September 20th Release Date for Gears Of War 3

without comments

First, it was supposed to release in April. Then it got a really vague “Fall 2011″ release. Now, we finally have an official release date for Gears of War 3, scheduled for September 20th. Still, quite a while away, but it’s nice to have a solid date rather than an estimate.

No word on the release for the beta that was included with Bulletstorm… hopefully that’s soon, though it will give quite a gigantic buffer before the actual game is released. Color me excited. Sexually.

I’m still waiting to hear about a special/collector’s/limited edition before I preorder, however. It’s been rumored that they’ll [EPIC] will be going all-out for this limited, if there is even one, somewhat in the vain of the recent Call of Duty special editions. Different “levels” of the editions? Collectible items? Figures? We’ll see. I’m hoping so.

And so are you.

Bulletstorm’s “Epic Edition” = Gears of War 3 Beta

with one comment

For me, it’s pretty safe to say that I will almost definitely be getting this, solely for the Gears of War 3 beta.

But it’s also safe to say I’m pretty interested in Bulletstorm anyway. On top of the Gears of War 3 “morningbird” guaranteed beta access, the Epic Edition will include some bonuses for use in multiplayer: 25,000 EXP (not sure how much this will actually be worth in the game at this point), “visual upgrades” for the leash, Peace Maker Carbine, boots, and armor.

The Epic Edition will retail for $60 USD (the same as a normally-priced new game, unlike the Gears of War limited editions, which were at $70), and will be available in the US on February 22nd for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. Obviously, only the Xbox 360 version will include the Gears of War 3 beta; compare the Xbox “Epic” edition, to the PC’s and PS3′s “Limited” editions. Coincidence? You be the judge.

(I think not!)
