Gamescom Asia 2022's Virtual Entertainment Zone And Where You Can Watch It

Gamescom Asia is only a week away! The premiere gaming convention will be held at the Suntec Convention and Exhibition Centre from 20 to 22 October 2022.

Not gonna lie, Red Dot Diva was disappointed when Gamescom Asia 2022 announced that the B2C Entertainment Zone will be a fully online show this year. She had been hoping to be able to interact with fellow geeks on the show floor, while trying out new games at the various exhibitor booths. Still, the fact that the festival is set to go on despite globally challenging times, shows the industry's confidence about gaming in this region.

Gamescom Asia's industry segment, called the Trade Zone, will remain as an in-person event at Suntec. Over 80 exhibitors from 16 countries are geared up to showcase their games and expertise during the event, and industry attendees will be able to enjoy the exhibition area with scheduled panels on stage, trade conference, networking opportunities, and speed-dating sessions.

As for the consumers, here are ways that you can still part of this year's Gamescom Asia Entertainment Zone:

PRIMETIME - 19 October 2022 (8 - 9 PM SGT)

The one-hour PRIMETIME show will kick off the Entertainment Zone, with news, first looks, game premieres and more. Some of the brands that will be showcased include Sony PlayStation, Sega, Tencent, Scopely and Hooded Horse. The session's host Victoria Cheng will be presenting in English, while international hosts Dejet and Mint will engage audiences virtually in Bahasa Indonesia and Thai respectively.

STUDIO - 23 October 2022 (1 - 7 PM SGT)

STUDIO will stream a programme consisting of a special spotlight on Southeast Asian video games and developers, a Singapore showcase, a first look at Scopely’s latest game trailer, a fireside chat on Japan’s games scene, and a broadcast of World Warrior - Capcom Cup IX Qualifiers.
