At this year’s EGX London, attendees will be treated to the full eSports experience, thanks to the new partnerships with Gfinity and epic.LAN.
Along with the casual and fun Minecraft Hunger Games stand that has become a firm favourite at previous EGX events, the expo has now kicked it up a notch, offering gamers the chance to take part in a variety of competitive gaming tournaments.
By taking a walk over to the Gfinity stand, attendees can take part in mini tournaments, including a League of Legends competition running across the four days of the expo, with plenty of prizes up for grabs, along with the opportunity to meet pro-gamers ready to answer questions and offer tips on how to become a pro at playing games.
Gfinity will also be staging a 4 person FIFA 15 tournament, in celebration of the release of FIFA 15 scheduled for the week of the event. The tournament will feature 4 of the UK’s biggest FIFA YouTubers, playing together in a one off exhibition match, to decide who is the best YouTube FIFA player.
“We are going to provide some exciting and entertaining competition with the gaming community” said Martin Wyatt, Head of Content & Partner Relations at Gfinity. “Everyone who visits EGX can come to our stand, game like a pro and talk to us about getting into eSports. We are excited to be a partner of this great event and look forward to helping others get involved.”
In the run up to the event, Dota2 fans can take part in epic.LAN’s online Dota2 qualifier matches, taking place from Sunday 30th August through to Sunday 14th of September. The top 4 teams from the online qualifiers will then move on to battle it out at the tournament finals held at EGX London on Sunday 28th September.
epic.LAN will also be running a number of fun Dota2 games throughout EGX, giving newcomers a taster of the game and once again offering people the chance to pick up more tips, and helping to grow the UK Dota community.
