Epic Games released some great info for Gears of War fans today. For those that were upset about Gears of War 3 getting pushed to Q4 2011, there was only one morsel of information that offered any sort of respite. The promise of a free multiplayer beta during Q1 2011. Well today Epic released the following information on how to gain access to said beta. Take a look.
“What do I get for earning my wings in Gears 2?” This question has been floating around ever since Epic Games mentioned that they’d be rewarding die-hard Gears 2 players with something special in Gears of War 3. This prize is only for those brave enough to reach reach rank 100 in Gears 2-multiplayer; not an easy feat. Well gang, in a little over an hour you’ll have your answer. Epic is hosting a chat in which the prize will finally be revealed, along with some information about this weekend’s “Gears Weekend”. We’ll have the link for you here around 5:30 est, so make sure to hit refresh. And good luck to all you rank 100 folks.. I sure hope it’s not a weapon skin. 🙂

“We’re kicking off this Gears Weekend via a live stream tonight at 5:30 p.m. Eastern. During the stream, Epic Games Executive Producer Rod Fergusson will announce which Gears 3 unlock is tied to the Gears 2 Veteran Gear achievement. Since we’re making an announcement, this is a bit different than our typical Q & A streams. We may not have quite as much time dedicated to answering questions but feel free to send some to @gearsofwar3 and @raczilla on Twitter and we’ll try and answer a few if time permits. If you’re not able to watch the stream live on our Twitch.tv page, you can see the archive by visiting the page any time after the stream is finished. We’ll also post the video archive here on the Community Site.”
