Because Cliffy B is not a man that is easily outdone, Epic Games has announced that Gears of War 3 will get a multiplayer beta next year. It’s said to come in early 2011 but none of the finer details have been released at this time. With the game being pushed back half a year, the company can now afford to do a beta test on the game.
Sadly, a beta test would have worked wonders on Gears of War 2 which has been universally acclaimed as a buggy mess of a game, especially in the online department. Well, only in the online department actually.
Better yet, Epic also announced that there will be dedicated server support. This should help with some of the problems that Gears of War 2 had at launch, fingers crossed.
See you around this time next years Gears 3.
