Gears of War 3 Multiplayer Beta, Dedicated Servers
Gears of War 3 may have been delayed to make it a holiday release, but the team at Epic wont be resting on their laurels in the downtime. Epic announced at a recent press event that the game will be getting a multiplayer beta in early 2011. And it seems that Epic will be taking some lessons to heart for the final product, since the longer release schedule allows them to respond to player feedback.
The beta will show off the social match and host migration features. The final game will run on dedicated servers, so those will be tested in the beta as well. To that end, executive producer Rod Fergusson revealed that the team had been testing dedicated servers in Gears of War 2 with unwitting players.
