rAge Digital Edition: All the details you need

rAge Digital Edition

rAge Expo is turning 18. And an entirely new experience is coming this year, as rAge comes to life online. The re-imagined rAge Digital Edition is for everyone – no matter where you are. You can now experience rAge from anywhere in South Africa or the world. And you can book your free ticket now.

Don’t forget, we don’t get paid for this. So, please, pop us a little something via PayPal by clicking here.

It’s game on!
From daily prize giveaways to Minecraft build challenges to community spotlights, rAge Digital’s activity schedule is packed with three days of old favourites and exciting new additions.

The Africa Games + Esports Careers Day is a free event focused on educating and exciting Africa’s youth about the global games and esports industry from a career perspective. The World Robot Olympiad will be encouraging South Africa’s brightest young minds to create futuristic tech solutions. The African Cyber Gaming League (ACGL), Ultimate Gaming Championships (UGCZA) and Mettlestate are hosting high-stakes esports tournaments with cash prizes up for grabs.

Did you say virtual Cosplay?
A Virtual Cosplay Contest is being hosted by GES, with Miguel Lima (6 Ways of the Ninja), Maou Ookami (Maoukami Cosplay) and Cynthia Brown (Sin Bin) judging three categories: Pop Culture, Gaming and Anime/Manga. Judging will take place on Google Teams and the finals will be live streamed on the rAge streaming platforms (YouTube, Twitch and Facebook) on Sunday. Prizes will be awarded for best Solo, Group, Skit, Construction, Representation and finally, Master.

Live Streaming
The rAge Streamer Zone is back after its debut at last year’s rAge Expo and will run over the course of the rAge weekend with a diverse line-up of South African streamers participating. And during the month leading up to rAge, ChaniZA, Samplayze and Haylstorm will be streaming via the rAge Twitch channel.

What’s more, some of SA’s well-known industry personalities will be showcasing video content during the rAge Digital weekend. The line-up includes:

  • Gaming, hosted by Grant Hinds
  • Esports, hosted by Sam Wright
  • Mobile gaming, hosted by Regardt van der Berg
  • Hardware & Technology, hosted by Neo Sibeko

Take the prize!
Fans will be challenged to complete 18 ‘bingo’ tasks (to celebrate rAge turning 18 of course!) on the BNG-0 MissionCard™ by rAge Systems, Inc. There are six winners per day so a total of 18 lucky participants can each win a cool prize.

There are also 30 exclusive rAge Loot Boxes up for grabs, so keep an eye on the rAge socials in the next few weeks for more details on where and how you can secure one.
