Gears of War 3 Multiplayer Beta Unlockables

The Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta in full swing and strategies for handling new weapons, modes and maps are quickly developing — but if you need an extra incentive to play lots of Gears 3 before it hits shelves, Epic Games has you covered.

Now through the end of the four-week beta, players can unlock exclusive in-game content for multiplayer just by playing in the beta, which is open to owners of the Bulletstorm: Epic Edition (read: the Xbox 360 version of the game) and anybody who has preordered Gears 3 from Gamestop. We’ve got a full list of the unlockables and what it takes to get them into the full version of Gears 3 when it is released. And read on to find out when more maps and multiplayer modes will be unlocked in the beta.

      April 18th – April 24th: TDM on Thrashball and Checkout.
