I know what you’re thinking: 2020 really needed another digital gaming convention! Enter Razer, which has today announced RazerCon 2020, a “full-day digital event” hosted in Singapore on October 10th but of course streamed everywhere because the pandemic is still a major problem. In addition to hardware demos, expect gaming content showcases from Perfect World Entertainment, Paradox Interactive, and Romero Games. Oh yeah, and did we mention the lightshow? There’s a lightshow.
“RazerCon attendees will be in for an audio-visual treat in the first-ever livestreamed event powered by Razer Chroma RGB lighting (patent pending), a proprietary RGB lighting technology system that features 16.8 million colors to create endless animated lighting effects. Viewers around the world are encouraged to turn on their Razer hardware during the show and watch their Razer Chroma-enabled devices sync and dance to world-class performances from top EDM artists, and heavy metal band Sabaton as well as Herman Li from DragonForce, all of which are part of the RazerCon post-event concert.”
Basically, it’s Laser Floyd at the Planetarium! With video games.
“Beyond getting up close with the latest and greatest Razer products as well as new innovations exclusively revealed during the show, viewers will be treated to exclusive previews of upcoming game titles in a true celebration of everything gaming. Game titles include Empire of Sin by Romero Games, with a highlight of the title’s game pillars introduced by the legendary and award-winning game designer, Brenda Romero, a brand-new look at the wild frontier of the upcoming dungeon crawler Torchlight III from Echtra Games and Perfect World Entertainment, as well as a glimpse into the movie adaptation of Mutant Year Zero, directed by Hasraf ‘HaZ’ Dulull. Attendees can also expect content from many other premium partners supporting RazerCon, such as Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Western Digital® WD_BLACK™, ASRock, Paradox Interactive, Perfect World Entertainment, Capcom, and many more.”
