Epic Finalizing Beta Content for Gears of War 3

by | @AttackFanboy | on January 7, 2011

Mike Capps of Epic Games recently spoke about the upcoming Beta for Gears of War 3, and what may or may not be included in the trial period.  “We know that the Gears 3 beta access codes will be highly sought-after, so our most passionate fans will get the inside track.

The beta starts in the spring and, honestly, we’re still debating what exactly is going to go into the beta so fans will want to be there from the very beginning to see how it evolves and grows,” stated the developer.

Personally, I think Gears has an awesome formula for online multiplayer.  The biggest problem that I had with Gears of War 2 was the actual functionality of multiplayer and playing the game outside of with a group of friends. Incorporating a matchmaking service for features like the Horde Mode that actually works, is key.  The Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Halo Franchises do this really well.

It’s also probably why they are so popular.  You can pick up any of these games at any time, friends online or not, and find a game with no hassle within just a few moments you are in on the action.  This is something that wasn’t possible in Gears 2 until long after the game’s initial buzz wore off.
