On the Xbox 360 one of the hardest hitting exclusives is none other than Epic Games’ Gears of War. Currently, the franchise is on its second iteration as Gears of War 2 for the Xbox 360 but its been known for quite some time that Gears of War 3 is quickly approaching. In fact, those who picked up Epic’s Bulletstorm will be getting early access to a beta version of the game with pre-orderers and the like getting access some time after.
Seeing how Gears of War 3 is expected to be a huge launch it’s no surprise that Epic Games is expecting a huge turn out for the beta test. In fact, the studio has just come forth today to let us know that they are expecting an astonishing 1 million beta testers to run Gears of War 3 through its paces before it actually hits the market. In turn this means a better experience for gamers actually purchasing the game come September 28th of this year.
As you’re sure to know, other popular games like Modern Warfare 2 did not feature a beta test and not long after hitting the market some malicious users found exploits that essentially brought the game’s online community to its knees. In other words, Gears of War 3 having a beta test that is expected to reach the scale of 1 million users is definitely a very, very good thing.
