In super-sized Twitter post today, Epic Game's Design Director, the one and only Cliff Bleszinski (@therealcliffyb), revealed the schedule for the Gears of War 3 beta which, if you own the Epic Edition of you are no doubt already playing (possibly pwning me) and subsequently not reading this story.

Here is what's in store for the beta testers:

* Monday, April 18th through Sunday, April 24th - Team Deathmatch on Thrashball and Checkout only

* Monday, April 25th through Sunday, May 1st - Team Deathmatch on Thrashball, Checkout, and Trenches only

* Monday, May 2nd through Sunday, May 8th - Team Deathmatch and King of the Hill on all four beta maps

* Monday, May 9th through Sunday, May 15th - Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill, and Capture the Leader on all four4 beta maps

The beta opens up for those who preordered Gears of War 3 at participating retailers on April 25th. As mentioned in our earlier coverage, though, several Epic staffers are continuing to give codes away via their Twitter feeds.
