Seattle: Brace yourself!
PAX Prime 2015 kicks off on August 27 and we’ll be there, playing Battleborn with all you fine folks and taking you to cosplay school – among other things.
Here’s a quick list of what you’ll want to do while you’re making your way through the halls and sitting in on panels during this year’s gaming mecca of the Pacific Northwest.
Swing by booth #1214, grab a controller, and play Battleborn. Obviously we’re biased, but Battleborn is one of those titles that you need to experience firsthand to appreciate its fluid and easy-to-pick-up gameplay. You’ll be able to play as 10 of the 25 characters that’ll be available when the game launches next February.
POSE NEXT TO GIANT STATUES!
Think you’re big time? Walk on up to see how you measure compared to a “life”-sized Montana.
If you play Battleborn, you’ll score an exclusive PAX Prime 2015 Battleborn T-shirt. But, there’s lots of hidden loot for fans that come to the booth and want to share their #2KMoments with us. (Follow @2K during the show to learn more about that.)
GO TO THE COSPITAL!
Located outside the main show floor, we’re going to take you Cosplay school. Not only will we have costume-making tutorials live at the show, we’ll have a fully functional Cosplay Repair Station (a Cospital?). After all, there’s nothing worse than a Cosplay wardrobe malfunction mid-show.
ATTEND THE PANELS!
Gearbox Panel: Friday night (4pm – 5pm PT) in the main hall, join panelists from Gearbox Studios who will be on-hand to deliver a behind-the-scenes look at the studio and the latest updates on all things Battleborn and Borderlands. Besides, Gearbox is always good for a couple surprises during their talks.
Firaxis MegaPanel: Saturday afternoon (2pm – 3pm PT) in the Sasquatch Theater, join the strategic masterminds behind XCOM 2 and Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth – Rising Tide. Meet the devs, go behind-the-scenes, and get inside scoops on what they are working on now.
WHAT? YOU’RE NOT GONNA BE HERE?!?!
Hey, we get it. Not everyone can make it. We’re not going to rub it in. In fact, we’re going to get you in on as much of the action as possible. We’ll be showing gameplay of Battleborn from the show floor where YOU can drive the camera on what you want to see.
We’ll be staging contests live at the show – and online – so that you can score some sweet swag of your own.
We’ll have eyes-on-the-ground so that even if you aren’t at the panels, we’ll keep you updated on what’s happening.
Over the next week, keep your eyes plugged into all of 2K’s channels, but especially make sure to follow the Battleborn, XCOM and Civilization updates over this coming weekend.
See you there – and online!
