How do you get exclusive early access to the Gears of War 3 beta? By buying the Epic Edition of Bulletstorm, Epic Games has announced.

The Epic Edition costs $59.99 Stateside, and will be available with the normal edition on 22nd February there, 25th February here.

There's no word on when the Gears of War 3 beta will begin. Apparently we need to check the back of the Bulletstorm pack for details.

The last we heard, the Gears 3 beta was due to kick off in early 2011.

The Bulletstorm Epic Edition also packs 25,000 bonus experience points, visual upgrades for the game's inventive leash, a Peace Maker Carbine, boots and some armour.

Gears of War 3 was delayed recently from an April 2011 launch to an autumn 2011 release.
