As many of you are aware, during E3 2013 in Los Angeles earlier this month we invited several of our most dedicated and hardworking community members to join us at the show and check out what we’ve been working on for the past couple of years. Our lucky attendees flew in from far and wide to join us from their home towns in the USA, UK and Russia, and were treated to exclusive, no-holds-barred behind the scenes access to our games, our team and everything we had to show.
E3 is the biggest yearly event for gaming and technology, with access normally restricted to key members of the gaming industry – developers, manufacturers and press specifically. But, rather than let the elite few have all the fun, we here at Eidos-Montreal asked ourselves “why shouldn’t our true fans be the first to play the game?”
Take a behind the scenes look at the experience of community members as they took a firsthand look at our work and met the teams behind our games.
