PC Gamer Weekender First Games Announced

For the past few years, perhaps the biggest PC Gaming website, PCGamer puts on a show in London, UK over a weekend in February. Showcasing all of the latest and greatest in PC gaming, whether it be hardware, software, interviews or panels with people in the industry.

As with the show in 2017, 2018 is going to be sponsored by HP Omen. Things have been fairly tight lipped with what games will be at the show, but today PC Gamer have announced a couple of games that will be on the show floor.

Biomutant, Spellforce 3, Frozen Synapse, MetaMorph: Dungeon Creatures, Shift Quantum, Guns of Icarus Alliance and Phoenix Point, all rounding off the first wave of announced games for the show.

Also at the show will be three new areas, which were asked for by the gaming community.

eSports Bootcamp – if you’ve ever wanted to get into eSports, here is a good chance to sit down with the pros to help you with your skills and show you a few tricks of the trade.
The Arcade – A retro gaming area, where you can play some of the classics, including Streets of Rage, Pac-Man and Sonic 2
Get Into Games – if you have ever wanted to get into the gaming industry, whether it be a developer, artist, coder, anything, here you can get some brilliant advance from those already working in the industry.
Along with the new zones, the classics from previous years will be returning with the VR zone, a series of PC workshops led by hardware experts, and with a whole plethora of games yet to be announced that will be on the show floor ready to be played, PC Gamer Weekender will be a show you definitely don’t want to miss if you live in the UK.

If you want to purchase tickets for the event, head over to the PCGamer Weekender site, where you can get them as low as £12.99

We will be attending the show across the whole weekend of February 17th and 18th, 2018. We’ll be releasing information about further announcements for the show in the run up to the event, so stay tuned!
