rAge 2018 is only, like, two weeks away or something. ARE YOU READY? ‘Cause Apex Interactive is ready. They’re bringing some Shnazzy Stuff to the show. If you wanna know exactly what that Shnazzy Stuff is, follow us below.
First up (and this is a biggie, because the previous two Darksiders games are awesome), Apex will have playable demo code of Darksiders 3 (i.e. the game with the R7,499 collector’s edition) available for anyone to try, specifically on the Trust Gaming stand.
Apparently it’s the same demo that was available to play at Gamescom, so that’s pretty yummy. There’ll be four PCs running the game, all bling’d up with Trust Gaming gear (so you can get a feel for that too) – so if you’re as keen for more Darksiders as we are, you know where to go.
Apex is also joining forces with Core Group and Nintendo South Africa to show off Super Mario Party, which is launching on the Friday of rAge (aka 5 October). Apex and Nintendo will have a bunch of Switches (along with PDP accessories) available to fiddle with at the PDP stand. Word on the street says that the Mario and Luigi mascots from the Nintendo pop-up stores will also make an appearance at the show to do some sweet, sweet giveaways.
Then there’s Fortnite, which’ll be available for visitors to play – with the added bonus of the game being powered by a smorgasbord of super-fancy Razer peripherals. If you’re looking for a new mouse/keyboard/headset/whatever and you’re keen to see what Razer’s got to offer, this is the perfect way to test some of ’em out. The peripherals that’ll be available to test include the Razer Raiju PS4 controller, the Razer Huntsman Elite Opto-Mechanical keyboard, the BlackWidow Elite tournament-grade keyboard, and the Razer Kraken Tournament Edition headset.
Finally, Apex will have an Xbox One running PUBG all weekend, to showcase the recently launched Turtle Beach Recon 200 headset. Apex will also be giving out prizes throughout rAge weekend to anyone who manages to bag themselves one of them elusive chicken dinners. NOICE.
rAge is happening from 5 to 7 October at the Ticketpro Dome in Jo’burg. Day passes are R150 each, a weekend pass is R300, and entrance is free for kids under six years old.
