Eurogamer News PlayStation Xbox One Xbox One S Xbox One X

It’s less than a week away so what better time for EGX to reveal the final line-up and show floor map. As discussed previously Sony have their largest stand ever, Xbox are also returning with the playable Xbox One X, and there are also showfloor stands for Ubisoft and Nintendo. TiX will be there over the four days and there will be daily updates on the site!

If you are thinking of attending then the EGX mobile app is the best way to find your way around, with all the maps and all the content available at your fingertips.

The developer sessions are also fully confirmed, with one of the latest additions being Bungie. 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.

Virgin Media will again 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.

Square Enix Collective will also have a large presence, and will be showing a huge range of independent titles.
