EB Games has announced that all Australia’s major gaming publishers will be in attendance at the Expo 2014 later this year.
The event will be held over three days from October 3rd to the 5th at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.
Following the success of last year’s event the EB Expo 2014 will be even bigger this year with a new pavilion expanding the show to a massive 35,000sqm. The pavilion will feature never-before-seen attractions including the famous Robot Wars UK exclusive to the EB Expo.
Included EB Expo admission is the opportunity to get up close with robots weighing in at a whopping 100kg each. Attendees will get to see these awesome machines up close and personal at the free demonstrations, Q & As, and photo opportunities in every session.
The EB Expo continues to be the premiere event for all leading and emerging publishers to showcase and introduce unreleased blockbuster games to the Australian public.
“The EB Expo is a video game mecca with the big draw card being hands-on game play with the hottest unreleased games. Add all the live shows, awesome attractions and a night time fireworks and pyrotechnics show – it truly is a gaming utopia,” said EB Games National Brand, Events & Engagement Manager Debra McGrath.
“Whether you’re a gaming enthusiast or someone who just likes to play with your family, you’ll be spoilt for choice over the weekend. We’ve kept everyone’s favourite events and live shows from last year and planning heaps of new exciting content that will make this year’s EB Expo the biggest and best ever.”
Last year’s sold out Family Day is back. On the Sunday families can enjoy major attractions like the Video Game Hero parade, meet the stars of the ABC show ‘Good Game’, or enjoy free activities like face painting, balloon twisting and more. Joining the line-up is the new Tumbletown playground area, Family Zone Café and the Lovesac Handheld Lounge & Stage where attendees can relax, win prizes or battle it out to score the Mario Kart champion title.
Building on the success of last year’s Retro Gamer Garden, this year we introduce Free Play City. Relive gaming through the ages in Retro Central Park, have the chance to hold the highest score in The Arcade, get serious in the Console Business District (CBD) and experiment with PlayStation®4 (PS4™) and Xbox One in The NXT Gen Lab.
Attendees can play, watch, connect and experience gaming on a whole new level. The EB Expo is the public’s chance to experience the latest releases from Activision, Electronic Arts, Nintendo, PlayStation, Ubisoft, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, XBOX plus many more.
