EGX London, or Eurogamer Expo as it once was, is an event dedicated to the wonderful world of video games. It's an opportunity for gamers to get together and play the biggest and best PC and console games before they hit the shops. 2013 was our biggest event yet and gave gamers the chance to play both next gen consoles for the first time and get hands-on with the amazing Oculus Rift and Nvidia Shield. EGX London 2014 is set to be even bigger, with more floor space and more machines than ever before.
Tickets will go on sale in April 2014. In the meantime, why not check out our sister event, EGX Rezzed? EGX Rezzed takes place in March at The NEC in Birmingham and will feature many of the same attractions as EGX London including next gen consoles, PC gaming, developer sessions and loads more.
EGX London 2014 takes place from Thursday the 25th September to Sunday the 28th September.
The venue is Earls Court in London, the full address is as follows:
Earls Court One

In this instance the first person to arrive should collect the wristbands for the party. This person will then need to leave the venue temporarily to pass on the remaining wristbands as their friends arrive.
We're working hard to secure the best games and features for this year's EGX London. We'll list everything on the website as soon as we can but please bear in mind that we need the go ahead from our exhibitors before we're able to reveal the goodies. Follow us on twitter and facebook for the latest developments.
The playable games will be the same on each day, however, the developer sessions will differ from day to day and the GamesIndustry Fair runs on Thursday and Friday only.
There are plenty of places to eat and drink within Earls Court including, our favourite, a Pizza Express. Try the dough balls. If you fancy exploring the local area in search of food, you're welcome to leave the venue and then re-enter using your wristband.
Earls Court has free public wifi but, with so many people trying to access it, don't bet on it being reliable!
Yep, although there will be a small charge per item. Bikes will need to be locked outside and with the current state of bicycle crime in London we don't recommend it.
Yes. Please come to the organisers office near the main entrance where a member of the Earls Court staff will be able to direct you.
No! Everybody is welcome to take pictures etc. Please bear in mind that some exhibitors may ask you not to film or photograph certain games. We ask that you respect their wishes in this case.
Earls Court aims to be fully accessible and user-friendly for disabled visitors. Visit their website for more info. We aim to make all aspects of the EGX London show floor fully accessible. If you experience any issues on the day, please head to the organisers office and we'll be happy to help.
I'm an indie dev and I'm interested in exhibiting my game in the Indie Games Arcade.
