Posted: 12:32PM

Gears of War 3 is the next hotly anticipated title from Epic Games, so it goes without question that this bit of news is certainly welcome. The Gears of War 3 beta has been detailed, with the multiplayer beta starting on April 25th and running to May 15th. If you purchased Bulletstorm: Epic Edition (the latest from Epic), then you will get access to the beta a week early. This is just for Xbox 360 owners out there, but Epic will have three new competitive modes and four new maps become available over the course of the beta. If you play the beta, you will have the chance to unlock some content in it that will then carry over to the retail game's launch on September 20th. You can unlock the Beta Tester Medal which will show up on your gamer profile in the full game, the Flaming Hammerburst, Flaming Lancer, Flaming Gnasher Shotgun, and Flaming Sawed-Off Shotgun weapons, Thrashball Cole skin, and the Gold-Plated Retro Lancer. To unlock the Cole skin, you need to complete 50 matches of any game type in the beta, then complete ten matches once you have unlocked the skin. For the Gold-Plated Retro Lancer, you need to complete 90 matches and then get 100 kills with the weapon to have unlock in the full game. The other unlocks happen for completing a match, with the weapons requiring a match completion by certain dates.
