Destiny 2 voted EGX 2017 game of the show

Destiny 2, Activision's epic multiplayer shooter, has been crowned EGX 2017 game of the show by the event's attendees.

The Bungie developed game, exhibited in partnership with Virgin Fibre, proved to be a star attraction at this year's event with visitors heading to the stunning stand to take part in Crucible or Strike gameplay modes in a bid to win coveted Destiny 2 swag.

With so many big budget blockbusters filling the show floor, competition for the GotS award was fierce. Super Mario Odyssey on Nintendo Switch grabbed the runners up spot while Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Origins completed the top three. The top 10 games as voted for by the EGX attendees:

  1. Destiny 2
  2. Super Mario Odyssey
  3. Assassins Creed Origins
  4. Call of Duty: WWII
  5. Detroit: Become Human
  6. Sea of Thieves
  7. Star Wars: Battlefront II
  8. Far Cry 5
  9. South Park: The Fractured but Whole
  10. Dragon Ball FighterZ

Visitors to this year's event were also asked to vote for their Rezzed game of the show. Over 150 indie games were playable at the event and ultimately it was an old EGX favourite that came out on top, chaotic brawler Gang Beasts. World War 2 FPS Battalion 1944 secured second place while Worms WMD, the latest in Team 17's long running series, placed third. Here are the top 10 Rezzed games of the show.

  1. Gang Beasts
  2. Battalion 1944
  3. Worms WMD
  4. Strange Brigade
  5. Shooty Fruity
  6. The Escapists 2
  7. Dead Cells
  8. Overcooked: Special Edition
  9. Bloody Zombies
  10. Black & White Bushido

The next EGX event on the calendar is EGX Rezzed 2018 running from the 13th-15th April at London's Tobacco Dock. Tickets go on sale later today and will be available to buy from the official website.
