Day One of the Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS 2016) has wrapped up, but there’s definitely more to see for the rest of the weekend. Girls Got Game had the opportunity to wander around and check out what this year had to offer, and what we’ve seen so far has us hyped!

This year’s ESGS raises the bar from last year. Offering interactive booths and set-ups accommodating multiple test areas, the major showcases cater to gamers from all walks of life. If you’re curious about the games on display, line up and experience them for yourself.

SONY Playstation’s press event opened with an exciting look into exclusive material for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. We got to sit down with Infinity Ward’s Eric Monacelli who took the time to tell us a little bit about the newest game for the franchise.

Monacelli shared that Infinite Warfare takes its new campaign beyond Earth and up into the stars. It takes inspiration from movies like Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down, as well as flavor from Starship Troopers and the Alien series.

The sneak-peek looks great! Players are going to get to experience fresh combat scenarios, including air and space combat. Monacelli also took the time to discuss the Zombies mini-game, which takes place this time in a space-themed amusement park. It’s going to feature new gameplay features and mechanics.

The Q&A closed off with a chance for us to check out the Jackal Experience using the Playstation VR.

A second exclusive from SONY Playstation was a chance to test out the much awaited sequel to Shadow of the ColossusThe Last Guardian.

While unable to test it out for ourselves, we were more than happy to watch playthroughs of a game. It’s been in development for over a decade.

The overview was fun. We took a quick over-the-shoulder video of the gameplay with SONY’s permission. The Last Guardian hits stores this December 2016!
