We’re a day away from the madness that is PAX East 2014 and we want to make sure our community of 2K fans have the best plan of attack when the doors swing open on Friday. Let’s go over the details of our epic booth, announcements, panels, the store, and more!
The second you hit the floor, calmly speed your way over to Booth #948 and #962. You should easily spot the booth from afar if you look up and see the 20ft Goliath statue for our Evolve booth! Now what to do first?
If you’ve been anxious to finally get your hands on the next generation of multiplayer shooters, now is the time! Get in line for the Evolve theatre showing off some highlights of the 4v1 gameplay. After the demo is over, grab a controller and be the monster or choose one of the Hunter classes.
If you’re a Borderlands fan, get in line at the Moon theatre – you’ll know where it is when you spot the giant Hyperion space station hanging above it – and get a first look at the recently announced Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. While in line, folks from 2K will have Borderlands 2 on the PS Vita handheld for you to try out. Don’t forget to also get your photo taken with the megalomaniacal tyrant that we all love to hate, Handsome Jack.
After the demo is over, we’ll introduce you to the Loot Pass Sweepstakes where you’ll receive a Loot Pass booklet with missions for you to complete. Completing the missions will earn you some badass Borderlands swag and a chance to win a limited edition Butt Stallion Statue!
Loot Pass Missions
- Watch the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel demo in the Moon theatre (Booth #962)
- Take a photo with the Handsome Jack statue (Booth #962)
- Visit the NVIDIA booth and play the Borderlands 2 Headhunter 5: Son of Crawmerax DLC (Booth #924)
Last but not least, the 2K Store will be on hand with exclusive PAX East 2014 apparel and accessories from Borderlands, Civilization, BioShock, Evolve, XCOM, and WWE – many never seen before.
Both Borderlands: The Pre-sequel and Evolve will be available to pre-order at the booth. Folks who pre-order Evolve will receive a PAX exclusive Evolve beanie, and folks who pre-order Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will receive a PAX exclusive Pre-Sequel t-shirt.
On Saturday, you won’t want to miss Firaxis Games announce their next big AAA title, so get in line early for the Firaxis Games Mega Panel. The panel starts at 11:30 am at the DragonFly Theatre.
Saturday night, we’ll be hosting a Community Party where you can mix and mingle with developers from Firaxis and Gearbox. The invites are first come, first served and you must be 21 and over to attend. Come by the booth and ask a 2K representative on how to score one.
It’s Gearbox’s turn on Sunday with their Inside Gearbox Software panel in the Main Theatre at 10:30am. With the announcement of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, you know you’ll be getting all the first hand details right from the developers themselves!
Those are all the big highlights folks. Make sure to follow @2K on Twitter for the latest news straight from the show floor, and join the conversation at #2KPAXEast. You can also follow @Borderlands, @EvolveGame, @CivGame, and @XCOM for the latest news on those franchises. We hope to see you at the show!
