It's no secret that our whole family are gamers. Our children have all grown up watching just as much LEGO Star Wars and Tomb Raider as they have TV, and PLAY Expo is a great opportunity for us to show our 6 and 8 year old boys the kind of computer games we used to play - even though they're generally not very impressed with the graphics!
There will be absolutely masses to see and do, including:
Tomb Raider's 20th Anniversary - the largest ever Tomb Raider panel will assemble for a Q&A hosted by SkySports eSports Commentator Matt Andrews.
The northern qualifier for the Red Bull 5G tournament. Gamers will battle it out on Hearthstone, League of Legends, Project Cars, Rocket League and Street Fighter V, and the winner will be flown to Japan later this year for an amazing all-expenses paid trip.
UK developer Rebellion's VR reboot of Battlezone. First-person tank warfare across gorgeous neon landscapes. Be amongst the first in the world to try it out - competing against each other.
Big names in gaming, including Ian Livingstone CBE (Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) and Mevlut Dinc (Enduro Racer and Last Ninja 2).
Europe’s biggest retro gaming area, including 4-player retro lounges.
Over 100 Pinball tables, all set to free play.
Over 100 Arcade machines, also set to free play.
