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 longer Full Access Preview video 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.
