Big Rig Dizzy.

It's a testing ground for the possibility of a Classic Playlist being permanently added to the general line up. I haven't played it yet, but from what I've read they are so close and yet oh so far. I wish Rod, Cliff, Quinn and whoever else is a part of the powers that be would let go of their vision of what the game SHOULD play like already. Because it's obvious they themselves can't figure out how to appease themselves and the hardcore simultaneously. It's a shame Epic can't seem to come to terms with what the public really wants. I'll tell you right now making the remaining rifles and SOS pick ups is a mistake that will bite them in the ass sooner or later, but at least they are trying to listen. I'll give them that much credit. I'll simply have to wait a little longer before I feel comfortable buying DLC and feeling enthusiastic about GoW 3 again. Hopefully what's left of the hardcore pro GoW1/2 crowd hints toward my personal game play concerns and voices them in the future.

Until then I'll pop it in when the free Clocktower/Bullet Marsh DLC shows up for a couple hours then move onto MW3 *shudder* and Skyrim.

 

Stop trying to Scooby-Doo this. We're not going to solve this mystery for you.

Has this been posted already? It's hilarious.

EDIT: Guess it has, but without the source.

I'm still in awe of how badly they fucked up the DLC for this game. First the DLC is delayed, then they announce that the maps from the DLC are free a day later.

I love how that article ignores the fact those who didn't buy it are steady chuckling at the Versus playing crowd of early Horde DLC adopters for buying three free maps for no good reason.

Nice job Epic.

Then again... you also gave me the Blood Drive and Clocktower remakes I wanted WITHOUT shoving River down my throat so more slack is happily being cut on my behalf. Well done.

I never liked Clocktower or Swamp...disappointing remakes but heh.

Guess the achievement of beating a boss wave of Horde with Onyx guards can only be achieved by playing with 4 others who have the DLC.

I'll be online in half an hour, it would be awesome if we could get a group of 5 together and get everybody the DLC achievements.

It's funny to me that commenters on various websites are raging at the "revelation" that the Horde Command download is just an unlock key for on-disc content, when there have been Youtube videos for weeks of people with modded consoles playing on the maps and using the character skins.

^I'm right there with you man.

I like the new weapon skins, and Big Rig Dizzy will probably be my new character.

Still $10 for skins and to get the maps a few weeks early? Fuck YOU, Epic. I wish I hadn't bought the season pass now. Fuckers.

So the maps (the biggest part of the DLC) will be free on Thanksgiving?

HAHHAHAHAHA wow.

Glad I didn't get the season pass.

Can someone explain this swamp map being in gears 1? Unless I missed something there was no swamp map in gears 1. There was bullet marsh which was hated by anyone who ever played gears, but no other swamp based maps.

20000 kills in gears 1 so I don't think I missed playing a map in my time with the game.

Swamp is a remake of bullet marsh (from what I'm reading).

Yeah, seems like it. Not sure why they chose that map out of all the maps, let alone the DLC ones. I much would have rather preferred Process and, of course, Raven Down.

Glad I ended up not buying the DLC today. I could care less about Horde so the multiplayer maps being free just means I can hold off on the pass even longer. Now I have 2400 points to burn. What to buy, what to buy.

Clocktower? Sweet. Bullet Marsh? Eck.

Even with the news of free maps, I'm still tempted to buy the season pass. Does that make me stupid?

As a Season Pass buyer I'm a little disappointed by the news of the free maps. Overall I think the SP will still be a good deal since I do enjoy Horde, but I would have waited to buy it until the Campaign DLC came out.

Just played a match in the Alpha playlist and its amazing. I really like the simpler loadouts. I do kind of wish it was still 5v5, but 4v4 isn't bad. There were already people complaining about the lack of retro/sawed-off starts, which is hilarious.
