Auckland Armageddon Expo announces gaming companies coming to the event

20 Jul 2018

The Auckland Armageddon Expo is happening again this October and this year promises to bring us a lot of new video gaming content. 

The Armageddon Expo announced the companies coming to this year's event via its official Facebook page today. The post said: "With #AUCKGEDDON in our sights we're excited to announce that gaming giants PLAYSTATION, NINTENDO, OMEN BY HP, LOGITECH and FIVEIGHT will be at Auckland Armageddon 2018 - Auckgeddon. Tickets go on sale August 1st!"

PlayStation is sure to bring its impressive lineup of PS4 games including the highly anticipated Spider-Man and more. Nintendo has tons of Switch games it can display while Fiveight will bring us the best from Ubisoft, Warner Bros and more. 

It's worth mentioning Xbox New Zealand will once again miss the Auckland Armageddon Expo. While they might be absent this year., there's always next year to look forward to. 

The Auckland Armageddon Expo is happening during Labour Weekend at the ASB Showgrounds. Aside from video games, many special guests, stores and other events will be happening too.
