David Lilley, Managing Director of Gamer Events, said:

Gamers from across the UK and beyond descended on the NEC, Birmingham to welcome EGX to its new home. With the ever-growing EGX community scoring both the venue and the accessibility of the location more highly than 2014, we know EGX is ideally situated as the premier gaming event in the UK. The incredible size and popularity of the indie gaming area means we’re extremely excited for our upcoming London event, EGX Rezzed. Featuring both indie and AAA games, we can’t wait to return in April to Tobacco Dock.

You’ll be able to play Star Wars Battlefront beginning tomorrow, October 8, when the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC beta opens for everyone.
