EB Games Expo announces playable games line-up
The annual EB Games Expo, held in Sydney Australia, is gearing up for the 2016 show and today we’ve got our first look at what is in store.
The EB Expo has become a regular blip on the radar of Australian gamers, with all the major publishers touring out their biggest titles and developers for their first fully public display. It’s a chance for punters to get their first hands-on with the games, and for media to get access to new content and developers for interview.
The EB Expo is held from September 30 to October 2 at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park, and tickets are on sale now. The prices range across a number of tiers - $39.95 to $749 - offering different levels of access (and speed of access) to games.
