Gears of War 3 Beta Hub – All Medals & Ribbons Listed and Much More

Posted By | On 26th, Apr. 2011 Under Feature, Launch Center, News, offbeat

Gears of War 3 has tons of new additions as seen from the beta which is now available to anyone that pre-ordered the game.  The beta has tones of unlocks that will carry over to the full retail version of the game when it’s out on September 20th, 2011 for the Xbox 360.  Some cool additions to the game are ribbons and medals, which you do not only gain XP from but the Medals can be put on your player card for everyone to see in the multiplayer lobby.  The more times you do what is required to unlock a medal the more sharp the medal will start looking, which is an innovative as well as never been seen before in a third-person shooter game to my knowledge.  Here a list of all the Medals and Ribbons you can attain.
