If you are one of the lucky people who received a beta key for the upcoming multiplayer beta of Gears of War 3, you can circle the month of April on your calendar. Epic Games has announced that the beta will go live sometime in the middle of that month, featuring three different game modes.

Microsoft is changing things up a little as well, allowing for you, the gamer, to choose what maps you want to see in the beta. To vote on your favourite map, head over to the Official Gears of War Facebook page.

If you aren't already and want to be one of the lucky few to get your hands on this exclusive beta, every copy of Bulletstorm (Epic Edition) comes with an invite to join the beta when it goes live.
