Gears of War 3 Beta is upon us

So today is April 25th, just another tired Monday of school/work/mundane tasks. Well you're wrong, because the GameStop preorders of Gears of War 3 beta start RIGHT FUCKING NOW.

Here is a list of challenges that are found in the beta:

  • Beta Tester Medal: Complete one match in the beta to unlock the Beta Tester medal, which will carry over to your gamer profile in the final game. The Beta Tester title will be featured in the "Gears 3" multiplayer lobby as well.  
  • Thrashball Cole: Complete 50 matches in any game type to unlock the Thrashball Cole character variant in the beta. Once unlocked, complete 10 matches as Thrashball Cole during the beta and the character will carry over to your gamer profile in the final game. 
  • Gold-Plated Retro Lancer: Show your ultimate "Gears of War" fandom by unlocking the Gold-Plated Retro Lancer. Complete 90 matches in any game type to unlock it for the beta, and score 100 kills with it once unlocked to carry the exclusive weapon skin over to your gamer profile in the final game.  
  • Flaming Hammerburst: Complete one match by Sunday, April 24 and unlock this weapon variant. 
  •  Flaming Lancer: Complete one match during the week of April 25 and unlock this weapon variant. 
  • Flaming Sawed-Off Shotgun: Complete one match during the week of May 2 to unlock this weapon variant.  
  • Flaming Gnasher Shotgun: Complete one match during the week of May 9 to unlock this weapon variant. 
So who else is going to be playing today? I've been jonesin'  (I think the first time I've gotten use that phrase) for some Gears after the shitfest that was Gears 2. So far it seems like 3 is bringing back the kick ass!

Lets hope the MP isnt fucked to hell like 2 was.

@Lhos I'm having a ton of fun with it right now. No p2p anymore since they're using dedicated servers. That should make it 10x better already :D

I don't care for TPS that much but I kinda like Gears so I'll probably at least try it out.

I've never been a fan of Gears, but the beta looks great! Wish I had pre-ordered...
