By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Marcus Fenix has led a troubled life. His childhood home was invaded by the Locust. He never got to go to school at the Academy, and ended up in prison after defying orders. Players will be most familiar with Marcus in his role as a long-serving COG soldier. Now, players can revisit all of the locations from key points in Marcus' life with the addition of the "Fenix Rising" DLC. The DLC adds seven more achievements worth a total of 250G.
