LucasArts confirmed at PAX 2010…
Well after months upon months of some serious hardcore let downs (especially at E3 and Celebration V) , we have another fresh breath of hope.. and that my friends is PAX 2010.
What exactly is PAX:
“PAX is a three-day game festival for tabletop, videogame, and PC gamers. We call it a festival because in addition to dedicated tournaments and freeplay areas we’ve got nerdcore concerts, panel discussions, the weekend-long Omegathon event, and an exhibitor hall filled with booths displaying the latest from top game publishers and developers. Even with all this amazing content the best part of PAX is hanging out with other people who know their shit when it comes to games.”
LucasArts has been confirmed to be at PAX 2010 but what exactly is on their agenda? Hopefully a Battlefront 3 announcement, but as of right now they have been confirmed to be showing a first look on the new Force Unleashed 2 trailer and an exclusive in depth look at The Old Republic.
“Saturday, 5:00 PM – 6:15 PM, Main Theatre
Star Wars Games – REVEALED!
LucasArts and BioWare unite on stage once again to give PAX attendees an exclusive in-depth look at Star Wars: The Old Republic! Don’t miss your chance to be the first to hear and see new details about the MMORPG that everyone is talking about. As an added bonus, attendees will also get an explosive look at a demo of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, the sequel to 2008’s blockbuster best-seller. LucasArts will demonstrate now fugitive Starkiller’s devastating force powers in an exclusive look at this galaxy-altering game. “
Now of course this doesn’t necessarily mean that they won’t be showing anything else but we can always hope! I will definitely keep you updated if I hear anything else on what LucasArts has in store for us at PAX 2010.
PAX 2010 will be held September 3 – 5, 2010 in Seattle, Washington.. I hope everyone has already got their tickets, because they are sold out!
A special thanks to Rainz for sending in his Battlefront 3 Hope email. Keep them coming fans!
“Rainz here with a message concerning all fans of the Battlefront series:
Battlefront 3 has faced some trouble over the past few weeks, with no announcement at E3 or at the Celebration V convention. I’m sure that after the latter, most of you had given up hope, believing our dream game would never see the light of day. However, I advise you not to do so.
With Lucasarts hiring a new President, there’s already been changes made. The Force Unleashed 3 has been cancelled, and no more games will be developed internally at Lucasarts.
And what about this “unnamed project” that has been supposedly put on hold? There’s certainly a high chance that it is Battlefront 3, seeing as there are no more games in the LEGO series, a sequel to Monkey Island has already been announced and is in the works, and Lucidity received such poor reviews from the experts that there is little to no chance a sequel is even being THOUGHT of!
There are many great video game conventions and wards shows out there, I am SURE Battlefront 3 will show up at at least one of them. Don’t forget, P.A.X. 2010 is coming in the next couple of days, so we’d better keep a VERY close eye on it, as wells all the other conventions coming in the future.
Just remember, Star Wars fans, if you believe in it, it will come.”
