Gears of War 3 | Why early beta access is important

Pretty much every Gears fan is aware of the Gears of War 3 Beta expected next year (April maybe?) and almost all are also aware of the Bulletstorm ‘Epic Edition’ – the version of the upcoming shooter, Bulletstorm, which guarantees early access to the Gears of War 3 Beta. The announcement has sent Gears fans in to a pre-order frenzy, but why is getting early access to the Gears of War 3 Beta so important?

Well, according to Gears Viking (aka Rod Fergusson), there are two good reasons.

The first reason is that there will be a cap on the number of players who will be allowed to play the Beta.  So get in early, or you will miss out on the second reason – “we will have an exclusive in-game reward that will require a high level to achieve. Earlier access means more time to level up”.

Now I hope that all the people who pre-order Bulletstorm just to get early access to the Gears 3 Beta remember that there is a rather decent looking game to play first in Bulletstorm…otherwise that’s a very expensive Beta access you just bought.
