Although Gears of War 3 has been delayed from its original April 2011 release date until sometime in the fourth quarter, fans of the series will be able to gain early access to the beta—as long as they purchase the special edition of Epic’s upcoming game, Bulletstorm.
Bulletstorm is a third person shooter that allows you to gain experience which unlocks upgrades, as you wade through wave after wave of enemy. Check out the trailer for a look at the fast paced action shooter from Epic and developer People Can Fly, which releases early next year.
Along with the beta access to Gears of War 3’s multiplayer, you will also receive 25,000 experience points, visual upgrades to the “leash” (a key weapon in the game), a powerful weapon called the “Peace Maker Carbine”, and a set of boots and armor.
Although the beta offer is only for the Xbox 360 (as is Gears of War 3, which remains a Microsoft exclusive), Bulletstorm will be released on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 22, 2011 in the U.S.
