Calling all gamers! It’s that time of year again where you can experience the best and most exciting new developments in the gaming industry. If you want to see the latest technology, games and consoles heading your way, and even get hands-on before anyone else, we’ve got quite the treat for you.
Over 250 different games on nearly 2,000 screens filled the EGX 2015 show floor including blockbusters from PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, Activision, Ubisoft, SEGA and EA. EGX 2016 is expected to go even further with even more games from the world’s biggest publishers in tandem with the latest games from the flourishing indie scene.
Features planned for EGX 2016 include a huge Rezzed Zone with the world’s largest collection of independently developed games, a massive eSports stage, the biggest ever EGX cosplay arena, the UK’s number one fighting game stage, a giant tabletop gaming area, and more retro games and retro gaming systems than you can shake a Wiimote at.
Still not convinced that EGX 2016 is THE place to be? Check out these highlights from last year’s Virgin Media Gaming Hexathlon:
It’s not all about playing games though – there’s plenty going on for those looking to break into the gaming industry. There’ll be packed Developer Sessions featuring the world’s greatest game creators, a GamesIndustry.biz Career Fair offering invaluable advice to those looking to begin a career in games, and the Rezzed Sessions stage will feature panels giving in-depth insight into the game development process. And to cap it all off, you can even meet famous YouTube personalities face-to-face.
