The new Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta on Xbox 360, a sneak preview of the Gears game coming out on the Xbox 360 on September 20, combines the cover-based shooting of old Gears games with that fever for unlocking new medals, weapons and ranks that's been catching in competitive shooter after competitive shooter since Call of Duty IV.
