Here’s what to expect at the show:
Hands-on gaming on console, PC and handhelds
Indie Games Arcade
Community meet-ups and parties
The GamesIndustry Fair including careers and education
…and lots more!
Playable on the show floor
The show floor is the heart of the Eurogamer Expo and where you get to play the biggest games of the next year ahead of their release dates. Expect the show floor to be full of exclusive UK first-plays and new content for upcoming titles.
Social, Fan-meets, Cosplay and more
The Eurogamer Expo isn’t just a great place to discover and sample games and check out developer sessions – it’s also a great place to make new friends, meet up with old ones, take part in competitions, buy cool merchandise and even dance the night away.
Attractions this year will include a community meet-up on Saturday night (if you read Eurogamer.net, make sure to head here to meet the Eurogamer team!), more sellers than before (from American sweets to action figures and everything in-between, including the latest games), and fan meet-ups for various online communities. After we dipped our toe in the water last year, we’re also planning a bigger cosplay contest.
The tournament area should be bigger than ever too, with more games represented across more genres (including staples like fighting titles) in league with the biggest competitive communities. Whether you’re a beginner with skills or a seasoned pro, you should be in with a shout.
