Wednesday, 12th August 2009 12:25 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Eurogamer Expo 2009 just announced its full publisher line-up, and it’s pretty much “complete,” from the look of it.

Sony, Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, Eidos, Sega, Capcom, Konami, 2K, Bethesda, Namco and Deep Silver will all have playable games on hand.

This year’s show is split over two UK locations. The Leeds event is being held at The Royal Armouries on October 27-28, followed by a London leg at Old Billingsgate October 30-31.

Games confirmed so far include Assassin’s Creed II, Halo 3: ODST, Borderlands, Tekken 6, Left 4 Dead 2, Dante’s Inferno and Aliens vs. Predator. Expect an awful lot more to be announced as we get closer to the show.

Press Release

Brighton, England, 12th August 2009: Eurogamer is pleased to announce that 12 of the games industry’s biggest publishers have signed up for this year’s Eurogamer Expo.

Sony, Microsoft, Electronic Arts and Ubisoft will all bring playable games to the event, along with Eidos, SEGA, Capcom, Konami, 2K Games, Bethesda, Namco Bandai and Deep Silver.

The London event will be hosted at Old Billingsgate on 30th and 31st October, as part of the London Games Festival. The Expo is in partnership with hmv.

Games playable at the event will include Christmas blockbusters Assassin’s Creed 2, Halo 3: ODST, Borderlands, Tekken 6 and Left 4 Dead 2. Expo visitors will also get to go hands-on with games slated for release in 2010 such as Dante’s Inferno and Aliens vs. Predator. More games will be announced during the build-up to the event.

“This year’s event is coming together really well,” said Rupert Loman, managing director of Eurogamer. “We’ve got some fantastic games on show and ticket sales are miles ahead of last year. With such great support from the industry we’re on course to making the Eurogamer Expo the UK’s best gaming event.”

The Indie Games Arcade will also make a return to the Eurogamer Expo in 2009. A raft of well-known and not so well-known indie titles will be on show, including games from Tunatech, Introversion, Robert Fearon, Hayden Scott-Baron, Rudolf Kremers and Alex May.

Visitors to the Expo will also gain entry to the Career Fair. Some of the world’s leading games studios will attend including Crytek, Starbreeze and Team17.

    I wish I could be pissed at my dad, becuase he’s going to a games convention, and I am not. xD

    Anyway, you guys all suck for going to Leeds. :/

    I don’t think it’s worth going if I can’t meet you all, and see what you all look/sound/feel/smell/taste like.

    So quite a few of you are going to the London one.

    I am sorry I will miss the Leeds orgy, with most of the proper VG247ers. Seems like Johnny and I, are the only commited VG247ers going to the London one.

    That is… If I decide to go.
