Eurogamer Expo 2012 Expecting Sell-out Crowd
Posted by Anthony Dickens
20,000 tickets sold to date
The UK's premier consumer game show, Eurogamer Expo, returns to London's Earls Court from 27th-30th September 2012 and is expected to welcome over 50,000 gamers through its doors.
With over two months until the show starts Eurogamer.net have reported current ticket sales in excess of 20,000 ahead of forecasts based on last year's sell-out event.
There will be over 1000 screens of playable gaming at this year's Eurogamer Expo, including Assassin's Creed III (Ubisoft), Resident Evil 6 (Capcom), Tomb Raider (Square Enix), Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Konami) and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (Namco Bandai), with many more still to be announced - including a large number of UK first-plays.
"This is the biggest and best Eurogamer Expo we have ever put together and tickets are selling much faster than they have in previous years," said David Lilley, Eurogamer Events Director. "We still have tons of amazing content announcements to make, but we recommend people pick up their tickets soon to avoid missing out."
This year's Eurogamer Expo will also feature its biggest ever Developer Sessions schedule, where some of the industry's most famous names will present their work to the public and take questions on their progress.
The Eurogamer Expo will also play host to a dedicated PC zone, an Indie Games Arcade, a retro gaming area, regular tournaments with huge prizes, cosplay and community meet-ups, as well as the GamesIndustry Fair - a dedicated umbrella event for career sessions, games industry recruitment and the Games Invest summit.
Both Nintendo and Eurogamer have been quiet around whether or not Wii U will be available to play at the show, however we strongly suspect attendees will have the chance to go hands-on with Nintendo's latest console ahead of launch. Watch this space.
Nintendo Life will be attending the show once again, this time across all four days of the event — if you spot someone in a Nintendo Life t-shirt come and say hi!
