Epic Games is all set to launch Gears of War 3's latest DLC, Fenix Rising. The content pack features some brand new multiplayer maps and skins but at the forefront of it all, is a brand new game mechanics.
The re-up mechanic will be familiar to anyone who has played a Call of Duty game in the past 5 years or so. It is similar to that franchise's Prestige mechanic. Essentially, what the re-up mechanic does is offer you a chance for glory by starting your level progression over once you reach level 100. Level 100 players can opt to start back over at level 1, resetting most but not all of their progression.
Choosing to re-up in Gears of War 3 will give you bragging rights and a custom colored player icon, letting everyone you play with know that you've achieved some pretty impressive feats in the game.
Also included in Fenix Rising are five new multiplayer maps and some awesome new multiplayer skins. Check out the official Gears of Wars website for more details on the Fenix Rising DLC at http://gearsofwar.xbox.com/.
