Penny Arcade Expo (2007)
What is PAX?
The Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) is an annual gaming show that is held in or around Seattle, Washington, each summer. The show is hosted by the creators of the popular online comic, Penny Arcade, who are also responsible for Child's Play, a charitable endeavor that started locally (Seattle) and has now become a global initiative that calls for the support of gamers in helping needy and sick children in many countries around the world. (Child's Play has, so far, gathered and distributed more than $1,000,000 in cash and items.)
What is ArenaNet's Role in PAX?
ArenaNet has attended PAX for many years. Starting with a small booth in 2004, before the launch of the first Guild Wars campaign, the studio also took part in 2005 and 2006, and is now esteemed as one of the keystones of the show.
What's on Board for 2007?
Find out more about ArenaNet's plans for 2007 on the official website. The ArenaNet Community Team will be hosting a SuperFan contest similar to the one held in 2006, prior to the release of Guild Wars Nightfall. Players will be offered the chance to score tickets to the private VIP party, to win swag, and to get their mitts on a special key that unlocks the just announced newest in in-game miniatures, the Grawl.
