Everyone who purchased a Season Pass for Gears of War 3 has been enjoying the recent 'Horde Command Pack' which added three brand new maps, three new online character skins, a handful of new fortifications for Horde mode, and some brand spanking new achievements. Once gamers finished rounding out their gamerscore with those achievements, they'll have even more to collect when the quickly approaching 'RAAM's Shadow' add-on hits Gears of War 3 later this December. Fans have been left in the dark of 'RAAM's Shadow' — figuratively speaking — but Epic Games has finally shed a little light on the additional content's achievements. There are a total of 10 brand new chievos that can be obtained in the new downloadable pack, and they add another 250 gamerscore for anyone brave enough to suit up and attempt to earn them. The list of achievements that were revealed don't spoil anything that wasn't already previously announced by Epic Games, so feel free to browse through the official list below.
- Welcome to Zeta — Complete “RAAM’s Shadow” in Standard Campaign on any difficulty. (25 points)
- Some Friendly Competition — Completed “RAAM’s Shadow” in Arcade on any difficulty. (25 points)
- Help from my Friends — Completed “RAAM’s Shadow” in 4 player co-op in Arcade or Standard Mode. (25 points)

Gears of War 3's first campaign add-on sounds like it may be one of the more exciting pieces of content provided on the Xbox 360 to-date, and Gears-heads will undoubtedly be excited to revisit some old favorites from the franchise such as Tai, Kim, and Barrick. The DLC certainly sounds promising, and it's also nice that those who actually pre-purchased the content won't see it given away for free less than a month later — as many Gears of War 3 Season Pass holders did with the 'Horde Command Pack' maps.
Gears of War 3's 'RAAM's Shadow' DLC will be available on December 13th for 1,200 MS Points, or free for those who purchased the Season Pass.
