With "Gears of War 3" scheduled for release in September, EPIC Games released a Beta test for fans who preordered the latest chapter in this epic saga. The release was for a limited time, April 25 to May 15, and consisted of three types of multiplayer games, four maps and a plethora of unlockable content.
Being a Gears fanatic, EastBayRI.com had to pre-order "Gears of War 3" and get access to the beta release. This release is just the multiplayer version which allows you to play against others in four beautifully constructed maps. EastBayRI.com is not a huge fan of multiplayer shooters and only played a few matches in Gears 2. They're a total "noob" when starting Gears 3. Playing against AI characters in story mode of Gears 2 did not prepare them for fighting against hardcore gears fans.
