Free Gears 3 map pack on Thanksgiving

The biggest pieces of content in Gears of War 3‘s ever so slightly delayed Horde Command DLC — the new maps — will also hit Xbox Live as part of another package, Epic’s announced. And a free one at that.

Due out on November 24th, the Versus Booster Map Pack will include a total of five maps; three from Horde Command (Azura, Blood Drive, Rustlung), plus two others (Bullet Marsh and Clocktower) from the original Gears.

The map pack won’t come with the other goodies included in the Horde DLC, so if you want the new fortification upgrades, characters, and/or weapon skins, you’ll have to dish out the 800 MS Points.
