    So now they're releasing DLC for a game before the game itself is out? Awesome...

    It came out on the 6th on this side of the pond. so effectively it IS post release.

    I'll wait on a few reviews before a purchase could end up being a bargain bin game

    It's not that strange really. It's content that came with the Special Edition of the game, their just allowing everyone else to pay to get it with a regular edition. It's not paying for content "already on the disc" in any way shape or form. And as the post says, it's been released in Europe so it's not a DLC released before the game. In my opinion it looks pretty good, but I agree with Antareal about waiting. Definitely have a good feeling about it though.

    I think they should have waited at least until the US got it.

    wow, it's pretty obvious how much DLC is a cash grab now, huh?

    Unlock codes are the new way of companies slapping their fans in the face. Gotta love it. Still, at least it's only 400.
    You seem a little furious...

    Ill wait for a black Friday special and then buy the DLC.

    This sounds like another game capitalizing on the recent fad of a "Horde mode''.
    Nobody does it quite like Gears though.

    Can anyone tell me about this game? Looks like it could be like a Dante's Inferno or Castlelvania:LoS, which would make me very interested.

    Eh... Still tho. Most releases aren't more than a few days apart. Theres no need to be slapping us in the face with content before the disc is even technically available. I love me some DLC, but they are abusing the hell out of it..
    Really? THAT offended you?
