Virgin Media to stage epic Destiny 2 experience at EGX

EGX headline sponsor Virgin Media will be giving Guardians a Destiny 2 experience to remember at the UK’s biggest gaming event with 4K gaming, an immersive environment and a host of special guests.

Virgin Fibre will have a dedicated Destiny 2 area complete with props and costumes recreating those that appear in the game. Guardians can play either Crucible or Strike gameplay modes on almost 50 PlayStation 4 Pro stations. The top performing teams battling out each day will win incredible Destiny 2 prizes.

On Saturday, Virgin Fibre will be joined by special guests from Bungie along with YouTube star and Destiny 2 player, Ali A who will compete against gamers on the stand in rounds of the game.

Giving a keynote talk in the EGX Theatre on the theme of ’Building Better Worlds in Destiny’, Community Manager David ‘Deej’ Dague will host a panel discussion featuring artists from Bungie, who’ll outline how the worlds of Destiny are built from the ground up to reflect an artistic vision.

In this behind the scenes look at the game, the audience will learn how Concept Artists and Environment Artists work hand in hand to create the places your heroes explore in search of action and glory, with the opportunity to see some of the earliest visions of the worlds you’ve come to know.

The session will take place at 3pm (BST) on Saturday and those not at EGX will be able to catch the session live on Twitch and it'll be available to watch later on our YouTube channel.

EGX celebrates its tenth 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.
