EGX dates for 2014 announced
It feels like it wasn’t that long since the Eurogamer Expo finished – and in fairness, it actually wasn’t. Nevertheless, in those few weeks it has been rebranded EGX, and the dates for two events next year have been today announced.
EGX Rezzed – adding the brand name to the Rezzed events – will be taking place on the 28th to 30th March at the NEC, Birmingham, with tickets available from the event’s website already.
Rezzed has always been known for showcasing indie titles, bringing out the best of the smaller developers, although some of the bigger next-generation console games are suggested as being present too.
The list of titles on show has not yet been announced; however, the show’s general setup has, with games on display, the Leftfield Collection making a return for games that defy classification, developer sessions for some insight into making the games, and a Minecraft “Hunger Games” tournament (one of which was also run at last year’s Eurogamer Expo, attracting a lot of players).
Later in the year, EGX London is taking place from 25th to 28th September at Earl’s Court, London, being the new name for the Eurogamer Expo. While EGX Rezzed will be the place to play indies, EGX London will be the showcase for the triple-A titles – although there has always been a dedicated area for indies… an area which seems to be growing year-by-year in my estimation.
As with EGX Rezzed, there is no line-up available yet for what will be on display, although tickets will not be available until 1st April either. So far the only confirmation is that it will once again be held on two floors of the show halls as it was this year, and so again expects 80,000 attendees over the four days.
Tickets will be available via the event’s site, when released for sale.
