Gears of War 3 Beta Ends May 16–Thanks for Joining Us!

After four weeks of executions performed, medals awarded, skins unlocked, and enemies decimated, our time together in the Gears 3 Beta is coming to an end. The servers go dark at 2:00 AM PDT on Monday, May 16, after which you will be unable to connect to multiplayer matches. If you want to hang on to any of your retail unlocks earned during the Beta, please do not delete your Gears 3 Beta saved games—you can delete the Beta executable itself, but hang on to those saves! (Step-by-step details below.) Thanks again for playing, and we’ll see you again on September 20!

To delete the Gears 3 Beta but leave your saves intact:

  • Go to the System Settings menu on your Xbox 360
  • Select “Memory”
  • Select “Games”
  • Select the Gears of War 3 Beta (507MB) and delete it.

Unlock the Flaming Gnasher!

Remember to unlock the Flaming Gnasher this week by playing one match in the Gears 3 beta. If you unlock it in the beta you’ll also be able to use it in the full retail version of Gears of War 3, launching September 20th.
