id Software creative director Tim Willits will host the first UK showing of RAGE at 5pm on all three days in our specially configured, super-epic new auditorium.
inXile Entertainment president Matt Findley and game director Maxx Kaufman will also be on hand to present the first UK showing of Hunted: The Demon's Forge at 3pm on Saturday.
Not only that, but you will be able to go hands-on with Hunted, as well as Splash Damage's fantastic-looking first-person shooter Brink and of course Fallout: New Vegas on the show floor throughout the Eurogamer Expo.
Tickets for Saturday, 2nd October have now sold out, but you can still snaffle up tickets for both Friday, 1st October and Sunday, 3rd October. Just head to the Eurogamer Expo website - tickets are priced £8 per day, and we're open 11am - 7pm.
You will be able to play all our top titles from the likes of Bethesda Softworks, Sony, Ubisoft and many others on all three days and our session schedule also spans the whole weekend.

- Latest news: Eyes-on report from QuakeCon 2010
id Software's first new IP in over 10 years already looks extraordinary thanks to the dementedly cutting-edge id Tech 5 engine and its rocket scientist megatexture technology. If you've forgotten what shooters look like at 60 frames-per-second in 720p, make sure you check it out.
Hunted: The Demon's Forge
- Release date: Q1 2011
- Latest news: Hunted hands-on preview
Do you like co-operative action games? Do you like ridiculous, oppressive fantasy worlds that make The Lord of the Rings look like Disneyland? Then you might like Hunted: The Demon's Forge, where gruff brute Caddoc and lithe archer E'lara go head to head with a stack of demons and monsters as they burrow into a crumbling world where death lurks around every corner.

- Latest news: Hands-on with several new levels in multiplayer
UK developer Splash Damage is nothing if not ambitious. Brink - the star of the Eurogamer Expo in 2009 - aims to blur the lines between single-player and multiplayer team-based shooting, make the whole thing accessible for all and tell a ripping yarn at the same time. Signs so far are very good, but you'll be able to judge for yourself in less than a month...
Fallout: New Vegas
- Release date: 22nd October 2010
- Latest news: One lovely, uninterrupted hour of hands-on roaming
Surely this one needs no introduction? Obsidian Entertainment picks up where Bethesda Game Studios left off with Fallout 3, removing the action to New Vegas where mutation is less extreme and more of the local infrastructure survived - but where there are plenty of other challenges to face, including rival factions fighting over meagre resources and, of course, a huge cast of characters each with their own competing plans for the future.
Remember, tickets for Saturday, 2nd October are now sold out, but you can still buy tickets for Friday, 1st October and Sunday, 3rd October on the Eurogamer Expo website for £8 per day. We'll be open from 11am - 7pm. See you there!
