Get ready, guys and gals! Tickets for this year’s EGX at the Birmingham NEC, England, have just gone on sale. EGX is the UK’s largest gaming festival, and draws many of the big names you’d expect to see at such a show.

Spanning four days, from September 21 – 24, the event is packed full of AAA reveals, a whole host of indie games to demo, eSports tournaments, developer Q&A sessions, gaming cosplay, and a chance to chat with developers and others in the video game industry.

Tickets are only available via the EGX website and prices are as follows:

  • 4-day Early Entry Super Pass: £67.50 ($83 USD)
  • Thursday / Friday Early Entry: £22 ($27 USD)
  • Sunday Early Entry: £26 ($32 USD) (Saturday is already sold out!)
  • Thursday / Friday / Saturday / Sunday Day Ticket: £19 ($23 USD)
  • Saturday / Sunday Afternoon only: £12 ($15)

In addition to a great weekend of gaming, EGX is also hosting two after parties. You will need to have an EGX ticket to be able to attend the after parties, which are on Friday and Saturday night after the main event has finished. Tickets for these are £15 ($18).

This year the event will be hosting a brand new Overwatch tournament. The preliminaries will be held at EGX Rezzed later this month, with the final stages taking place live at EGX. More details of the event will be released shortly so, if you are interested in taking part make sure you check back with us regularly to get the latest details!
