Firaxicon Announced for October 3rd

Firaxicon 2015Two years public and running.

If you’re a fan of Firaxis Games, you’re certainly familiar with the “Just One More Turn” phenomenon, in which players who decide to finish one more round of games like Civilization and XCOM won’t think that thought again until a few hours later. Now is the time to meet the makers in person.

Firaxicon, an convention held for the first time last year, will be returning for a second time. Set for October 3rd, according to a press release today, the convention will occur in Maryland’s Baltimore Convention Center. Also, unlike E3 which only admits professionals relating to the video game industry, this event is open to the public.

Anyone who attends will be welcome to sit in on multiple panels about the upcoming Civilization: Beyond Earth expansion Rising Tide and XCOM 2, hopefully with more gameplay footage. In addition, the legendary Sid Meier will personally make some announcements.

Firaxicon tickets are now on sale for $40.
