Back in October, Gears of War 3
from its originally planned April release until the end of the year. Microsoft have confirmed today exactly when we'll get the game, launching worldwide on September 20th
. Japanese gamers will have to wait two days longer than everyone else however, with the game scheduled to hit their stores on September 22nd.
Epic Games' Rod Fergusson teased yesterday
that there will be lots of news about the game's beta coming this week and next, so keep your eyes out for that.
And just in case you missed it in the news post about Bulletstorm's DLC
yesterday; in order to access the "exclusive headstart" to the Gears 3
beta that the Epic Edition provides you, you will need to keep a hold of the game's disc as the beta will run through its menu.
