There is something fantastical about the E3 experience - companies finally allow gamers and industry members alike first time peaks behind the curtains by announcing new projects, displaying never before seen game footage, and even offering the chance to take new titles for a test drive. ChangYou wanted to make its E3 debut memorable and offer gamers, industry members, and especially loyal fans a chance to meet and greet the faces behind the closed doors of the ChangYou(US) offices. For those who couldn't make it in person, ChangYou provided a live E3 webcam so ChangYou fans, and a certain Zentia Community Manager, could take part in all the excitement of our E3 experience from anywhere in the world.
The weeks leading up to E3 can only be described as hectic - Everyone rushing around, working hard, and trying to make sure that everything will be just right for the big event. Throughout the office, talk of comics, landing pages, and hungry immortal sheep could be heard. You may be asking yourself what these three things could possibly have in common? The answer is simple…
Hundreds of sparkling lights, comfy bean bag chairs, game industry personalities, and even an entrancing martial arts performance created the perfect backdrop for the unveiling of the newest addition to the ChangYou family. During E3, we were proud to announce Zentia, our newest free to play MMORPG. Zentia features a humorous comic book style in 3D, unique characters, and a unique social leveling feature that requires the entire community to work together to open higher level game content. More on Zentia later. For now we will stick with the top three highlights of the ChangYou booth at E3.
Dream World Cirque. These amazing women created a show to remember using dance, martial arts, and acrobatics, making for an exciting and mesmerizing booth experience.
Hot For Words star Marina Orlova’s autograph signing. The beautiful Marina represented ChangYou in a sexy Dragon Oath Cosplay outfit. If you haven’t already, you should check out her video where she talks about Dragon Oath and the word ‘Newbie’.
The IPad giveaway. What would you do to get your hands on an iPad? Well, hopefully after this event, the two hardcore fans featured below will still have their hands. This year at E3, ChangYou gave chill lounge visitors the chance to win an iPad by simply sporting one of the stylish ChangYou bracelets. Some people took this offer to the next level.
E3 was a lot of fun this year, and we thank everyone who was a part of creating such a memorable experience, even if you were just tuning in from home! Stay tuned for more news on Zentia and how to get in on the closed beta which begins July 8th at 4pm PST.
Keep on gaming,
Zentia Community Manager
