Replay Events have a host of new partners and gaming guests to announce today in the build up to PLAY Expo 2015 which begins this Saturday 10th October.
Following on from the recent announcement that Dark Souls III will be playable by the public at the show for the first time in the UK, more exclusives, guests and talent can now be revealed.
Jeff Minter, the founder of independent software house Llamasoft, will be on the show floor demoing various exciting gaming experiences both modern and classic. As a true veteran of the independent gaming scene who has developed games since the days of the Sinclair ZX80 and Commodore 64, he is a very special guest not to be missed.
Also representing gaming heritage at the show will be the Oliver twins, Philip and Andrew, who are the creators of the Dizzy series and now founders of game studio Radiant Worlds. The two brothers will be presenting a talk about their latest game Sky Saga on the Gamer Disco stage, where many of the show’s guests will be holding talks and sessions for the public to attend.
Devolver Digital will also be in attendance with a slew of their latest titles including The Talos Principle and Not a Hero which will be playable at the show before they’re released on PS4 later this year.
As an added bonus for this year’s attendees, games publisher PQube will be showing off brand new realistic rally simulator, Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo for the first time ever in public. They will also be bringing Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair for its first public hands on in Europe.
PQube will also be sponsoring fighting game tournaments at the show including their own title BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend before its release in Europe.
As something a little different, PLAY Expo will also host an education fair supported by Microsoft, UKIE and Aardvark Swift, among many others, all taking part to share their advice and experience and to show that it’s more than possible to fulfil the dream of working in the games industry.
All this and even more gaming goodness, pinball madness and stars from the world of film and TV can all be found at PLAY Expo 2015 which takes place from 10th-11th October at Event City Manchester.
