Mike Capps, President of Epic Games, told Techland that it’s “still debating” as to what should be included into the Gears of War 3 MP beta.
“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,” said Capps.
He also revealed how the idea of including the Gears 3 BETA with every copy of Bulletstorm came to mind
“I think Crackdown was a really good example. That game was used to drive a really strong Halo 3 beta, but it was also the other way around, too,” he said.
Bulletstorm releases on Feb 22 and the Gears beta will commence sometime this year before the game launches in fall 2011.
