Eurogamer Expo 2013 takes place at Earls Court, London, from Thursday 26th September to Sunday 29th September, and will be the first place in the UK that gamers will be able to play the next generation of home console hardware.

Games that will be available to play on the show floor this year include Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag from Ubisoft, Battlefield 4 and FIFA 14 from Electronic Arts, Batman: Arkham Origins from Warner Bros, Dark Souls II from Namco Bandai and several titles from Nintendo, with many more still to be announced.

GAME will also return to the Eurogamer Expo this year as retail partner and will be offering pre-orders deals for next-generation hardware on the show floor.

In total, 70,000 gamers will visit the Eurogamer Expo over four days and organisers have taken out extra space to accommodate the rise in numbers.
