See How the Other Side Kills in New 'Gears of War 3' DLC

Now that the smoke has finally cleared over the release of Epic's Gears of War 3, we can finally settle in on what's next: the inevitable wave of DLC that accompanies any modern video game release.  Gears 3 will, of course, have several pieces of DLC released over the course of the coming months.  Epic, however, has decided to try something a little different with the upcoming "RAAM's Shadow."  More details after the break.

According to Joystiq, "RAAM's Shadow" will take place during Emergence Day, when the Locust first burst forth onto Sera.  Players will step into the armored boots of the Zeta Squad as they attempt to escape Illima City, as well as the opportunity to take on the role of RAAM himself and "storm the human stronghold from the perspective of one of the series' most legendary bosses."

In addition to the DLC's three-hour campaign, you'll also get six more characters for multiplayer, 250 Gamerscore's worth of additional achievements, and a "chocolate" weapon set.  Delicious!

"RAAM's Shadow" will be released December 13th on Xbox Live.
