Paris Games Week 2011

NCSOFT to Attend Paris Games Week 2011

September 20, 2011

We're delighted to confirm that NCSOFT will be attending Paris Games Week 2011! Following on from our extremely successful demos at gamescom in Cologne and PAX in Seattle, MMO lovers in France will get a taste of the hottest new game experiences on the market. The show begins on the 21st of October, and runs through until the 25th of October!

To give you a flavour of what to expect, players will have the chance to get their hands on the latest build of Guild Wars 2®. It's the same demo that was the talk of the show at gamescom, and Games Week guests are sure to love it too! If we didn't see you in Cologne, this is your chance to get your hands on Guild Wars 2.

After our world exclusive reveal of Carbine Studios new game WildStar® at gamescom, we thought it only fair to bring the game to Games Week as well. You'll have the chance to get your hands on this exciting new demo of WildStar and meet with the creative and technical geniuses behind the game, attend exciting game demonstrations, and connect with fellow players!

Stay tuned to our dedicated Paris Games Week 2011 event portal. We'll give you the inside story on lots of other cool booth activities for NCSOFT fans!

Gather your friends and family and join us for the French gaming event of the year.
