Date, game, cosplay… Everything you need to know about Paris Games Week 2022

After two editions canceled due to Covid 19, the French video game fair will offer a 2022 formula intended for all audiences.

From November 2 to 6, the Parisian high mass of video games will finally return to its quarters at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. Most of the major publishers and manufacturers will be there, with Ubisoft, Square Enix, Xbox, Bandai Namco, Nintendo, Capcom and Plaion. The opportunity, as in previous editions, to discover and sometimes even play titles not yet available, such as the highly anticipated street fighter 6 Where Just Dance 2023. But the most gamers among us will not be the only targets of the show.

Video games for everyone

With a space dedicated to the youngest and their parents, called PGW Junior, families will be able to discover educational games thanks to the Pédagojeu collective. Cosplayers will be able to find themselves in a real cosplay village, set up by the Imagin’Con teams. The opportunity to participate in a host of workshops and creative arts related to disguise. In a completely different register, Paris Game Week will also host esports competitions and demonstrations, ranging from traditional pro gamers to streamers, including the Senior Trophy final, reserved for players aged 65 to 95. A beautiful mix, representative of an ever more diverse community around video games.

Parisian salon obliges, a space will also be reserved for games made in France. Bringing together more than 25 studios, including Asobo the recent success of his A Plague Tale: Requiem, this concentrate of local productions will give the measure of what video games represent in France. The other ambition, less displayed, but still present in the minds of the organizers, is to reconnect with the success of previous editions… and perhaps finally beat the figures of their German Gamescom rival, thus becoming the first European show. To help them, you can already book your tickets at this address.
