Australian Gamers are in for a treat in October when the country’s largest video gaming show, the EB Expo 2013, opens its doors at the Sydney Showground in Olympic Park.

EB Games and the Australian gaming publishers are building upon the massive scale of lasts year’s show. Visitors are going to be able to get hands-on with upcoming games from the likes of EA, Ubisoft, Activision and Warner Entertainment.

Not only are Australian gamers going to get a first-look at the hit games of tomorrow, but there’s also going to be a number of exclusive game-related activates adding to the fun.

Ubisoft’s swashbuckling addition to the Assassin’s Creed franchise will be playable on the show floor with one of the Ubisoft developers in attendance, speaking about his experiences working on the game.

EA Games are bringing a piece of their upcoming The Sims 4 game to the show. Visitors will be able to have a go on the brand-new version of Create-A-Sim for The Sims 4. Offering a level of customisation never seen before, gamers will be able to create their own detailed Sim character.
