EGX Rezzed is focused on the best of PC and indie gaming, alongside next-generation console titles. It will be held at The NEC in Birmingham from March 28th developer sessions, tournaments, a huge retro arcade and more.
“Twitch has quickly established itself as the leading live streaming service for gamers and we’re delighted to be partnering with them for EGX,” commented Rupert Loman, Gamer Network’s CEO. “We’re looking forward to them broadcasting a wide variety of content from our events to their huge online audience.”
With Twitch being the dominant live streaming platform catering to the entire video game ecosystem, partnering with Gamer Network to broadcast its popular European events reinforces Twitch’s leadership position. Twitch will have a booth at both events where members from all corners of the gaming industry will be scheduled to take part in live broadcasts. This will ensure gamers unable to attend the convention will still have a window into the software and hardware on display and the opportunity to hear and interact with developers and publishers.
“Gaming is an international phenomenon with unique and engaging moments happening in every time zone,” said Stuart Saw, Regional Director, EMEA, Twitch. “With the ubiquity of broadband combined with the Twitch platform, we are now able to share these experiences with a global audience, including live highlights from EGX Rezzed and EGX London. Both conventions have made a mark on Europe, so now that mark won’t have to contend with borders.”
