Insomniac North Carolina Community Day and Escapist Expo

Remember that poster we posted on Instagram a few days back? Well we wanted to give people a heads up on where to get it, along with some local east coast love.


At Insomniac, we pride ourselves on being open and having a two-way conversation with our community. Most recently, we have been listening and making changes to Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus based on feedback and discussion over the past year. Because of this and, well, just because we love you, we are producing a Community Day event to celebrate YOU! For the first time, the event will take place on the east coast in Durham, North Carolina. Community Day will be open to fans of all ages and will showcase Into the Nexus and the Ratchet & Clank franchise. Hear directly from our North Carolina team, ask questions to Ratchet veterans, and play the game before it comes out (well a small part of it anyway)! Also, did we mention barbecue? What would be a North Carolina Community Day without some good ol’ fashion NC-style barbecue. So come, join us Thursday, October 24, 2013 at the Durham Armory. Doors will open at 5:30pm and the event will run from 6:00pm to 9:00pm EDT. Please visit our event page here and get your tickets. Tickets are free, but will be limited to 200 total. First come, first serve! Everyone who comes will get at least a poster and have a chance to meet the dev team. Please note that a ticket is required for each person and the “purchaser” of the ticket must be present with a photo ID. Children will also be required to have a ticket and must be accompanied by someone with a photo ID.

If you can’t make it to Community Day and are planning on attending the Escapist Expo this year (also in Durham), you are in luck! Into the Nexus will be playable on the show floor Friday, October 4th through Sunday, October 6th. We will be showing off our demo from Gamescom and PAX, as well as, giving away posters to anyone who plays (while supplies last). So swing on by the Insomniac Games booth at the Durham Convention center. More Escapist Expo details here.

If you are in or around North Carolina (or just want to make the trek) we hope to see you at one of these two events.

Peace, love, barbecue, and of course… Ratchet & Clank!
