All gamers can also look forward to exciting announcements that include the latest Assassin’s Creed game in the franchise – Assassin’s Creed Syndicate – and the fun-tastic dancing game, Just Dance 2016, which are both ready for demos at French video game developer Ubisoft’s booth.

Thirty of the top Filipino independent game developers will also converge at the Indie Arena to showcase their creations for a chance to win the Best Game award, to be determined by a pool of judges as well as by votes of ESGS attendees.
