Yes, the Electronics & Gaming Expo – or EGE – will be back this July and the good news is that there will again be zombies alongside the humans. Details of our – and Orena‘s – plans will be released over the coming few months, but if you know us, we think you might know what to expect. And if you think we’re all resting on our laurels, think again. Expect more, bigger and better.
In the meanwhile, book 29 to 31 July 2016 in your diary now, or even grab your day and weekend passes this Friday via Computicket. Initial day passes will cost R80 until 31 March, at which point a day pass will cost R100. Weekend passes will be R250.
Alongside that, there will be a 400-seater EGE LAN which Orena will operate (please note this is not the tournament space, but a social LAN with some mini-copetitions), and tickets for that will cost R400 and go on sale also this Friday.
