To celebrate the month of love, and showcase the importance of mobile data in today’s digital world, Trace Mobile is rolling out a three-part web-series titled Get The Love.

Directed by Mike Muller, Executive Creative Director at SenseSix, Get The Love follows the story of lead character Davisto played by Teboho Tsotetsi who is chasing the attention and affection of his crush, Linda played by Reabetswe Shongwe.

Through the hilarious insults, backhanded compliments and advice offered by his trusted friends Tshepo and Don, played by Setshaba Phalane and Sheunopa Bell, the web-series gives a candid first-hand view of the troubles today’s youth get into, in search of connection.

“The Get The Love web-series is an evolution of our TVC that we launched last year using our Trace Troops,” says Prescillia Avenel-Delpha, senior vice president of the direct to consumer division at Trace Mobile. “Towards the end of the year we got the idea to build onto the story as a lot of youth resonated with the product that we were showcasing at the time – extremely affordable data.

“Once again, through the usage of our Trace Troops we have put together an entertaining three-part series we think a lot of youth in South Africa will resonate with as they will see themselves in one of our four main characters.”

Trace Troops is the employment initiative of Trace Mobile, which aims to give full-time employment to youth by training them in sales, marketing and events in order to best represent and sell the brand onto their peers. The brand’s main aim is to empower the youth of South Africa by providing accessible and affordable data.

Furthermore, in an effort to provide additional and varied work experience to these troops, Trace Mobile gave six of their troops – Teboho Tsotetsi, Reabetswe Shongwe, Setshaba Phalane, and Sheunopa Bell, Boitumelo Pitso and Phindile MKO – an opportunity to get experience in front of the camera.

Trace Mobile will release the first episode of Get The Love titled Self Love this Friday, on Valentine’s Day. To view the episode and stand a chance to win 1 of 3 date nights worth R3 000, or the grand date night worth R10 000 visit www.tracemobile.co.za.

Hi-Rez Studios and First Watch Games have released an explosive gameplay trailer for their slick cross-platform team shooter Rogue Company. Delivering action, tactics and a whole lot of attitude, the new trailer reveals Rogue Company’s energetic gameplay and third-person, action movie flair. 

The game will be launching in mid-2020 on the Nintendo Switch, PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, all on the same day.  

Taking on million dollar contracts from governments and special interests, Rogue Company is a vigilante force going where governments can’t to stop credible and imminent threats. Relying on public opinion and popular support, many Rogues embrace their newfound celebrity. 

Headed-up by Lead Game Designer – and former Halo world champion – Scott Lussier, Rogue Company is the debut game from First Watch Games; a band of Hi-Rez Studios developers and industry veterans with experience working on some of gaming’s most famous and successful shooters. 

“Gamers should be able to play with their friends, regardless of platform”, says Lussier. “Rogue Company is all about bringing together a huge community of gunslingers and giving them a depth of gameplay to show off their individual style.”  

“We’re tired of grown-up shooters being overly serious”, says Chris Larson, Executive Producer. “Rogue Company matches a modern, high-style universe with tight, tactical action gameplay. The alpha testers are loving it and we can’t wait to welcome more of you in as we gear up for launch!” 

Rogue Company is currently in Alpha (apply here), available to wishlist via Epic Games Store and will release this summer on all platforms.

At the end of the 90 (virtual) minutes, Noah beat Nyovest with a score of 4 – 2. While the game was entertaining for both celebrities, it provided a way for South Africans to remain entertained during the lockdown.
