Gears of War 3 Beta News
The Gears of War 3 beta is in full swing now and on May 8th the guys at Epic Games are releasing the “Never Fight Alone” part of the beta. Now this will not be open to everyone. People who pre-ordered Gears 3 or have Bulletstorm will have access but they will also have a chance to get a friend access with a “buddy token”. These tokens will be emailed out to players on May 8th, however you gotta give a little to get a little. To earn the tokens you must complete a few things by May 4th. They are:
— Purchase any “Gears of War” content from Xbox Live Marketplace (including a “Gears of War” Game Add-on, a “Gears of War” Games on Demand title, or a “Gears of War” Avatar item)
— Play 20 or more hours of the “Gears of War 3” beta (any time already spent in the beta will count toward this challenge)
— Add a 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscription to your existing account (purchased from retail or online)
— Play more than 100 hours of any “Gears of War” title, lifetime to date
So time to get to work earning some tokens. Also check back here sometime this week because I will announce a chance to play the Gears of War 3 beta with a couple of our writers , myself included.
