Thrustmaster Doubles Its Presence at Pax East For 2019

Fans will experience 8 sim gaming stations featuring 7 software titles, virtual reality, and thousands of prizes and giveaways


BOSTON, MASS, March 27, 2019 — Doubling its size due to fan demand, flight and racing sim hardware designer Thrustmaster have announced details about their 2019 booth for PAX East. Last year, lines snaked around their booth including repeated visits from devoted racing sim fans, all of which lead to this year’s greatly increased presence.


Currently on display in booth 13100 at the East Coast’s largest annual gaming convention, Thrustmaster is featuring eight demo stations, each with its own unique hardware layout. Every gamer who tries out a game will leave with a goodie in hand, and those who perform well will be rewarded with even greater prizes, including branded sunglasses, games, and 7.1 HD Virtual Surround Sound gaming headsets.


The highlight of the booth is expected to be the flight cockpits, which will feature Bandai Namco’s Ace Combat 7 on the PSVR and Thrustmaster’s officially licensed T.Flight Hotas 4 Ace Combat 7 Limited Edition. For more serious flight sim enthusiasts, there will also be desktop set-ups featuring the Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog, TPR pedals and Oculus Rift running DCS (Digital Combat Simulator), the combat flight sim genre’s leading PC title.


On the racing side, Thrustmaster will be offering the fastest attendees at the show an opportunity to win product prizes just by placing within the daily Top 5 laptimes on GT Sport. Last year it was a fan favorite tournament that saw repeated attempts from participants furiously competing for a spot on the leaderboard. Less competitive racers will have a chance to try other racing titles including Dirt Rally 2.0, Nascar Heat 3, F1 2018, and Forza Horizon 4.


“We know we make a huge impact on PAX East attendees each year with one of the busiest medium-sized booths and the most goodies and prizes of any exhibitor,” said Tim Gorham, US Marketing Manager for Thrustmaster. “Most of these gamers don’t get a chance to play on high-end sim hardware every day, so we want to make their event experience as unique as possible!”
