Brighton, UK, 17th April 2012: The organisers of the Eurogamer Expo are delighted to announce a new PC and indie consumer games show coming to Brighton this July, with widespread industry support already confirmed.
Rezzed: The PC and Indie Games Show will take place at the Brighton Centre on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th July this year and expects to welcome over 5,000 hardcore PC and indie gamers to Brighton's picturesque seafront.
The Rezzed show floor will offer gamers their first chance to go hands-on with many upcoming PC and high-profile indie games due out later this year, including Aliens: Colonial Marines from Gearbox Software, with many titles to be announced. Attendees will also be able to discover amazing new experiences in The Leftfield Collection, sponsored by SEGA - a collection of up and coming indie titles curated by the editors of PC site Rock, Paper, Shotgun and Eurogamer.net.
Top developers including Creative Assembly (Total War) and The Indie Stone (Project Zomboid) will also be on hand to show their work to the public in the Rezzed developer sessions. More sessions will be announced soon.
Tickets are now on sale at www.rezzedgameshow.com, priced £12 for one day or £20 for a two-day ticket.
Rezzed will feature a range of surrounding activities, including classic game tournaments (Quake 2! Duke Nukem 3D!), a large vendor area (pick up the latest PC hardware, merchandise, board games and more), a range of retro arcade machines and much more.
The show will be brought to life online by exclusive media partners Eurogamer.net and Rock, Paper, Shotgun. Both sites are heavily involved in determining the show's content and panels, and will be reporting throughout the event.
"Following last year's hugely successful fourth Eurogamer Expo, we're broadening our horizons for 2012 by introducing a new summer event to highlight the best of PC and indie games," said Rupert Loman, Managing Director of organiser Eurogamer Network Ltd. "PC and indie games are enjoying huge success now after years in the ascendancy and we want to draw more attention to that fact and give people the opportunity to get up close to the biggest names and games before they're released."
Exclusive games, speakers and activities will be announced in the coming weeks as we lead up to opening day on 6th July. Check out www.rezzedgameshow.com for more details, follow us on Twitter (@rezzedgameshow) or catch us on Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/RezzedGameShow).
