rAge 2018: Wanna know what games there’ll be to see and play at this year’s rAge? Here’s a giant list of some of ’em!

We’ll let you in on a little secret: rAge is all about them sweet, sweet video games.

…okay, so maybe that’s the worst-kept of all the secrets, ever, but sometimes we like to pretend that we’re all mysterious and stuff.

This year, rAge is jam-packed with over 30 new and unreleased games for visitors to play, see, touch, feel, and lick throughout the weekend. If you’re curious to see a list of exactly which titles comprise that fat stack of video games we’ll be showing off, there’s a handy press release below the break with all the deets.

rAge 2018 is happening this weekend (5-7 October) at the Ticketpro Dome in Northgate. A day pass will cost you R150, while entry for the entire weekend is R300. WE’LL SEE YOU THERE!
