You loved it last year, so we’re bringing it back for 2022! Make the most of your standard EGX ticket and enjoy extra hours of gaming fun with exclusive After Hours content.
Why stick around?
Not ready for the party to end? We hear you. EGX After Hours will keep a section of the show open until 10pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday so you can chill out, catch up with friends over a few drinks, and play some games.
For those of you that are big into retro gaming (who isn’t?), we’ll have our classic old school consoles out and just begging to be played. Feel the warmth of nostalgia wash over you as you flash up titles like Mario Kart, Doom or the very first Call of Duty. Featuring gaming machines from every era, now’s your chance to travel back in time and reunite with your favourite pixelated pals over an ice-cold beer.
You’ll also be able to feast your eyes on our huge collection of fan-favourite tabletop games. Choose from Catan, Dungeons and Dragons, Haunted House on the Hill, Dobble and much, much more. So, pull up a chair and get comfy!
Our popular PC LAN area will also remain open for you and your friends to pull up a chair and play through that raid in Destiny 2, battle it out in Valorant or even see who can take command their army to fight for their kingdom in Age of Empires and so many other games.
And now for the most important part. Non-stop gaming fun is sure to make you a little hungry, so we’ve got you covered. As well as a fully stocked bar, After Hours will have a selection of mouth-watering food available, so you won’t need to leave the party early to run to the nearest McDonalds. Keep an eye on our social media channels as we’ll be revealing the full programme of activities coming to After Hours over the next few weeks!
What’s the catch?
There isn’t one! We just know that many of our guests come to EGX with friends and stay for a couple of days, so we figured if everyone’s keeping local, what’s the hurry in calling time? Kick back, relax and reflect on the awesome day you’ve had. You deserve it.
