Megarom Interactive (Pty) Ltd., South Africa's leading importer and distributor of interactive video games, today announced it’s line-up for rAge 2011. For the 9 years that rAge has been running, Megarom has shown it's support for the expo by showcasing the latest in gaming year on year.
We have really gone all out this year, securing multiple stands to showcase all of our titles; we will be taking up more stage time to demonstrate some of our upcoming titles and that is not even mentioning our partners at the show who will be demonstrating their products with some of our games. "Be sure to check out Samsung, Comet Computing and AMD stands" says Jason Borea; Marketing Director at Megarom.
This year Megarom will have the biggest line-up of developers and publishers joining the Megarom team. It's always a great pleasure to have the developers in the country to show off the games they've worked so passionately on, and who better to demonstrate the games than the developers themselves. Below is a break down of all the games that Megarom have lined-up for the show.
Tomb Raider / Hitman (Square Enix)
One of this years most talked about games will be available to see exclusively at the show. Tomb Raider has been re-invented from the ground up giving you a Lara that has never been seen before.
"I went in there fairly certain that I knew what to expect, but left the studio with the impression of a game quiet unlike any Tomb Raider I'd ever seen before." - NAG
This will be shown in a mini-cinema that has been set up specially for the private screening of the game.
Also sharing the spotlight is the very recently announced Hitman, we're very excited to present this game at rage as there is only limited information available and we're one of the first regions in the world to get our hands on gameplay, which promises to be equally exhilirating.
Guild Wars 2 (NC-Soft)
Arguably one of the most highly anticipated MMO titles Guild Wars 2 will be demonstrated on the rAge stage with the help of our NC-Soft partners. We'll get to see some incredible innovations in the world of Guild Wars 2 which will most certainly change the way MMO's are played and certainly set a presicdent for future titles.
