NAG Magazine, the brains behind rAge (the Really Awesome Gaming Expo), has announced that tickets to the 11th annual NAG LAN @ rAge will go on sale at 09:00 on 31 August 2013. A NAG LAN ticket will set you back R400.
Tickets will only be on sale online at www.itickets.co.za. There will be no tickets available to purchase at any physical outlet and sales will be limited to a maximum of 2 tickets per person.
NAG LAN tickets sell out incredibly fast, and there’s no reason to believe this year will be any different, so LAN gamers keen on the event had best get their early. While numbers haven’t been confirmed for 2013, it’s safe to bank on similar numbers as in 2012 – just over 2,000 LAN tickets available.
“As everyone knows, in life nothing works this well and grows to this kind of madness, with this much status and prestige just by itself,” said Michael James, Editor and Publisher of NAG Magazine. “The NAG LAN servers are powered by the mighty Intel, and connecting all these kilometres of networking cables are HP switches. The whole crazy weekend LAN is sponsored by Corex who bravely put their name on the gaming experience of the year. Without these companies there is no LAN. Go on, show them the love.”
rAge 2013 will take place on the weekend of 4 October – 6 October, starting on Friday and running through to the Sunday. Day passes will be R70 per person, with full weekend tickets priced at R120 per person. Tickets to the NAG LAN will set you back R400.
The event will take place at the usual spot – the Coca-Cola Dome, Northgate Shopping Centre, Johannesburg.
rAge 2013 will showcase computer and console gaming hardware, PC, PlayStation, Xbox 360 and Nintendo games, gaming accessories from joysticks to headphones, comic books, figurines, anime, role-playing, cosplay, board games, creative arts, competitive collectible card games, local game developers and much more.
