Last night, the The New York Videogame Critics Circle held their 4th Annual game awards where Wolfenstein: The New Order won of Game of the Year! To add to the excitement, the East Coast was greeted with a pretty massive snowstorm which made it pretty difficult for Pete Hines to get to NYC to make an acceptance speech. So that left only one option.
Update: Pete’s panel is complete. Tune back to the official PAX Twitch page tomorrow at 9am for the encore stream.
Put the soccer ball down and tune into Twitch.TV/PAX. It’s time to watch Pete Hines present his storytime keynote for PAX Australia. If you miss tonight’s live airing (7:30 pm edt), you can tune in for an encore at 9 am edt tomorrow.
G’day everyone, we have exciting news for Bethesda fans Down Under! This year we will be participating in PAX Aus for the first time — bringing BATTLECRY, our Austin-flavored multiplayer action game from the dev team at BattleCry Studios.
Alongside being able to play the game on the show floor, members of team — Executive Producer Rich Vogel, Design Director Lucas Davis, Senior Systems Designer Mark Tucker, and Community Manager Shahin Kanafchian — will take the stage for a panel entitled ‘BATTLECRY: Welcome to the WarZone’ on Saturday, November 1st at 2 pm local time. They’ll be on stage to discuss the ins and outs of their new game and look forward to debating the world’s best BBQ. And with tech/gaming guru Rae Johnston presiding over the panel as moderator, it’s sure to be entertaining.
In addition to BATTLECRY’s presence, you won’t want to miss Pete Hines’ “storytime keynote” address opening the show. Pete, Rich Vogel, and Lucas Davis will also be sitting on other PAX Aus panels throughout the weekend. More details to come!
PAX AUS runs from October 31st thru November 2nd. For more information on PAX Aus, visit the event website and be on the lookout for new updates on Bethesda Blog, as well as our BATTLECRY Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Since our first trip to Seattle back in 2008, the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) has been a favorite event for many of us — especially Pete Hines. Be it Boston or Seattle, Pete’s always looked forward to showing off our games, participating in panels, and finding some spare time to play MtG at the show’s tabletop area.
Lucky for Pete, he gets an extra taste of PAX in 2014. At the tail end of our launch week for The Evil Within, Pete will be provide the ‘storytime’ keynote for PAX Australia. It’s sure to be amazing. You can always call on Pete for an entertaining story from his 15+ years with Bethesda — one that started with Morrowind in ’99.
PAX Australia takes place in Melbourne between October 31st and November 2nd. If you can make it, be sure to say hello to Pete.
