Digital Nationz 2014: What's on...

23 Sep 14

New Zealand's own technology expo Digital Nationz is happening this weekend and the full list of games you can see and play has now been revealed.

There will be a number of games that will be playable, while some will just be shown in video form. It's worth noting Assassin's Creed Unity is at Digital Nationz, but only as a watchable video.

It's not playable like Assassin's Creed Rogue. Other than that, many other games will be free for you to trial out.

Many of the games being displayed at the Digital Nationz show floor won't be out until October and November. This will be your first chance to get to play some of these big titles.

-Halo: The Master Chief Collection
-Far Cry 4

-The Crew
-Dying Light
