The gaming hardware and accessory company Razer is hosting its first event this year, and like many other gaming events in 2020, it will be held as an online-only presentation. RazerCon 2020 will take place on October 10, and the company has promised new announcements, game trailers, giveaways, and more.
Razer is also providing customers with the exclusive promo code GAMESPOT. This code gets you discounts on some of the company’s best headphones: the Razer Opus headphones and Razer Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds. You can learn more about both of these Bluetooth headphone options below.
How To Watch
RazerCon will be streamed across Razer’s social media channels, and the YouTube stream will be available exclusively through GameSpot. Just bookmark this page or subscribe to the GameSpot YouTube channel to follow along when the event begins.
RazerCon 2020 Start Times (October 10)
- 9 AM PT12 PM ET5 PM BST2 AM AEST (October 11)
Razer has partnered with GameSpot as the official media partner for RazerCon 2020. Customers that use the promo code GAMESPOT will get 15% off on the Razer Opus Bluetooth headphones and Razer Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds.
Razer Opus are the company’s THX-certified Bluetooth headphones. It boasts advanced active noise-cancellation technology, leatherette foam ear cushions, and up to 25 hours of battery life with ANC on. Two of its microphones are dedicated to detecting background noise and eliminating it with ANC, while the other two are used for voice chat and phone calls. It also comes with a 3.5mm jack, airplane adapter, and a hard-shell carrying case for easy travel.
True Wireless earbuds are extremely convenient, and the Razer Hammerhead earbuds are among the best of their variety. The Razer Hammerhead features a 60ms of input latency, easy touch controls, and water resistance, which makes them great for running and other activities that might cause the wearer to sweat. The earbuds last for four hours on a single charge, and the included charging case provides an extra 12–up to four full charges.
What To Expect
In the announcement, Razer acknowledged that 2020 has been a tough year all around, especially with limitations to physical events. The company notes that the event will be “an opportunity to celebrate gaming and the Razer community.”
The festivities will begin with a keynote from Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan. From there, we expect to see individual showcases of upcoming games. The event specifically promised we’d see more from Romero Games (Empire of Sin), Perfect World (Torchlight 3), and Paradox Interactive. Razer also promises product managers will be on-tap to show off new Razer goods.
While watching, you’ll be able to enter to win prizes like game beta keys and Razer gear and hardware, including a Razer Blade 15 gaming laptop. A “Grand Raffle” offers a mystery bundle worth $10,000, which includes a new Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080.
The show will wrap up with an online concert from Sabaton and DragonForce. Razer also promised “the world’s first RGB lighting reactive livestream”–though we’re not sure if that will be throughout the entire show, or just the EDM concert.
