The Gears of War company will hold business and tech meetings on Unreal Engine 3, as well as appointment-only media briefings on the Wednesday and Thursday.

Epic’s also detailed named some of the panels it’ll be involved with, including Tim Sweeney, Cliff Bleszinski, Rod Fergusson, Chair’s Simon Hurley and others.

And as previously announced, studio design director Bleszinski will present the 12th Game Developers Choice Awards on March 7.
