Yes, you read that right. Alienware Arena will be invading PAX Prime in Seattle from August 26-28. This is your chance to immerse yourself in new and unreleased content from top gaming publishers exclusively on sixteen blistering fast Alienware M17x laptops. If you’ll be in Seattle during the event you’ve got no excuse. Be there. Seriously.
For the unfamiliar, PAX Prime is among the world’s most amazing gaming festivals on the planet. For three days, Seattle plays host to video gamers, tabletop gamers, and gaming geeks of all persuasions as they meet with developers, publishers, and each other to revel in all things gaming. For Alienware, it’s a unique chance to meet with gamers from around the globe face to face to showcase the latest and greatest in PC gaming technology and interact with our customers.
What you’ll miss if you don’t go:
Alienware will be the only booth showing the PC game on the exhibitor floor, so there is only one place to be for hands-on time with this upcoming blockbuster title. Be one of the lucky few to compete in an 8v8 Team Deathmatch for a chance to win exclusive Alienware swag. Whether you win or lose, I promise you’ll have some bragging rights and tons of fun!
