Gears of War 3: Fenix Rising Character skins, Re-up Rank

Gears of War 3 “Fenix Rising” Map Pack featuring new Character skins and a Re-up Rank system is set to be released on January 17th 2012. Finally a reason to play on those double XP weekends when I’m already a level 100.

New Systems Re-Upping – Essentially a “prestige” System. Players can “re-enlist” and being their rank from 1 again after reaching level 100. All unlocks and Custom Items remain. Additionally Re-Upping can grant you access to new Weapon Skins! – You can Re-Up through the Four Tiers of Colors. Bronze -Red – Green – Gold.

Re-Up Plasma – Animated flowing plasma in gold.
Re-Up Omen – Shiny, red Omen.
Re-Up Electric – Animated, golden electric shocks.

COG Character skins included in the Fenix Rising DLC:

Recruit Clayton – Clayton was born a Gear, grew up a Gear, and on the very day he became eligible, he signed himself up to become the capable, confident, and devoted Gear he’d always known he could be.

Thrashball Cole (Limited Edition) – The Cole Train prefers to take the most direct path to the Locust Horde in any situation. What he lacks in finesse, he makes up in raw energy.

Locust Character skins included in the Fenix Rising DLC:

Savage Marauder – Locust Marauders were the first to form any sort of organisation outside of the Hollow – if their brutal infighting and bloodthirsty raiding parties could truly be called organised.

Savage Kantus (Limited Edition) – The Savage Kantus were profoundly impacted by the loss of the Hollow. They have reverted to a primal, shamanistic state, and their battle cries have taken a dark, melancholy turn. Few sounds are as terrifying to human ears.
