​IgroMir 2016: an overview of the venue

30 September 2016

In Moscow, "Crocus Expo" exhibition center in the 11 th time opened its doors to the exhibition "Igromir". Traditionally, the best game publishers and developers have brought to the capital of the most recent projects - including those who are just getting ready to leave. Recently, "Igromir" consists of two parts - a classical game of the boom and the Festival "Comic Con". Your attention - a brief, but hopefully a useful guide to show that there was no question of where to go and what to see.

What? Where? When?

"Igromir-2016" - the largest game show in the country, which takes place every autumn in the exhibition center "Crocus Expo" (next to the metro station "Myakinino" station). The event is visited annually by more than 150 thousand. People, which allows us to consider "Igromir" one of the biggest gaming exhibitions in the world, along with E3, Gamescom, China Joy and others. This year's event is traditionally last four days. On September 29, the exhibition will be the so-called business-day for the press and VIP-visitor, and since the 30th of "Igromir" to start work in the usual format for everyone.

Who will come and it will be shown?

On "Igromir" usually come all the major game publishers and developers - from Sony and Microsoft to Activision and Ubisoft. They all show either their most recent games that have just that appeared on offer, or only the upcoming projects. At this year's "Igromir" will be missing some important participants in previous years. For example, Microsoft and Nintendo.

Also, the present exhibition will miss the company Wargaming, which in past years has always distinguished the most ambitious and spectacular stands. The reason for the lack of easy - Wargaming will hold at the end of the year its own separate event in Moscow under the name WG Fest, which will be fully dedicated to the company's games. However, even without the Belarusian publisher to "Igromir" should be interesting.

Games of the exhibition housed in two large halls - the third and fourth. In the third largest stand it takes the company Sony. This is not surprising, because the Japanese already this fall will release in Russia several gaming devices, which should show the audience. The first is an updated and PlayStation VR PS4 Pro console. At the booth you can try virtual reality helmet and become familiar with some of the expected games in the "classic" format. Among them: the primitive action adventure Horizon: Zero Dawn, racing simulator Gran Turismo, cyberpunk scene blockbuster Detroit: Become Human and, of course, part of a new God of War.
