Cosplay to take centre-stage at Canal Walk Gaming Expo
GAMERS will be in their element next week when the second Canal Walk Gaming Expo, powered by BT Games and Good Hope FM, launches at the centre on Tuesday.
Fans and enthusiasts of all ages are encouraged to cosplay as they experience more competitions, more prizes and more opportunities to encounter one of the world’s fastest growing sectors – electronic entertainment.
Complementing the latest gaming releases, early festive season specials, news and insights from the gaming world, the expo will stage the Kwesé Ace Football Tournament using the new Xbox FIFA 2017 game.
Early registration for this event is recommended as it’s not only championship honours that are up for grabs, but significant prize money too – R10 000 first prize. Enter on: http://ace.kwesesports. com/
PlayStation fans will have their share of the fun with the chance to be a part of the future of gaming and PS Virtual Reality headsets, which run on PS4 consoles, in special booths on site. A number of PSVR-specific games have just been launched in the UK and BT Games has confirmed there will be a wide selection from which to choose at the expo, and will be taking pre-orders ahead of the official South African launch which is only early next year.
Among the competitions is a cosplay initiative next Saturday, October 29 from 12pm.
The expo runs from Tuesday to Sunday, 10am till 9pm daily. For more information and to see the full schedule go to www.canalawalk. co.za
