We're on hand in Las Vegas, Nevada for Sony Online Entertainment's annual gathering, SOE Live. The event is packed with amazing developers, industry professionals and some of the hottest games - not the least of which is PlanetSide 2.
The free to play shooter is hitting SOE Live hard with the Auraxis Showdown, and FPS General has you covered for show floor streaming. We're going to be roaming the floor all weekend long (starting tonight) as the Auraxis Showdown moves through the preliminary rounds to the finals, bringing you as close to the action as you can get without a plane ticket to Las Vegas.
Joining us during the event will be Sony Online Entertainment developers, including the likes of Matt Higby, Creative Director on PlanetSide 2 and Tramell Isaac, Senior Art Director on the game.
Just what is the Auraxis Showdown, you ask?
As SOE describes it, the Auraxis Showdown will let players "take on the challenge for the glory of your empire! All troops will start fresh with standard issue gear and certifications and compete in qualifying rounds on Thursday and Friday. The top eighteen players from the qualifying rounds will compete in an 18-man Finals match on Saturday to win the first place grand prize.
There will also be prizes awarded to the top 9 finalists in the Finals with first, second and third place finalists taking home larger pieces of the total prize." The full schedule can be found here.
