So. Gears of War 3. Played it yet? No? Got Xbox Live? Yes? You're in luck! In an oddly-timed special, the friendly sorts over at Epic Games and Microsoft have decided to launch the game's demo, three months after the full version hit shelves.
If you've been meaning to test the waters, here's an appropriately damp place to start: The opening chapter of the second act from Gears 3 - Shipwreck.
At this stage, the demo is available for Xbox Live Gold members - and only those living in certain parts of the globe. American gamers are in luck, while Canada and the UK are missing out on this sample-tastic taste of Gears. We'll keep you posted if anything changes.
