Gears of War 3: The end of beta! (sadness) & Collector’s edition contents! (joy)

The Gears 3 Beta is over. Sadness ensues. Gears fans will have to wait all the way until September 20th in order to witness the climatic conclusion of Epic’s gory masterpiece. The Beta was a well organized frag fest that offered up very few headaches, and a whole lot of fun. With dedicated servers and an excellent net code, Gears of War 3 was one of the smoothest multiplayer games I’ve ever played. Also, check out the contents of the Gears 3: Collector’s edition… wow

I wasn’t lucky(or popular) enough to get into the friends and family preview last week, but still I did manage to squeeze in a week early due to my purchase of the Bulletstorm “epic” edition. While I did get some hands on time at PAX: East, I didn’t really have a chance to soak up how amazing Gears 3 is really going to be.

PAX East 2011: Gears Of War 3 Hands On – A Lancer To My Heart

PAX East 2011: Gears of War 3 hands on – A lancer to my heart

Often viewed as “the most anticipated game of 2011”, Gears of War 3 is set to burst from its emergence hole on September 20th of 2011.
