Filipino gamers rejoice! Pinoy Gaming Festival now open to all

Filipino gamers rejoice! The Pinoy Gaming Festival is now open to all between April 28 - 30 at the Trinoma Activity Center in Trinoma, Quezon City.

With partners such as Globe, MSI, TNC, Bacchus, Super Evil Megacorp, Ubisoft, ViewSonic, GAMDIAS, and Garena, the Pinoy Gaming Festival offers a multitude of gaming experiences to the Filipino gamer. Below is the complete schedule of the Pinoy Gaming Festival:

Entrance is free for all comers. All attendees are treated with a special demo area for Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, For Honor, and Just Dance.

For Honor

Just Dance

Of course, gaming peripheral maker GAMDIAS is also present at the event to show off their gaming peripherals such as gaming headsets, mechanical keyboards, and mice.

We’ve actually reviewed some of their peripherals in the recent past. If you’re interested in their performance head over to our review section and see how they perform.

For all you Mobile Legends addicts out there, the Globe is hosting the first ever Philippines Mobile Legends Tournament at the PGF. With gameplay reminiscent of MOBA games such as DotA 2 and League of Legends, Mobile Legends makes sure that each player strategizes when choosing their own hero as they have their own inherent strength and weaknesses. As a MOBA, it requires players to work as a team in order to get the upper hand. Teams that register in the Mobile Legends tournament will be treated to special Globe Skin dubbed as Blue Spectre.


Project Xandata

Upcoming games such as Vainglory and Project Xandata are also present with demos to let users experience their respective gameplay.

The MSI VR One.

MSI is also showing off the capabilities of their components and laptops by letting users experience VR gaming via an HTC Vive.
