Gears 3 beta via Bulletstorm requires disc

Until a more Locust alternative arrives.

Gaining a headstart entry to the Gears of War 3 beta via the Epic Edition of Bulletstorm requires more than the supplied code - you'll need your Bulletstorm game disc, too.

"You need the disc," tweeted Gears of War executive director Rod Fergusson. "The Epic Edition code only adds a button on the Bulletstorm main menu."

Those of you with the disc and code get to play the Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta early. It also sounds as though there will be some exclusive content for the early-birds as well.

Fergusson promised more beta information "later this week".

Bulletstorm arrives this week on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Gears of War 3, an Xbox 360 exclusive, arrives this autumn.
