If you’re an avid gamer, and you missed IGX, then you missed out on what was one of the most enjoyable gaming events in India. IGX, or Indian Games Expo, was held for the first time in Mumbai, on the 14th and 15th of November. Players could try out all the latest games including Call Of Duty: Black Ops III, Witcher 3, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, and many more.
However, it wasn’t just games. You could meet game developers like Apar Games and Vanishing Point Studios, who showed off their upcoming games. Gamers looking to get the latest games and buy some cool gaming merchandise could go to GamesTheShop, Psychostore, Sunder Electronics, and many other stores present there.
We also got to check out VR equipment made by Absentia VR, a Bangalore-based startup showed off its Tesseract VR headset. It promises to work with a wide variety of games, ranging from classics like Road Rash to modern day hits like The Witcher 3. Though it didn’t feel as visceral as the Oculus Rift, you can’t exactly find fault with its price, starting at Rs. 12,000 when it ships.
The major presence was by Sony, given all the PlayStation 4s set up around the venue on which most of the Video Games were running. There were also contests held for WWE 2K16 and Mortal Kombat X where players could test their skills and win PS4 and a chuck of cash. Pretty awesome, if I may say so!
And what gaming event is complete without some amazing cosplays from fans across the country. You can check all the action out in the pictures below!
This may not be a Gamescom or E3, but it was definitely the right place for gamers in India to come together to geek out while enjoying their favorite gaming titles. Hopefully we’ll see you all there again next year!
