Gears 3 DLC to be substantial(ly different)

Gears of War 3 will continue adding to the package, substantially, through downloadable content, Epic Games has revealed.

The developer plans to release new maps, cooperative add-ons, and even campaign content, though not with any of the usual suspects present.

“We have some DLC that’s coming up. We’ve confirmed we’ll be doing campaign DLC. One thing I can tell you is that you’re not going to see Marcus or Dom or Cole in it,” Epic’s design man Cliff Bleszinski’s told The Telegraph (via).

“I believe that DLC should be unique and cool, like Lost and the Damned, Gay Tony, Mad Moxie’s Underdome Riot. All those kind of things. DLC’s the place where you play and have fun. So that’s one thing that’s an indication of where things may be going in the future.”

There’s the campaign to get through first though; the game launches today worldwide.
