Gears of War 3 is just a week away now, folks, with Epic's climactic conclusion to the trilogy due to hit store shelves on September 20th. And while we'll all be diving into the single-player to find out just how it all ends, we'll be there, months, even years later, duking it online, plunging all manner of devilishly sharp instruments into each others virtual flesh.
If you do so happen to purchase a copy upon release and play an online match or two between the 20th to the 26th, Epic have prepared a tasty reward for all you lucky chaps; access to the Golden skins for both the Lancer and the Hammerburst. It's unclear whether you'll have to complete a particular challenge exclusive to that week, or whether simply hopping online will unlock the skins. We'll keep you posted on that. [Joystiq]
