Cole Train!

In a post on the Gears of War Forums, it has been announced that there will be a change to the way that weapon skins are unlocked for participants in the Gears of War Ultimate Edition beta. In their words:

Hey folks,

Due to many issues with folks getting into the beta due to code receiving and redeeming issues, we have decided to make all weapons skins for the beta available to all users who have participated in the beta for at least two days at any point during its' duration (does not need to be consecutive days). Additionally, as of Day 4 in the beta we will now make all past Beta skin unlocks available for use throughout the rest of the beta's duration.

We understand that this may be frustrating for some of you who have logged in every day to play – please understand that there are many players who were unable to get into the beta due to no fault of their own.

We will still have a timed exclusive to reward the most loyal beta players – on Saturday from 2:00 - 5:00 PM PDT (4:00 - 7:00 PM Mexico/CDT, 5:00 - 8:00 PM EDT, 10:00 PM - 1:00 AM GMT) we will be giving away the Cole Train skin only to players who play during that exact time period.

Thank you for understanding,

The Coalition Team

So basically, play for 2 days and you'll get all the beta weapon skins unlocked, play today in the allocated time slot and you'll get the Cole Train skin! Simples!
