Last week, we brought you the story
of Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford doing a public Q&A in London about Duke Nukem Forever
. Many American community members were upset at this lack of opportunity. Community Member, http://www.trueachievements.com/Beachem.htm
might have said it best with:
Oh man.....one of the men I respect the most in the gaming industry. I [expletive deleted] love Gearbox. Would love to meet Randy Pitchford and ask him a ton of questions. Sucks it is only in the UK
Well, Beachem, Gearbox has heard your plea and acquiesced to your request! In a tweet
issued a few minutes ago, @GearboxSoftware announced the first-ever Gearbox Community Day in Dallas, Texas on June 11th from 10AM-6PM.
Gearbox is promoting the event by telling gamers:
This will be your chance to play Duke Nukem Forever alongside the Gearbox crew before the game is released in North America. You'll get to hear the stories and meet the people behind some of Gearbox's biggest games, including Borderlands, Brothers in Arms, Aliens: Colonial Marines and more!
The best news, however, is that the event is FREE! To attend simply sign up for the event using the external link

will be released internationally on June 10th with a North American release a few days later on June 14th.LEGAL FINE PRINT
