Get hands-on with the newest releases

It’s why we’re all here. The main event. The showstopper, you might say. We know that you love getting up close and personal with the hottest new games, so EGX 2020 will continue to give the people what they want.

With over 250 playable games across the show floor, you can feast your eager eyes on the world’s biggest PC and console games before they’re released.

How do I play?

If you want in on a slice of the action, all you need to do is simply come along, take a seat and button mash to your heart’s content. Many of the titles you’ll see are unreleased, unexplored, and in some cases, never-seen-before games, so hold on to your hats!

You can go it alone or get competitive with multiplayer or tournament options (we’ve seen some epic partnerships forged in the queue before!), the choice is yours.

What to expect

Dimmed lights, glowing screens and buzzing anticipation, the atmosphere at EGX is always incredible. Picture row upon row of purpose-built gaming stations that give you an unrivalled line-up of first play releases to choose from. So, get your thumbs at the ready for a gaming experience you’ll remember.

Expect to see some of the world’s biggest PC and console games all under one roof. As always, there’ll be huge stands from your favourite publishing giants, and we’ll be announcing these big names on social media over the coming weeks. What’s more, they’ll be joined by a whole host of units run by talented indie developers, keen to show off their games and give you the inside track on the story behind them.

In previous years we’ve been proud to present first plays of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Marvel Avengers, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Dreams and not to mention Pokémon Sword and Shield. Our 2019 event featured an amazing Cyberpunk 2077 experience where attendees could watch exclusive gameplay for the first time in the UK in a custom-built 200+ seat theatre.

The EGX show floor is full of surprises, so make sure you plan enough time to see it all. You’ll also get the chance to have your photo taken at your favourite developer’s stand and even buy one-off merch (everything from pin badges to figurines)!

Just can’t wait?

If you’re itching to be at the front of the queue, we’ve got the solution. For a guaranteed fast track to your chosen game, upgrade to an early doors ticket and enjoy a blissful extra hour of uninterrupted gaming before the doors open at 11am. Publishers and games are being confirmed all the time so keep checking back here and on our social media channels for the latest updates.
