European gamers get ready to frag the development team of Gears of War this Saturday February 24th. Note that the games will take place on the two free maps Old Bones and Raven Down, so download those ahead of time from the Xbox Live Marketplace.

European gamers get ready to frag the development team of Gears of War this coming weekend. Who better to frag than the lead designer Cliffy B.

Xbox and Epic are inviting Xbox Live gamers across Europe to test their skills playing Gears of War against Epic Games, the developer of the game! From 1900 to 2100 GMT on Saturday 24th February, the Epic team, led by Lead Designer Cliffy B and Vice President Mark Rein, will be taking on gamers from the 5 million strong Xbox Live global community.

Marcus Fenix wannabes are being asked to check their chainsaws and grab some ammo, because this is their chance to find out if they can mix it with the guys who created the game!

The battles will take place on the Old Bones and Raven Down maps, both available now for free download on Xbox Live Marketplace. Gamers who want to take part just have to add any of the GamerTags below to their Friends List (please note that Cliffy B and Mark Rein will be playing in most games), get on Xbox Live between 1900 and 2100 GMT (2000 and 2200 CET) on Saturday 24 February, then wait for the invitation to play the developers of Gears of War!
