With Gears of War 3 delayed, people are going to have to wait a long time before they get their hands on Epic’s brutal cover based shooter. Even waiting for the Beta might be a stretch for some people, but never fear, Bulletstorm “Epic Edition” will grant players early access to the Gears of War 3 beta.

Aside from letting you in early, the “Epic Edition” will include “25,000 experience points, visual upgrades for their iconic leash, deadly Peace Maker Carbine, boots and armor.” However this edition of the game will only be on the Xbox360 (As Gears of War is exclusive to the console), and it will cost you $59.99.

The Bulletstorm Epic Edition will release alongside the standard edition on the 22nd of February. No word on how much earlier this will get you into the Beta, as the date for the Beta itself hasn’t even been announced yet, though it’s slated to be “Early 2011”.
