From MOBAs, FPS titles, Sports Games and Fighting Games, if you’re an Esports fan then you’re sure to have something to enjoy at ESGS 2016.

The countdown to South East Asia’s biggest video game convention is already less than a week away before Day 1, and as the name itself screams the Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit will not be without its share of competitive gaming showcases complete from popular genres like MOBA and FPS, and even Sports titles and Fighting Games.
