Xbox One joins the Eurogamer Expo’s biggest ever line-up of playable games on the show floor, which features every gaming system currently on the market or launching in the next 12 months and every major game.
This year’s Expo also promises our strongest ever line-up of developer sessions, where many next-generation game makers will showcase titles due for release in the coming months. This year organisers have also introduced an additional theatre to sit and view sessions, charge phones and meet other gamers.
The show also promises a great line-up of other features, including the hugely popular Indie Games Arcade, the tournament area, our biggest-ever retro showcase – home to a stellar line-up of pinball tables – and a broader range of retail stands. The Eurogamer Expo will also have game artwork on display this year, with some available to buy.
