Gears Of War 3 BETA Video Gameplay

Videos Xbox 360 Shooter Previews Epic News Action

Gears Of War 3 online multiplayer BETA has finally been unleashed upon the world.  So far Team Deathmatch (Ranked and Public are only available) but this is keeping us all very busy. There are currently only two available maps Thrashball (football field) and Checkout (small shopping mall) – both a relatively small.  The video game play runs you through two rounds of Thrashball.

So far searching for matches especially ranked ones take quite a long time as the game does some sort of quality check to make sure your matched up with players in your area /country to eliminate any possibility of lag.  Unfortunately at the moment matching you up with players of similar level and skill is not possible, so you might end up in a game with a group of level 25’s that run around destroying everyone with one shot kills with their shotguns and are near next to impossible to take down.   This happened a few times and our pitiful little group of level 1 to 5’s were destroy 14 respawns  zip.

Team Deathmatch on both maps starts both teams off with 15 re-spawns a piece.  Die and you draw a resource point from the re-spawn pool. Once you deplete your re-spawns, the remaining players on the team are left to survive  in a sudden death situation where if you die you’re out of the game /round.  When the final player is eliminated the round ends and the fun starts all over again.  Team Deathmatch is first to three and from playing approx 40+ games so far the first few games took a while, but now as the players get better and better a rounds can be finished in less than 3 mins.

The video gameplay below will give you a greater understanding on how everything works from gameplay to also the Stats and Award / Challenges that you can unlock by performing specific kills etc within the game.  Sit back and enjoy the video game play of MasterAbbott getting owned.  (at least I didn’t end up last)  😉

    Don’t really like the 15 respawn idea but I suppose I’d have to play it and experience it before passing judgement.

  • No its great trust me I think this is a very good way for Team Deathmatch. Time limits are a little boring. This makes u work hard to stay alive !! 😉

    Really excited about the release of Gears3, lets just hope that they kick the cheating noobs asap and make the game more enjoyable for others…Hisss at them noobs.

    • Yes 1st day in and we already have level 25’s running around.

  • all I have to say after playing last night.. is GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!! I will prob have to end up buying a dot for my screen so I can shoot the shotgun off the hip and hit the head every time. I am sure too playing last night.. there were bloody cheaters.. they ran way to fast.. and level 24 with only 38,000 XP, does that sound right? When you need 4500 XP to get to Rank 2?

    • Yes that smells like a bit of cheating is going on .. time to EPIC to crack that whip and get rid of the cheaters !!

  • Prism

    Well lets see if the developers actually do something about it instead of leaving it like the epic Modern Warfare 2. not same developer obviously but the lack of monitoring on Mw2 and any other games to be fair is stupid. Let’s play Fair! 🙂

  • hopefully the full release will be bug free… lol what am i saying :p
