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.
