The EGX London show floor is the heart of the show and will be packed with the biggest pre-release console and PC games. 2013's event saw over 1000 playable consoles & PCs hit the show floor and gave gamers the chance to try out the latest gaming hardware including PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Oculus Rift and Nvidia Shield. The EGX 2014 show floor will be the biggest yet, packing even more PCs, consoles & handheld devices onto two floors of Earls Court.
The EGX developer sessions will bring attendees face-to-face with leading game designers as they present their brand new projects. All sessions will be streamed live and will be available to watch after the event via the EGX Twitch channel. In previous years we've welcomed the likes of Hideo Kojima, Phil Harrison and David Cage to our packed auditorium. Expect a similarly stellar line-up for 2014.
The Leftfield Collection champions the very best games the indie scene has to offer. These titles are often just as creatively vibrant (if not more so) than their big budget cousins, making the Leftfield Collection a great destination to unearth hidden gems. The Leftfield Collection is a place to sample artistic curios, quirky releases and indie games on the cusp of greatness. Joe Danger, Proteus and Frozen Synapse are just a few of the outstanding titles to have featured in the past.
