Video game company BioWare is once again setting up camp in the prime spot of the Gaslamp Hilton to bring to fans, new and old alike, an off-site look at their upcoming releases!
Last year they had set up a massive Mass Effect 3 station and made dog tags for everyone who waited in line as well as awesome inflatable omni-blades, so I can only imagine what they have instock for us as they prepare to unleash the Grey Wardens of Dragon Age!!!
Here is the official info from their blog. If you stop by, be sure to look for me Saturday night at the Purgatory Bar (points if you get the reference), I’ll be the guy dressed like a broke Kanye West.
BioWare is pleased to be returning to sunny San Diego California for San Diego Comic Con from July 11 through July 15. We have lots of activities going for those with SDCC badges as well as folks who couldn’t get tickets but will be in the area!
The BioWare Base
We will once again have the BioWare Base at the Gaslamp Hilton for all fans to visit (you do not need a badge for entry) with stations to play Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer including the next upcoming multiplayer DLC. Members of the Mass Effect 3 development team & community team will be available to play MP, trade tips, talk BioWare, and sign autographs. Bring your games, novels, etc for signings.
The BioWare Base is open at the following times:
