The Gears 3 beta has been rolling for a while now, and it’s actually a very solid (if shotgun orientated) experience. If you have a friend who didn’t managed to snag a beta code then fear not, as Epic has started a promotion called ““Never Fight Alone.”
Playing at least one match in the beta will earn you a token which will bag you a beta code to give out to a mate. Additional codes can be earned by doing the following:
- Buy Gears of War from Games on Demand, any of the Gears DLC or a Gears Avatar
- Play 20 + hours of the Gears of War 3 beta
- Buy a 12-month Gold subscription
- Play 100 hours of any Gears of War title, lifetime to date
Microsoft will email you the codes by May 8.
