Play The Division 2 Before It Launches At PAX Aus This Month
Here's what Ubisoft has on tap for PAX Aus.
Ubisoft is one of the big-time publishers coming to PAX Aus next week in Melbourne, and today the company announced its lineup for the show. Ubisoft's booth on the show floor (stand #1620 if you're looking for it) will feature 48 game stations where attendees can play the recently released Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, as well as a number of exciting upcoming games.
The Division 2, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Trials Rising, and Just Dance 2019 will be playable at Ubisoft's booth, while the VR arcade shooter Space Junkies will be available at the PAX Arena on Saturday.
Ubisoft is also hosting a "Ubisoft Showcase" event at the EB Live Arena on Friday, 26 October at 5 PM AEDT. During this event, Ubisoft will provide an "in-depth" presentation for The Division 2 and Trials Rising. Ubisoft will also have a merch store featuring items from the Assassin's Creed, Rainbow Six, and The Division franchises.
Another Ubisoft-related event happening at PAX Aus this year is the 2018 Six Masters event taking place on the ESL Stage where Rainbow Six Siege players will compete for a share of $25,000. This event takes place on 27 October, and you can stream it live on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook.
PAX Aus kicks off on October 26 with a keynote address by Rhianna Pratchett, who worked on the Tomb Raider reboot and its sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider. She also wrote Mirror's Edge, Heavenly Sword, and the Overlord series. During her PAX Aus keynote, she'll be engaging directly with fans, answering questions about any number of topics.
GameSpot's theatre, the GameSpot Dropbear Theatre, will have programming running Friday through Sunday. We'll be hosting panels on Fortnite's coverage in the mainstream media, voice acting featuring actors from Telltale's The Walking Dead and Fallout 4, and hacking a video game, among other topics. You can see the full programming lineup for the GameSpot Dropbear Theatre here, while a full list of every PAX Aus panel can be seen here.
Also new for this year is that PAX Aus and another big-time Australian gaming show, the EB Expo, are joining forces. PAX Aus three-day tickets are sold out, but you can still buy single-day tickets for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday here on the event's website.
