The Leftfield Collection, curated by the editors of Eurogamer.net and Rock, Paper, Shotgun, will return for 2013 and will house a wide and varied selection of indie games created by some of the brightest minds in indie development.

Attendees will have the chance to take in presentations by world leading game designers at the Rezzed developer sessions.

“Rezzed 2012 was a wonderful mix of high-profile, big-budget titles and quirky indie games, which helped foster an incredible atmosphere. We were delighted to enable UK gamers to get hands-on for the first time with blockbusters such as Borderlands 2 while also acting as a springboard for indie games such as Hotline Miami,” said Rupert Loman, Founder and CEO of Gamer Network. “The NEC in Birmingham allows us to replicate this success while enabling an extra 6,000 gamers to attend the event.”

David Lilley, Events Director of Gamer Network, added: “The PC and indie games markets have continued to blossom over the last 12 months. Rezzed represents an ideal opportunity for both large publishers and indie developers to showcase their latest works to 10,000 hardcore PC and indie gamers.”

Rezzed debuted in July 2012 and brought 4,000 gamers to The Brighton Centre to get hands-on with the latest big-budget PC games, attend presentations by world-renowned game designers and experience the most innovative indie games. Rezzed: The PC and Indie Games Show heads to The NEC Birmingham this June with capacity for 10,000 attendees.
