The general multiplayer beta for Gears of War 3, for all the beta participants who didn’t have a code from the Bulletstorm: Epic Edition, officially launched earlier this week. We missed a couple of days of playtime because of the last days of Passover, but we’re looking forward to catching up with the regular schedule now that it has started. The general Gears 3 multiplayer beta schedule has been split into three parts, as follows:

April 25th to May 1st: This first week of the beta starts off with the new Team Deathmatch and King of the Hill modes on the Thrashball, Checkout and Trenches maps.

May 2nd to 8th: Capture the Leader will be added to the mix, on a fan-picked map, from a Facebook voting contest, Old Town.

May 9th to 15th: All three modes will be available, and all four maps will be available.

As previously announced, players participating in the multiplayer beta will have the opportunity to unlock exclusive medals, weapon skins, characters variants and more that will all be open for them when the retail version launches on September 20th.
