As convention season approaches, BioWare has begun to release more information on upcoming events. Today, the company unveiled more information on their upcoming PAX East appearance.
Quote from David Bass
It's time for the beginning of the 2012 convention season, which kicks off with PAX East in Boston next week. Since this is our first major convention post-launch, we wanted to share with you some of our plans for the event.
We'll be bringing Game Update 1.2 with us to the show, so for those of you who have been unable to check it out on the Public Test Server, this will be a great opportunity to see the new customizable User Interface, Legacy, and more.
We're premiering our Community Lounge for the first time this year, an area of the booth for players of The Old Republic to hang out and socialize with developers, other players, and the Community team throughout the weekend. Stop by our registration desk, grab a name badge, and meet your fellow Republic and Empire fans!
New Warzone: Novare Coast
We'll have a signup sheet for anyone who comes by and wants to put a team together to face off in the new Novare Coast Warzone. Prizes await the winners!
Exclusive In-Game Mini-Pet: Tauntaun Fawn
For the first time ever, fans who visit our booth will be able to pick up a code redeemable for a tauntaun mini-pet in-game. These special black and white tauntauns are only available by coming to one of our events, so check out the Events page for more information about where we'll be this year.
Community Meet & Greet
As always, we'll be having an after-hours meet up for Star Wars fans on Saturday night (April 7th). The location is still TBD, and we'll post with more information when we have it.
MMORPG.com panel: The Future of Online Gaming
James Ohlen, Game Director, will be appearing on MMORPG.com's panel on Friday evening at 6PM in the Main Theater, to discuss where the MMO genre is heading in the next ten years. Attendees will be able to ask questions directly to the panelists, so come prepared!
We're really excited for this first opportunity to spend time with players of the game in-person, and we can't wait to see you in Boston!
As always, you can expect Darth Hater to be there bringing the news coming out of the event. Keep an eye out for our official round up post coming on the day before the event.
