Play GoW3 Beta? Bring a Friend!
For those of you playing the Gears of War 3 beta, if you’re waiting for your friends to get a code and join you, but they’re either not having any luck blagging one from websites and Twitter or haven’t pre-ordered from places like GAME.co.uk who gave out codes for buying Bulletstorm.
If you have a favourite or ‘special’ friend that you want to play with in the beta, as long as you’ve played one game in the beta, you will receive a ‘buddy token’ to give to that special friend who will then be able to join you from May 8th as that’s when the ‘Never Fight Alone’ phase starts.
New players entering the beta on 8 May will have a chance to cross chainsaws with their buddies in three new “Gears of War 3” competitive modes (Team Deathmatch, Capture the Leader and King of the Hill) on four stunning multiplayer maps (Thrashball, Checkout, Trenches and Old Town). Additionally, beta recruits can unlock an array of exciting content such as exclusive medals, weapon skins and character variants like the fan-favourite Thrashball Cole, which they can carry over to their retail copy of “Gears of War 3” when it launches on 20 September.
