Instead of writing an article after my trip to EGX, making you wish you went, I’m going to tell you why you should be there this year.
Last year was rather insane with the release of the Xbox One and the Playstation 4. Not only did we get to experience both new consoles, but we also got a sneak peak at a whole ton of games before their general release, including, but definitely not limited to: Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Batman: Arkham Origins and Titanfall.
EGX London is back from the 25-28th of September 2014. For any gamer this is a pretty big must in 2014. The weekend is chock-a-block full of events, sessions, competitions and merchandise.
The GamesIndustry Fair, paired with the game designer sessions, is a great stepping stone for anyone looking to make their way into the game developing industry. So whether you just play or if you’re interested in joining the industry, this is the place for you.
Throughout the weekend, amidst the inevitable shopping that you will do, there are countless opportunities to show off your skills as there is an entire stage dedicated to cosplayers, as well as gaming competitions held throughout the weekend. The Ultra SFIV Capcom Pro Tournament, the Nintendo Life Mario Kart 8 Tournament and the Minecraft – Hunger Games mod are the main competitions, with many amazing prizes to be won. So, you better brush up on your skills.
EGX have announced a few of the games playable on the show floor, these include:
1. Alien: Isolation
2. Battlefield Hardline
3. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
7. Fable Legends
8. Forza Horizon 2
