Epic Games Announces Gears of War 3 Never Fight Alone Multiplayer Beta Program

Earn tokens by doing all things Gears on Xbox Live, give them to friends on May 8.
If you’ve been playing the lone wolf in the ongoing Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta, now is the time to invite a friend. Epic Games launched its Never Fight Alone program today, enabling beta testers to earn extra beta keys by completing a number of tasks, including simply playing the game.

Starting today, anyone that has played at least one multiplayer round in the ongoing Gears of War 3 beta will have a chance to receive a buddy token. The token can then be shared with a friend on Xbox Live, giving them access to the beta.

In the U.S., beta testers can earn up to five tokens by completing any or all of the following tasks by Wednesday, May 4:
— Purchase any Gears of War content from Xbox Live Marketplace (including a Gears of War game add-on, a Gears of War Games on Demand title, or a Gears of War Avatar item)

— Play 20 or more hours of the Gears of War 3 beta (any time already spent in the beta will count toward this challenge)

— Add a 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscription to your existing account (purchased from retail or online)

— Play more than 100 hours of any Gears of War title, lifetime to date

Epic Games noted that while every beta participant worldwide has the chance to unlock a buddy token, only U.S. residents will have the ability to earn more than one.

Epic and Xbox Live are keeping track of all token earning, and everyone that acquires digital coinage will be emailed their additional beta keys on May 8, kicking off the official Never Fight Alone period.

Gears of War 3 is an Xbox 360 exclusive. The game is set to ship on September 20.
