The five games we’re most excited to play at the EB Games Expo this weekend!

The EB Games Expo is happening in Sydney this long weekend, offering gamers of all ages the chance to get their hands on the newest and greatest games from around the world, before they’re released to the public. From October 2nd to the 4th, over 15,000 square meters of gaming entertainment will be at the fingertips of everyone who grabs a ticket to the event – which will be held out at Sydney Olympic Park – and in addition to gaming will feature rides, appearances from the likes of The Umbilical Brothers, a laser skirmish and more!

As we get excited for this annual escapade, we looked through the games and are counting down the five games that we’re most excited about at the event!

5. Adventure Time Finn & Jake Investigations (BANDAI NAMCO)

Who doesn’t love Adventure Time? And who doesn’t want to go off on a series of investigations with Finn and Jake? We know it’s not going to be the best game of all time, but we’re expecting it to be a fun one. And we’re pretty excited to play it.

4. GUITAR HERO LIVE (Activision)

The games critics in us leads us to say that we want to say that we want to find out what’s new in this “Live” edition of the Guitar Hero series. But truthfully, we just want to show everyone how great we are at Guitar Hero. And, realistically, we’ll realise how terrible we actually are.

3. RISE OF THE TOMB RAIDER (Microsoft/Square Enix)

The sequel to 2013’s Tomb Raider is, unsurprisingly, the best looking Tomb Raider ever. And all the reports are saying that it may be one of the best the series has ever seen in terms of gameplay, too. We want to be the judges of that!

2. FALLOUT 4 (Bethesda Game Studios)

How can we not be excited to try out Fallout 4? Do we really even need to give a reason here?


This is shaping up to be the highlight of the whole event: a chance to be among the first in the world to try out Battlefront’s multiplayer mode, with tonnes of other EB Games Expo guests. The buzz on this game is HIGH and coinciding with the launch of the new Star Wars trilogy, the timing couldn’t be better. We can’t wait to get our hands on it…

Get hands on with all these games and more at EB Games Expo, happening from Friday October 2nd to Sunday October 4th. Tickets are open to all ages though some games will be only open to guests over the age of 18 due to rating restrictions. For tickets and more details, head to:
