Gears of War fans might not be able to pick up a copy of Epic Games’ recently delayed threequel Gears of War 3 as soon as they had hoped, however Epic has announced that players will still be able to get their hands on the game prior to the game’s launch next fall, compliments of a multiplayer beta.
Epic hasn’t shared any other details about the beta, other than it will be held sometime next year. Epic did, however, reveal that multiplayer in Gears 3 will use dedicated servers to “drive a balanced, optimized, and thrilling online experience for Gearheards everywhere,” the developer explained on its official site.
Now that Epic has bought itself some time with the delay, the developers will be able to take advantage of the feedback they receive from beta players, something they haven’t had time to do in the past. In other words, Gears 3 multiplayer should be far and away the best of the series. Guess we'll find out if that's the case in a couple months.
