Defense Grid 2, the sequel to the 2008 tower defense critical hit, will be playable on Xbox One for the first time at PAX East in Boston later this month. The game will also be playable for PC players to experience at the show. Representatives from developer Hidden Path Entertainment will be on hand to demo a single-player map from the game at the 505 Games booth (#396), giving attendees a taste of the new standard in tower defense.
Orcs Must Die!™ will be playable on PC and Xbox360 at the Robot Entertainment booth (Booth 940) during the 2011 PAX Prime Convention, which runs from August 26th to 28th in Seattle, Washington. This will be your last chance to get your hands on the game before release, so if you’ve been holding off, now’s the time to give in to your orc bloodlust.
Robot Entertainment will also be bringing plenty of extra surprises with them to the show. By visiting the booth and signing up for the Robot Forums, you can earn a free Steam code for an in-game War Mage costume based on the popular Penny Arcade character, the Cardboard Tube Samurai. If real world costumes are more to your liking, brand new Orcs Must Die! shirts, hats, and buttons will be available in the booth, along with the classic Orcs Must Die! and Robot Entertainment shirts. Robot Entertainment will also be giving away printed editions of the Orcs Must Die! prequel comic book to the first 200 people to play the game each day of the show.
The last time we saw anything on Trials Evolution, it was E3 and we only got a glipse of the action. Now more information has been released and those of you attending either Gamescom or PAX, will be able to get your hands on it for yourself!
The special preview builds that will be shown are only a taste of the entire offering yet to come.
“This is the biggest game RedLynx has ever done, and one of the most ambitious downloadable console games ever,” said Antti Ilvessuo, Creative Director of RedLynx. “The things that can be done with just the editor will astound long-time fans of the series. I can’t wait to see what the community will be able to create!”
In addition to presenting Trials Evolution at Gamescom, Creative Director Antti Ilvessuo will also appear at the Xbox VIP Community panel on Wednesday, August 17 at 15:30 in the afternoon.
RedLynx is proud to announce that Trials Evolution has partnered with KX energy drink. KX is currently involved with the KX Urban Thrills Tour, an adrenaline-fueled trials bike experience featuring 6 of the UK’s top trials bike riders. More on the KX Urban Thrills Tour can be found on their Facebook page: facebook.com/kxenergy
As part of the sponsorship, gamers will enjoy special KX energy drink themed objects and customizations in the full release of Trials Evolution. RedLynx is very excited to be partnering with a brand that shares the same passion for Trials, as well as the same sense of fun.
All of this is shaping to be very exciting. Here is the E3 trailer.
