PlayStation is coming to PAX Aus this month, and now Sony has announced more of its plans for the show, including a list of playable games on the show floor.
Sony’s booth at PAX Aus will contain 40 stations, and among the playable games are upcoming high-profile games like Capcom’s new Resident Evil 2, Bloodorne studio FromSoftware’s new Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and the game-making game Dreams from LittleBigPlanet studio Media Molecule. Also playable on the show floor will be Spyro: Reignited Trilogy, as well as the previously released PS4 exclusive Spider-Man.
There will also be PlayLink titles available in Sony’s booth, including Knowledge Is Power Decades and Chimparty. Additionally, a number of PlayStation VR games will be available, including Blood and Truth, Ace Combat 7, and Beat Saber.
“The global Penny Arcade community is very important to PlayStation and our development community. The fact that we are now entering our fourth year of partnership with PAX Aus with the biggest booth and the most playable opportunities we’ve ever had, is something the team is very excited to bring to our Aussie players,” SIE Australia marketing director Patrick Lagana said in a statement. We will ignite play within everyone visiting our booth, giving players the opportunity to get hands & heads on with some of the best & exclusive games for PS4 and PlayStation VR.”
PAX Aus kicks off on October 26 with a keynote address by Rhianna Pratchett, who worked on the Tomb Raider reboot and its sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider. She also wrote Mirror’s Edge, Heavenly Sword, and the Overlord series. During her PAX Aus keynote, she’ll be engaging directly with fans, answering questions about any number of topics.
GameSpot’s theatre, the GameSpot Dropbear Theatre, will have programming running Friday through Sunday. We’ll be hosting panels on Fortnite’s coverage in the mainstream media, voice acting featuring actors from Telltale’s The Walking Dead and Fallout 4, and hacking a video game, among other topics. You can see the full programming lineup for the GameSpot Dropbear Theatre here, while a full list of every PAX Aus panel can be seen here.
In addition to the panels, PAX Aus will include a show floor featuring juggernauts like Xbox, PlayStation, Ubisoft, Nintendo, and Bandai Namco. A list of playable games hasn’t been announced yet, however. Also new for this year is that PAX Aus and another big-time Australian gaming show, the EB Expo, are joining forces.
PAX Aus three-day tickets are sold out, but you can still buy single-day tickets for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday here on the event’s website.
