Players gain access to Gears of War 3 Beta at two separate times

March 4, 2011, By Christian Davis

The Gears of War 3 Beta is going to be 3 weeks long and you’ll definitely be sorry if you don’t gain access to it. Gaining access to the beta is extremely easy. If you bought Bulletstorm you gain access. If you pre-order Gears of War 3, you gain access. There is an advantage of choosing one over the other however.

If you purchased Bulletstorm’s Epic Edition, you’ll gain access to the beta on April 18th. If you pre-ordered it from Gamestop, GAME, or Game Station, then you’ll get into the beta on April 25th.

All beta participants will receive the Retro Plated Golden Lancer, along with a plethora of other other unlockables listed below.
