After the success of IGX in November last year, IGX is set to return to Mumbai this year. IGX will take place in the World Trade Centre on the 15th and 16th of October and will be showcasing some of the best that gaming has to offer across all platforms, ranging from the PC to consoles and mobile.
IGX promises that this year’s event will be bigger and better than the last; they’ll be showcasing titles such as Mafia III and WWE 2k17 and some cutting-edge hardware technologies. Furthermore, there’ll be a bunch of tournaments spanning popular competitive games and we’ll be seeing the return of the gaming cosplay competition.
The entry to IGX will be free for all and online registration for the competitions will begin in August.
IGX stands for Indian Games Expo if you’re still wondering and SKOAR! covered the expo last year, in fact we had a booth set-up as well. We introduced gamers to the old school charm of Quake 3. None could take down any of our veterans, though, maybe this time?
IGX featured a bunch of the latest and upcoming titles from back then and everyone was free to try them out to their hearts content. There were long queues of gamers waiting patiently for their turn to have a go at their favourite games. You’d think they were lining up for a concert. There were also PC component manufacturers with all their fancy toys on display and game retailers showcasing their wares and gaming merchandise. So this is the place to be if you’re looking to juice up your computer and maybe pick up some of the latest titles.
Let’s not forget the cosplay competition as well where those whose passion went beyond just gaming could fulfil their desires. It was a great platform for budding cosplayers to meet kindred spirits and mingle with others who shared their interests. Here’s hoping this year’s IGX truly will be bigger and better than last year!
