NCsoft Announces Summer Trade Show and Event Plans
AUSTIN, Texas, July 2, 2008—Fans of Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) games will get a first-hand look at some of the leading online games on the market this summer as NCsoft® makes appearances at some of the top entertainment consumer and trade shows in both Europe and North America.
At Comic Con International in San Diego, July 23-27, the NCsoft booth (#5209) will feature game stations set up for attendees to play the comic book inspired City of Heroes®, as well as other NCsoft games, Richard Garriott’s Tabula Rasa® and Exteel™. In addition to other activities, City of Heroes fanzine artist, Dave Hamann, will be on hand to draw City of Heroes’ character sketches for players.
A few days later, the spotlight will move to Brighton, England, where NCsoft Europe will open its doors to the media, presenting its highly anticipated fantasy MMO Aion®: The Tower of Eternity™ to select members of the press. Showing July 29-31, this will be the first time for western journalists to see Aion since the summer of 2007.
August 20-24, Aion will be on display once again at one of the world’s largest computer and video games events, the Games Convention (GC) in Leipzig, Germany. Situated in Hall 3, Booth B20, the NCsoft booth will be the destination where consumers get to try the game out for themselves at several demo kiosks. Press will be invited to attend presentations of Aion at the Flashpoint booth, within the Media Centre (Booth J50).
Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) is the final stop for the NCsoft summer tour in Seattle, August 29-31. PAX continues to grow larger by the year and NCsoft will have a booth (#642) where attendees will have a chance to play Aion, as well as Exteel, Dungeon Runners™, City of Heroes, Guild Wars® and Richard Garriott’s Tabula Rasa®. Guild Wars’ fans will be treated to a special player tournament while Exteel and Dungeon Runners’ teams will conduct play sessions in the PAX special LAN area. Additionally there will be speaking sessions in the convention center’s auditorium where fans can learn more about NCsoft games.
