Multiplayer Reveal | New modes, new weapons & dedicated servers

#1 Posted by Fjordson (2433 posts) -

Some great looking videos over on Kotaku. Also:

Gears of War 3 is getting a public beta early next year, Epic Games revealed at an event this week at their studio.

This will be the first time a Gears of War game is getting a public beta. Epic Games' Rod Fergusson told the gathered press that the team has always wanted to do a public beta, but only if they could later use that feedback to improve the title.

Now that Gears of War 3's launch has been pushed back from April to the fall of 2011, the team thinks they will be able to to do just that.

No word yet on when next year the multiplayer beta will be hitting.

That art on the cover is cool, but that GOTCHA! bullshit cover design is annoying as fuck. GEARS 3! MULTIPLAYER INFO! TIME 4 CHAINSAW! I mean, no shit? You don't need to put that on your fucking cover. All you need is "Gears Of War 3" and it'll be good.

I have no idea who that person is, or why they are wearing that crazy armor.

Dedicated servers? YES! 
 
That fixes 90% of my complaints with Gears 2 online.
