EB Games grabbed a hold of Jim Brown, lead level designer at Epic Games, for a community event at its Broadway, Sydney store last night.
Fans were able to win tickets to the event in a competition, and those who won got to come down, meet the developers, hold the big-ass Lancer that Epic loves to bust out whenever it can, and of course: play the game.
There were giveaways aplenty and photos to be had for the lucky winners.
Gears of War: Judgment, the fourth in the series, is on shelves 19th March.
Check out a gallery of a few shots from the event below:
