What’s on at Eurogamer Expo 2012
This year’s Eurogamer Expo, running from the 27th – 30th September in London, is the second major trade fair in Europe since Gamescom back in August. Although it doesn’t draw as large an attendance figure over the 4-day event, which last year drew 34,500 visitors, the organizers are proud to welcome some of the world’s most talented developers and feature some of the most anticipated games which are coming up for release this year and into 2013.
There is plenty to see and do on the show floor and this year gives you the chance to play a range of games including:
Assassins Creed III
Call of Duty Black Ops
Dead or Alive 5
Dead Space 3
Resident Evil 6
Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
There is a full list of all the games being featured at Eurogamer 2012 on their website.
There are also developer sessions which span the entire event, these sessions kick off on Thursday 27th September with Frank O’Connor, 343 Industries Creative Director, talking about Halo 4. You will get a chance to hear exclusive updates and also raise your own questions to the faces behind the games.
If that’s not enough you can also check out the games industry fair which takes a look at how you can get develop a career in gaming, play in the indie games arcade, or attend one or more of the various social events that are going on over the 4 day event – whether you want tournaments, meet-ups or cosplay there is something for you at Eurogamer 2012.
If anyone happens to be going along do let us know, I should be there on Friday 28th September. Anyone who follows me on Twitter will know that I booked Eurogamer and then my sister asked me to go to a wedding fair on the same day. But it turns out that both are happening at Earls Court (different exhibition halls)… I’m taking this as a sign!
