Eager fans embrace new central UK venue
Gamer Network, the world’s leading network of independent video games websites and producer of the UK’s premiere video games events, today announced that tickets for this year’s EGX – powered by Virgin Media – have smashed through the 20,000 sales milestone.
In just two weeks 20,000 – or one quarter – of all EGX tickets have been sold, including 100% of the Virgin Media Early Entry and Saturday and Sunday Early Entry tickets. Tickets of all types are selling quickly (Friday Early Entry tickets are especially limited), with consumers demonstrating their excitement for EGX 2015; the UK’s biggest ever video games event, with the greatest number of playable pre-release games.
With the huge initial publisher support – 2K, Bandai Namco Games, Bethesda Softworks, Capcom, Electronic Arts, Green Man Loaded, Introversion Software, Nintendo, Oculus VR, PlayStation, SEGA, Square Enix, Team17, Ubisoft, Versus Evil and Xbox – gamers know they’ll be getting their hands on 2015’s best gaming experiences before the general public.
Fans have also fully embraced the new venue. Centrally located just outside Birmingham, with fantastic transport routes to the north and south of the country, the NEC provides the ideal space to support the whole of the UK.
For the small number of Londoners afraid to leave the capital (you know who you are) EGX has partnered with Virgin Trains to offer a 25% discount on rail travel (offer also available nationwide).
