MANILA, PHILIPPINES — It’s another great year for gamers because E-Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS) has brought the biggest gaming event of the year in Manila
Held at the SMX Convention Center on October 27 to 29, ESGS 2017 featured the big gaming brands, including local indie game developers along with their incredible game demos and product showcase for local gamers to try out and experience first hand.
Entering the ESGS hall, the first thing to see is Sony’s Playstation area where the gaming giant set up a huge selection of gaming booths, which boasts a driving simulator set-up, Playstation VR booths and even a battle arena for Call of Duty: WWII and other Playstation 4 games.
International game developer Ubisoft also showcased their new addition to one of the most loved game franchises, Assassin’s Creed: Origins. Fans and newbies alike tried out the highly anticipated game in the area.
While Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World is also another game on exhibit. Obviously fans really loved the game as the upcoming action role-playing game is now on its fifth iteration of the Monster Hunter franchise.
There were also a lot of local game developers who showcased their wares that are in development. Here are a few of them:
Secret 6’s upcoming first person shooter, Project Xandata is definitely a game to watch out for. It is a competitive frag hard FPS that definitely has potential to be in e-sports. Secret 6 has an arena setup powered by MSI. We tried out the game and really had fun with it. It’s something that we’re looking forward to have a community with.
Next up is Indigo Entertainment’s anticipated mecha fighting game Garrison Archangel. We really liked this one, being fans of mecha robots ourselves. The unique graphics is really a niche on its own and the battle system allows you to customize your mech to your own specifications. Definitely a game to try as well.
Of course, gaming won’t happen without hardware, and the big brands made a huge wave at ESGS with their newest products and activities.
MSI showcased amazing PC Rigs at their Rig Modding competition. They also held an auction for gaming laptops and they also have huge sale discounts for MSI Gaming gear. While HyperX showcased their gaming peripherals for both PC and Console.
Predator also displayed their gaming laptops as they held several competitions for Dota 2, Overwatch, and Playerunknown’s Battle Grounds to show the power of their gaming laptops.
The much coveted Predator 21x made it’s presence as well as their new Predator Triton 700 gaming laptop.
PowerColor, Thermaltake, Sennheiser, ASRock, AOC, Philips, and Zotac also exhibited their hardware in the gaming summit.
Organized by Gariath Concepts and dubbed as one of the biggest E-Sports Competition and Gaming Conventions in Southeast Asia, ESGS continues to grow and provides the best gaming and esports experience in the Philippines and has grown to become a bookmarked local gaming event, eagerly awaited by the gaming industry, fans and gamers.
