The organisers of EGX London 2014 have announced the first of many games that will be playable at the UK's biggest gaming in just a few months' time, including titles from Microsoft, EA, Activision and a host of indies.
EGX London 2014 is run by Gamer Network, which also publishes this website, and takes place at Earls Court from 25th to 28th September, with over 80,000 gamers expected to attend. Tickets are on sale now.
The initial line-up, which will be expanded upon considerably in the coming weeks and months, includes EA's cops-and-robbers shooter Battlefield Hardline, Alien: Isolation from Sega and Creative Assembly, and several games from Microsoft, including Sunset Overdrive and Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Although Microsoft is the first of the platform holders to break cover, Sony and Nintendo will also be at EGX London 2014, with their line-ups to follow soon. Oculus Rift is also at the show on a dedicated stand, so visitors will be able to find out whether they like it as much as Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg.
Confirmed indie titles include Gang Beasts, something of a break-out hit at EGX Rezzed earlier this year, as well as Volume from Mike Bithell and Heat Signature, Tom Francis' follow-up to last year's critically acclaimed Gunpoint.
