Gearbox assembling community event for June 11

Gearbox Software has announced plans to host its first-ever "Community Day" on June 11 in Dallas, Texas. The free event will take place at the Palladium Ballroom and feature several of the studio's games, along with developer panels.

The event will give players a chance to try out Duke Nukem Forever's multiplayer several days before it's alleged release on June 14. Panel topics will span Duke Nukem Forever, Borderlands, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Brothers in Arms and additional subjects. The day will also see the "first public unveiling of never-before-seen materials by Gearbox."

If you're interested in attending, you'll have to register for the event. For out-of-towners, the registration form also lists several hotels with discounted rates and complimentary shuttle service to the fiesta.
