GTA @ TDU with XBOs
Posted on January 18, 2015
Say what? Well, in short, Game Truck Australia will be attending its biggest event yet, the Santos Tour Down Under, this week! This is fantastic news, as the TDU is arguably the biggest single event in Adelaide, and it will be great to be a part of it. There are some family days that the Game Truck will be attending, and there is an additional surprise in store.
The first day for us will be the BUPA Stage Four, Friday the 23rd of January, 2015, which is not only the finish location for the professional riders but is also for the thousands of amateur riders competing in the BUPA Challenge Tour. This is a great opportunity for the public to ride the same course as the pros. The event will take place in Mount Barker, and there is a festival atmosphere and family activities planned where the Game Truck will be available for kids of all ages to enjoy.
Also, we will be involved in the Be Safe Be Seen MAC Stage 6 in the city on Sunday the 25th of January. More specifically, we’ll be at the Family Day at Elder Park from 9am to 4pm, along with a number of other offerings include our old mate Fork on the Road and a whole bunch of other fun family activities. Both of these days will be completely free of charge in the truck, though we may have some time limitations depending on demand for the consoles.
The most exciting thing is that the Game Truck won’t just be running the usual Xbox 360s; this time, thanks to the good folks at Microsoft, we will have the new-generation Xbox One for the event. Microsoft have provided copies of FIFA 15 and Forza 5 (soccer and car racing, for the uninitiated) for the events. This is obviously a fantastic opportunity to see what comes with the next level of gaming: from playing my own console I know it means very impressive graphics and gameplay possibilities, so I can’t wait to share this with those who come along to visit the Truck at the Tour Down Under.
