On Thursday 3rd March, a team from Remedy travelled to London for a special community event, which allowed gamers the opportunity to check out the game for themselves before the official release in April. Gamers had a chance of gaining access to the event either by being an O2 member, and being given the chance through the company's reward system, or by a competition hosted on IGN UK.
Below are a collection of impressions, photos and interviews from Remedy's time in London.
