Gamer Network, the world’s leading network of independent video games websites and producer of the UK’s premiere video games events, today announced that tickets for this year’s EGX – powered by Virgin Media – are now on sale.
Running from 24-27th September at the NEC in Birmingham, this year’s event will not only be the largest in EGX history but the largest gaming event ever held in the UK. With over 80,000 members of the gaming community, thousands of screens of playable PC, console, mobile and indie games, plus the largest number of gaming culture features – cosplay, eSports, retro gaming, merchandise and more – EGX 2015 will be a massive festival of video games and gamer culture.
Playing exclusive, pre-release games is the very core of the EGX experience. This year, more leading publishers than ever have already confirmed their support for the show, including 2K, Bandai Namco Games, Bethesda Softworks, Capcom, Electronic Arts, Introversion Software, Nintendo, PlayStation, SEGA, Square Enix, Team17, Ubisoft, Versus Evil and Xbox. Virtual Reality also returns to EGX, with Oculus VR the first company to confirm its attendance.
EGX 2015 is the best platform for indulging a passion for video games. Throughout the four days of the show, visitors can meet games industry legends – such as developers, pro-gamers and press – discover how to get a job in the games industry at the careers-focussed GamesIndustry Fair and watch their games development heroes in the Developer Sessions.
EGX 2015 will have an extra focus on YouTube channels and creators this year. Through a partnership with famous YouTube network Yogscast, visitors to the show will learn how to become the next YouTube sensation, plus gamers will be able to meet many Internet stars in person.
“Taking EGX to the NEC gives us a great opportunity to reach a broader audience in the UK and we’re supremely confident that we’ll kick-off strongly today”, said David Lilley, Managing Director of Gamer Events. “We’re very excited about our new home at the NEC”.
