We're a bit wary of more convention-style events in the already event-filled year, but the Eurogamer Expo
this year is promising something we've yet to do at any convention before -- get our hands on Assassin's Creed 2
before its November release
. Taking place in both Leeds and London (October 27/28 and 30/31, respectively), attendees will be treated to a smattering of playable titles from a handful of major publishers.
Though we might argue that the show could come a bit earlier in the year -- didn't that other convention in October
not do so well? -- a chance to play a mess of major holiday releases early sounds perfectly fine to us. Microsoft, Sony, Capcom, EA and a few others will be there, so for our friends across the pond who can't make it all the way to PAX, this seems like your best bet.
