EB Games has announced the dates for this year’s EB Expo.
It will be held from Friday, October 3 to Sunday, October 5 at the Sydney Showground at Olympic Park.
The date is four weeks before Australia’s other big games expo, PAX Aus, held in Melbourne from October 31 to November 2.
Tickets for the event will go on sale at 10am Sydney time on Thursday, April 24.
“The EB Expo is a video game mecca with the big draw card being hands-on game play with the hottest unreleased games,” says Debra McGrath, EB Games national brand, events and engagement manager. “Add all the live shows, awesome attractions and a night time fireworks and pyrotechnics show – it truly is a gaming utopia.”
“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.”
Publishers confirmed to be exhibiting their upcoming games include Activision, Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, Ubisoft and Warner Bros.
