What an incredible weekend! EGX 2022 returned to London’s ExCel, and Virgin Media were once again proud to sponsor the UK’s biggest gaming event for the tenth consecutive year. From crowd-grabbing AAA releases to wicked indie titles, plus epic eSports tussles, cosplay fits for days, streamer showcases, meet and greets and loads more, it was the four-day weekender that truly had it all.
Want to see just a glimpse of what you missed? Check out some of the highlights below, and then read on to find out more about what went down, plus scroll down to enter our epic prize draw for your chance to win an Xbox Series X, plus some seriously awesome EGX merch.
This year at EGX was bigger than ever before. Fans from up and down the country flocked to get hands-on with some of the biggest games, including 2022’s most-anticipated first-person shooter, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which was showing off its beta and proved very popular. For a shooter of a different kind, Splatoon 3 also drew the crowds with some ink-credible Turf War tournaments.
Speaking of tournaments, the afterhours MultiVersus tournament from Warner Bros. Interactive was very competitive, with 18-year-old LgdStar eventually pummelling his way to victory in a well-fought contest. MultiVersus may be a relatively new game in the world of eSports, but this tournament showed just how big it’s set to become.
MultiVersus, of course, sees the likes of Batman, Shaggy and Arya from Game of Thrones battle it out on the same stage. Anywhere else in the world, that might be unique. But at EGX, that’s just another day, because Saturday’s Cosplay Showcase saw a final showdown between Link from Twilight Princess, Ezio from Assassin’s Creed and General Beatrix from Final Fantasy 9. Just another EGX Saturday.
Other highlights included the hands-on demo of Street Fighter 6, a meet the devs panel for 25 years of GoldenEye 007, a Call Of Duty AMA featuring the game’s voice actors, an EGX pub quiz that was just as competitive as any game played all weekend and loads more. Roll on next year...
