This week the UK’s biggest most exciting gaming event takes place, Eurogamer’s EGX London 2014. We have the full map of the show floor and it reveals some exciting surprises including the Batman Arkham Knight Theatre.
EGX takes place at Earls Court, London between the 25th and the 28th of September. For its residency it dominates the exhibition centre taking up the ground and first floor. What’s immediately visible is that PlayStation has the most floor space taking up all of Zone 5 and a good portion of Zone 2 with Destiny. Sony exclusives will include Bloodborne, The Order: 1886, Drive Club, Singstar Ultimate Party, and Little Big Planet 3.
