Just in case it slipped your mind, the Gears Of War 3 beta starts today! According to Epic's Rod Fergusson, the beta went live as of 10:00 this morning and is now available to owners of the Bulletstorm Epic Edition.
Note that it's technically possible to preorder Gears 3 from GAME... get the beta key... and then cancel it. Just saying. Either way, you guys can get involved on Thursday.
Anyways, if you're the proud owner of the Bulletstorm Epic Edition, you'll need to pop in the disc and wait for a title update to add the beta to the main menu. It'll require a 50MB update followed by a 500MB download - and because technology can be a tricky beast, don't panic if it doesn't happen right away.
Like every other title update, it is likely to take a little time to propagate to all regions so don't freak out at 2:01.
The beta ends May 15th, and we'll be bringing you plenty of coverage along the way. Let us know what you make of it!
