28 Aug 2015

Have you booked your flight to Sydney for the EB Expo at the end of October? You might want to if you are keen to be one of the first to play a host of upcoming games.

EB Games Australia has just announced the latest additions to the line-up of games to be showcased at EB Expo, Australasia’s world-class video games event. EB Expo 2015 will be held October 2 to 4 at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.

The latest games line-up adds a host of new playable titles across a mix of genres, including Dark Souls 3, and Need for Speed playable for the first time in Australia. Other titles announced as playable include Star Fox Zero, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, Yo-Kai Watch, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations, Dragon Quest Heroes. Plus, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst and Quantum Break will be available to experience at the event.

Free ‘Frightful Fiesta’ Halloween Skylander figures will be given to the first fans to play Skylanders SuperChargers at the booth. These will be available while stocks last and at a limit of one per ticket holder. Xbox have also confirmed Halo 5: Guardians’ hugely anticipated 24-player multiplayer mode ‘Warzone’ will be playable at the Expo as an Australian first.

“We’re stoked to add more playable titles to the massive list already announced and we’re confident every kind of gamer will be spoilt for options on the show floor,” said Senior Marketing Manager Elisha MacKenzie.

“There’s no better way to get hyped for this year’s most anticipated games than to play them before release all in the one massive location.”

Super Mario Maker and FIFA 16 Ultimate Team will also be playable on the show floor post-release.

This latest announcement comes in addition to other titles previously confirmed playable at EB Expo including Star Wars Battlefront, Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Rise of the Tomb Raider.

There’s never been a better year for Kiwi gamers to make the trip to the EB Expo.
