Guild Wars 2 Wins Game of Show At Rezzed

by William Schwartz


MMORPG Guild Wars 2 won game of show at indie gaming expo Rezzed 2015 in London as voted by attendees.

The booth for Guild Wars 2 was packed from opening with the queue wrapping around the game’s booth for the entire event and with good reason – Gamers were coming to see the newly announced first expansion for Guild Wars 2 called Heart of Thorns which brought a whole new “Mastery” system and a slew of new content.

EGX Rezzed 2015 was by far the biggest yet with over 12,000 visitors coming to play on over 150 games on 300+ screens!

“This year’s EGX Rezzed provided the most positive feedback of any show in the EGX family. Consumers enjoyed the discovery of a new and fascinating venue and developers enjoyed the opportunity to either take their own space or throw themselves together”, said David Lilley, Managing Director of Gamer Events. “Last week’s show provides the perfect springboard for this September’s EGX, the largest gaming event in UK history”.

From Software’s upcoming Bloodborne came a close second pulling in queues which never lessened. DONTNOD’s episodic time-bending adventure Life is Strange also fared very well as did the cheeky macho platformer Broforce.
