IP e-Games all set for Domination IV, its biggest online gaming event yet
Carnival and Fiesta thrills, more than 300 top-of-the-line PCs, and the biggest online gaming tournaments and prizes for IP e-Games’ annual gaming celebration.
IP e-Game Ventures Inc., (IP e-Games; PSE Ticker Symbol: EG) the online gaming subsidiary of publicly listed technology and communications company, IPVG Corp (PSE: IP), is all set for Domination IV, IP e-Games’ annual gaming event and anniversary celebration.
Domination is considered the biggest single-day gaming event since 2008. Domination II and Domination III, held at the SMX Convention Center near SM Mall of Asia, have been drawing record crowds. Domination II had a record attendance with more than 15,000 gamers while Domination 3 held last April 2009, had close to 21,000 people.
This year, Domination IV, which will be held on April 10 at the same venue, will even be bigger and will have that distinct Filipino Festive and Carnival environment.
Gil Edeza, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of IP e-Games says that this year’s Domination will be entirely different. “We are going to bring the Carnival and Fiesta thrills especially with our offline events and activities.”
Domination IV will have more than 300 top-of-the-line PCs available for freeplay and tournaments, the most exciting online game tournaments and prizes, and the hottest musical and celebrity performances. “Domination IV will continue to break single-day gaming attendances,” Edeza adds.
Domination IV Highlights
Domination IV will have dedicated gaming areas for each e-Games title, such as RAN Online, CABAL Online, Runes of Magic, Granado Espada, and Dragonica. X-Play Online Games Inc. (X-Play), the casual games division of IP e-Games, will also have individual gaming areas for Audition Dance Battle, OP7 and Band Master. Each gaming area will have its own online game tournaments with hundreds of thousands of pesos in cash prizes and in-game items to be given away.
Domination IV will also be the launch pad for the commercial release of Dragonica and Band Master.
Dragonica is IP e-Games’ newest online adventure game. With Role-Playing Game (RPG) elements and an 8-way, side-scrolling system in full 3D, Dragonica’s gameplay is fun, intuitive and offers gameplay elements to satisfy both novice and hardcore gamers.
X-Play’s music rhythm game Band Master, developed by Yedang Online, has gameplay similar to popular music band games wherein gamers will get to play in a concert-like atmosphere. However, Band Master presents a brand new concept in online games where players can play up to 6 different instruments with other players. What’s also unique about Band Master is it allows for actual garage or indie band setups and a unique social networking opportunity. Band Master also provides better online community integrations.
X-Play will also unveil Superstar Online, the country’s first online videoke.
George Royeca, COO for X-Play, says that Domination IV will be an awesome day for casual gamers. “We’ve prepared a whole day of incredible activities for our Audition players, OP7 gamers, and our new Band Master fans. And that’s not the end of it, gamers will get to sample the first online videoke in the country and I’m sure that it’ll be one of the huge hits at Domination IV.”
