Gears of War 3 beta video – Full Access Preview

The Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta goes live on Monday, April 25. Can’t wait that long? Buy a copy of Bulletstorm and the beta begins a week earlier on Monday, April 18. Can’t wait even that long? Well, you’re in luck, you impatient bastards – we not only have extra early access to the beta this week, we just recorded 22 minutes of gameplay and commentary to share with you RIGHT NOW.

Watch as Chris Antista massacres chickens! Marvel as Charlie Barratt shares his expert knowledge on fire alarms! And then sigh with relief as Henry Gilbert actually gets some shit done, littering bloodied and bayonetted bodies across three maps (the haunted supermarket Checkout, the former sports arena Thrashball, the suspiciously Modern Warfare-esque Old Town) and across two modes (Team Deathmatch, Capture the Leader).

Plus, keep checking GamesRadar’s Twitter and Facebook today for a chance to win your own early access to the Gears 3 beta. The next enemy to feel our rage - or, more likely, humiliate us completely - could be you!

    I like Henry as much as the next guy, but watching him play was kinda painful.

    Conveniently placed chest-high objects as far as the eye can see! Also, only SUCKERS wear combat helmets.
