Gamer Network is delighted to reveal the fantastic feedback received from its EGX Rezzed attendee survey, further solidifying its position as London’s premier games event. More than 15,000 enthusiastic gamers joined over 100 exhibitors at the historic Tobacco Dock in East London from the 7th-9th April to celebrate the best of gaming from around the world.
With over 175 playable, pre-release games and experiences from the indie scene sitting alongside blockbuster AAA titles and cutting edge VR technology, EGX Rezzed was a thrilling preview of the year ahead in games.
As part of the exit survey attendees were asked to vote for their favourite game from the event. Total War: Warhammer, the latest in Creative Assembly’s massively popular Total War series, emerged on top and has been crowned EGX Rezzed 2016 Game of the Show.
With a large presence on the show, attendees were treated to the latest playable code over a month before the game’s release in May. John Clark, SVP Commercial Publishing of SEGA Europe said “EGX Rezzed is an incredibly valuable event for Sega to build lasting community awareness for all of our titles. The show plays such a crucial part in the build up to release day bringing the community closer to the fantastic game created by CA”.
Dark Souls III took the runner-up spot, wowing attendees who were delighted to get hands-on with the infamously difficult RPG before its release in mid-April. PlayStation VR was a huge hit with visitors who had the opportunity to try the groundbreaking system way ahead of its worldwide launch in October.
Overcooked! was the highest placed indie title on the list, the game’s fantastic four player co-op mayhem proving hugely popular with the EGX Rezzed crowd. Quantum Break, Remedy’s latest blockbuster, was the centrepiece of Xbox’s large show floor presence and placed fifth in the Game of the Show list.
