Xbox One will be playable for the first time in the UK at Eurogamer Expo 2013

Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse and Killer Instinct all on show floor.

Gamer Network is pleased to announce that UK consumers will be able to play the Xbox One next-generation games console from Microsoft for the first time at this year’s biggest ever Eurogamer Expo.

Eurogamer Expo 2013 (#EGX) takes place at Earls Court, London, from Thursday 26th September to Sunday 29th September this year.

Xbox One games that will be available for visitors to play on the show floor include Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, Killer Instinct, Kinect Sports Rivals and Project Spark. A theatre demo of Dead Rising 3 will also be available for attendees.

In addition, Microsoft corporate vice president Phil Harrison will present an exclusive Xbox One presentation, part of the Eurogamer Expo developer session schedule, at 12pm BST on Thursday 26th September. The session will also be streamed online at http://youtube.com/eurogamer.

In total, 70,000 gamers will visit the Eurogamer Expo over four days and organisers have taken out extra space to accommodate the rise in numbers. Tickets are already completely sold out.

Xbox One joins the Eurogamer Expo’s biggest ever line-up of playable games on the show floor, which features every gaming system currently on the market or launching in the next 12 months and every major game.

This year’s Expo also promises our strongest ever line-up of developer sessions, where many next-generation game makers will showcase titles due for release in the coming months. This year organisers have also introduced an additional theatre to sit and view sessions, charge phones and meet other gamers.

The show also promises a great line-up of other features, including the hugely popular Indie Games Arcade, the tournament area, our biggest-ever retro showcase – home to a stellar line-up of pinball tables – and a broader range of retail stands. The Eurogamer Expo will also have game artwork on display this year, with some available to buy.

More details on all of this and more will be announced in the next few weeks. You can find out more at http://www.eurogamerexpo.com, by following us on Twitter (@eurogamer_expo, #EGX) or on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/EurogamerExpo).

I still enjoy playing games now can be anything from retro, indie to today's biggest and best titles, it isn't just computer or video games that I enjoy doing I also like to go to the Theatre and Cinema.
