Duesseldorf/Germany, September 8, 2020 – Game fans across the globe can soon take part in another major digital event: From September 12 to September 20, 2020 they will be able to discover an exciting 24 hour non-stop video game happening at EGX Digital x PAX Online!
astragon Entertainment will also be part of the EGX Digital x PAX Online digital showfloor, where the German publisher will present three games that already won the hearts and minds of visitors at gamescom 2020: Bus Simulator 21, Liftoff: Drone Racing and Drone Swarm.
Bus Simulator 21
Bus Simulator 21 for PC, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One invites players to explore the streets and highways of a vibrant US metropolis inspired by the San Francisco Bay Area on a new, extensive map called Angel Shores. Here, they will not only encounter vehicles of brand-new license partners such as double-decker bus specialist Alexander Dennis, but also discover new game features, various new management options as well as a future key topic of public transportation: electromobility.
Liftoff: Drone Racing
Liftoff: Drone Racing for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One introduces players to a new fast-paced trend: professional drone racing! After mastering the basics of controlling the agile flying devices in first flight attempts, players can start out on their drone racing career and climb up the ranks from backyard amateur to professional drone pilot by winning a great variety of exciting races. Of course, they will be able to configure their drones to their liking with original parts by well-known drone brands.
SciFi fans can be looking forward to taking a closer look at the space strategy game Drone Swarm for PC by stillalive studios. In the role of Captain Carter, they will take control of the mothership Argo and its gigantic – and very versatile – swarm of 32,000 drones. As humanity’s last hope, they will go on a dangerous search for a new home planet and encounter other space faring alien races.
