Epic Games has revealed details about the first download for its third-person shooter Gears of War 3.

The Horde Command pack launches Nov. 1  and will cost 800 points ($10).

The DLC will include fresh fortification upgrades, new characters, weapon skins and three new maps. Here are details on each map straight from Microsoft and Epic:

Blood Drive. The Jacinto Medical Plaza was overwhelmed by evacuated citizens after the government-sanctioned Hammer Strikes, and the ensuing riots quickly turned this safe haven into a dangerous inferno. An abundance of high ground and funneled choke points make this map a returning favorite to Horde.

Rustlung. Once the pride of the Royal Tyran Navy, the foredecks of this decommissioned battleship are now riddled with bullet holes. Any team with the fortitude to hold the exposed central torpedo bay will find that the ship’s Loader has been replaced with a battle-ready Silverback mech suit.

Azura. This island resort was once the exclusive domain of Sera’s educated elite, but the tranquil water gardens and lush foliage have become a hotly contested combat zone. Dual snipers overlook a powerful explosive weapon, while the defensive central platform may be your last resort of retreat.

This is one of several downloads planned for Gears of War 3. Microsoft recently revealed the game sold 3 million copies in its first week.
