Rooster Teeth Expo brings playable Halo 4 to Austin

2:00 PM on 06.19.2012

Though PAX South may be a pipe dream, internet sensation Rooster Teeth (Red vs. Blue) are offering Southern gentlemen and ladies the next best thing with Rooster Teeth Expo (RTX), coming to Austin, Texas July 7-8.

For this public debut, RTX is bringing the first public multiplayer demo of Halo 4, indie dev exhibitors (Twisted Pixel, Robot Entertainment), and panels featuring Mega64 and other internet icons. And, of course all the main Rooster Teeth guys will be in attendance.

Every year PAX is becoming bigger and bigger, so RTX may be exactly what the gaming community needs: A toned-down expo with big games that still manages to focus on community. With an amazing venue (Austin Convention Center; also used for SXSW), solid line-up, and affordable weekend pass, RTX could potentially be the next big gaming expo.

I'll be there along with some Austin Dtoid community members, so leave a comment below if you plan on going. We'll organize a meet-up if enough of you reply. Tickets are currently on sale but only until June 22nd, so get on that while you still can.
