Gears of War 3 beta: Three minutes of the most deliciously brutal and hilarious kills so far. Also, chicken-abuse!

We've been playing the Gears 3 beta for a day already. Here are our deliciously gory highlights

The Gears of War 3 beta might not start publicly until the 18th of this month (if you've bought a copy of Bulletstorm, anyway. Everyone else will have to wait 'til the 25th), but we've been fortunate enough to have early access since yesterday. And because we'd feel like bad men indeed if we kept all the fun to ourselves, we've recorded our early experiences and mashed then together into one big, bloody, beautiful highlights reel for you. There is gore. There are exploding heads. There are chickens being mulched spectacularly.Because everyone hates chickens.

We have a longerFullAccess Previewvideo coming later on, but in the meantime, click on, hit play, and see what hideous joys await you when the beta goes public later in the month.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
