Playcrafting is bringing the 3rd annual Play NYC – the biggest, two-day game convention in New York – back to the Big Apple in a new home. It’s designed to harness, elevate and celebrate the true essence and impact of the U.S. gaming community on August 10th and 11th.

This year, gamers and enthusiasts of all ages, backgrounds and interests will experience a weekend-long event that will pack Metropolitan Pavilion with games of all kinds, interactive installations created just for Play NYC, game debuts from some of the most established and rising studios, and much more.

Among this year’s many features will be the exclusive, traveling Bose AR-cade, which will reveal the latest set of games created by select, New York-based developers during the second “Bose AR Game Jam” that will take place June 28-30, 2019. The heads up, hands free audio AR games will be built on the Bose AR platform. The Bose AR-cade is part of a year-long alliance between Bose and Playcrafting to give developers from across the U.S. access to the latest Bose AR-enabled wearables and developer tools so they can bring innovative experiences to thousands of game players and Bose AR users.

Launched in 2017, Play NYC gathers over 5,000 people for two packed days of games across all platforms - from PC to Xbox, Nintendo Switch, Playstation, and more to mobile, VR, and even tabletop games. In 2018, Play NYC hosted a historic second year, packing four floors with games of all shapes and sizes. This year it's found a new home at the Metropolitan Pavilion, bringing this epic convention across 25,000 square feet in the heart of Manhattan!

Whether you're a developer that wants to exhibit your game, a professional in the industry looking to explore the gaming scene in New York, or just a fan of games that wants to have a fun-filled weekend, you don't want to miss out! All ages are welcome as we celebrate games in a way that only the Big Apple can.
