Ok, this should be titled ‘My’ next gaming addiction but Gears of War 3 Multiplayer Beta has opened up and there is a short review over at Ars. If you purchase Bulletstorm Epic Edition (who hasn’t!!??) you can join the beta on April 19th; if you pre-purchase Gears you can join the beta on April 25th as I will. Check out the most recent video release below from the Gears development team and prepare to join the fight!
Okay, one minute into the video, and I’m in. Horde mode, motherfucker!
But what, exactly, is a multiplayer beta? A short-lived test run of the game? Who care, let’s do it.
Yeah, this game is shaping up to be the best of 2011. I can’t wait to check it out. The multiplayer beta goes until May 15th. The game launches on September 20th. The pre-order/beta invite is only for pre-orders from Gamestop as far as I can tell.
