Stand By for a New Trailer and More Details

Labor Day Weekend is fast approaching, and that means PAX Prime in Seattle will soon open for throngs of fans.

As they did last year, Sega will have an appearance at the big show, through what appear to be two separate booths. One will be dedicated to live playtests of Alien: Isolation for attendees. Playthroughs for both versions of Sonic Boom will also be livestreamed across all four days of PAX via The Next Level.

Complete details are in Sega’s official release published today on their blog, relayed below. We know from it there will be a new trailer released for Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal on the 3DS, which we will relay as soon as it’s made available. We also now know that Boom‘s TV debut has been narrowed down to later in the Fall. We’ll keep bringing you details on the Boom initiative during PAX and throughout the next few months, leading up to its Fall release.

SEGA is heading to 2014 PAX Prime in Seattle with its fall lineup in tow and ready to unleash on all in attendance! Gamers will be given the chance for hands-on demos of Alien: Isolation, Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal creating a unique experience for fans as they get a detailed look at the hottest games of the year.

Coming off the heels of its national debut at San Diego Comic-Con, Alien: Isolation will be showcased in amazing, spine-tingling fashion at Booth #232 with game demos in a custom-designed, giant-sized Alien egg pod. The pod creates a self-contained, fear-inducing, immersive gaming experience for the newest title of the Alien™ franchise. As gamers tremble in fear, the Alien: Isolation booth will have a live on-site stream feeding on-lookers and fans the POV gaming perspective, prepping gamers for the intense experience before they enter one of several gaming stations.

To help extend the demo experience onsite, SEGA will host a “Survive the Demo Competition,” giving gamers the chance to win exclusive limited edition Alien jackets (while supplies last). Alien: Isolation is available worldwide on October 7, 2014 for Xbox One, PlayStation4, Windows PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation3.

When it comes to SEGA’s iconic Blue Blur, Sonic the Hedgehog will be racing into PAX at top speeds in Sonic Boom, a brand-new extension of the Sonic Universe. Touching down at Booth #652, fans will get an exclusive first-look at the brand new multiplayer capabilities of Sonic’s newest adventures Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric. The new games Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for the Wii U system, developed by Los Angeles-based Big Red Button, and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system, from San Francisco-based Sanzaru Games, will introduce two unique and epic adventures as Sonic and team work together to stop the evil villain- Lyric! Play as multiple characters, each with their own abilities, as you explore, fight and speed through an undiscovered land. Each game features its own individual story and gameplay features. As an added extra for Hedgehog fanatics at PAX, SEGA will also preview the newest trailer for Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal. Be sure to tune into Sonic’s first-ever CG-animated television series debuting on Cartoon Network this fall.
