This past weekend in a subway station in Shanghai, Blizzard Entertainment partnered with
NetEase to create a real life interactive version of their dark portal from the recently released expansion
World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor.
The interactive digital signage used a two way camera where passer-bys could see characters
from the recently released expansion as well being placed into the portal itself. It’s truly a sight to
behold watching subway-goers shooting fireballs alongside their favourite MMO characters. This is a
prime example of how a video game company can use digital signage as a tool to enthrall potential
customers, while garnering world-wide attention through advertising.
This advertisement is part of a worldwide campaign that saw Blizzard placing a larger than life
axe through a NYC cab in Time Square as well as completely transforming a Mcdonald’s in china into a
World of Warcraft themed restaurant.
Canada will gather this week to celebrate its world-class video game developers at the 5th Annual Canadian Videogame Awards ceremony to take place in Toronto, Ontario on November 21, 2014. The Canadian Videogame Awards will be held at the beautiful Carlu in the heart of downtown Toronto.
As the third largest developer of video games in the world, this show celebrates Canada’s spot on the world stage as a leader in interactive entertainment. The CVAs have always been designed to be “by the industry and for the industry” with an interest in engaging public and fan participation.
The 2014 show will include games developed in Canada and released in 2013 and 2014. The awards will be awarded separately, based on nomination year, in one ceremony. Award nominations for 2013 have already closed and the adjudication process will continue as planned. Nomination details for 2014 will be announced in June.
The Canadian Videogame Awards are produced by Reboot Communications and Greedy Productions, and are officially endorsed by DigiBC, Interactive Ontario and the Entertainment Software Association of Canada. The producers are joined by a national industry committee of developers and leaders of the Canadian digital entertainment industry.
