EGX 2017 to feature Blizzard Entertainment

The UK’s biggest games event, EGX 2017, kicks off in just under two weeks, and we're delighted to announce that Blizzard Entertainment will be there with Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm.

EGX attendees can stop by the Blizzard stand for some hands-on play time with the award-winning first-person shooter and critically-acclaimed MOBA. Esports fans can also catch the grand finals of the Overwatch Road to EGX community tournament, with teams battling to win OMEN by HP PC kit. And Overwatch cosplayers are invited to have their pictures taken with the Tracer statue at the Blizzard stand for the opportunity to take home some swag.

As part of Heroes of the Storm: Showdown, members of The Yogscast will be streaming the game live from EGX with guest influencers and show-goers. In addition, the Blizzard store will make its first-ever appearance at a UK event, giving visitors the chance to purchase a full range of official Blizzard merchandise, including convention-exclusive items.

We're celebrating the tenth EGX event this year and plan to make it our best ever so why not join us at the NEC in Birmingham on the 21st to 24th September. Tickets are available to purchase here.
