One of London’s most anticipated gaming events, EGX, returns to Earls Court this September.
The event will take place from September 25th to September 28th and will see some of the biggest names in the industry coming together to hold talks, games, competitions and showcase their newest releases.
This year promises to be bigger than ever as gaming giants PlayStation, XBox One and Nintendo will all be present, keen to show off the games that everybody has been talking about.
Two games that are getting a particularly warm reception from eager gamers are Shadow of Mordor and Mortal Kombat X, which will both be available to play at the event. Warner Brothers will be presenting Shadow Mordor, inspired by Lord of the Rings’ Middle Earth, along with their zombie epic Dying Light.
Games developer Monolith will be holding a developer session on Saturday 27th September at 2pm which will give gamers a deeper insight into the new release. Other developers who will be on hand to inform gamers about their new games are TT Games, who will soon be releasing the hotly anticipated Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.
Lovers of zombie games will be in their element, as it’s now been confirmed that Dead Island 2, developed by Yager Development, will be available for game play throughout the three-day event.
Another facet of the event which will excite industry leaders is its Future of Gaming hub. EGX is teaming up with Virgin Media to discuss the most exciting up and coming innovations in gaming technology. In an age where mobile gaming is taking over, it’s a topic that’s on the tip of everybody’s tongues.
This is giving rise to a new branch of internet marketing that’s also having a huge effect on the industry. Today, affiliate website hosts like classicasinos.com are pushing gamers in the direction of popular online games – but with the aforementioned mobile gaming now becoming so popular, these games may have to focus their efforts on being smartphone and tablet friendly.
In the lead up to the event, bloggers will be presenting new articles and video logs about new products and innovations that are getting us all talking. Those which have attracted most attention will be showcased at the Virgin Media stand at the event.
Those who love a little competition can also take part in a Mario Kart tournament. The live final of the tournament will be taking place at EGX on Saturday 27th September. The winner, who can enter via an online code, will be given a brand new copy of every new game published by Nintendo for Wii U.
For both gamers and figureheads in the industry, one thing’s for sure: EGX London is not to be missed.
