UK Prepares for Halo 5 Launch, MCM Comic-Con & EGL

Winter is coming! However for us gamers that’s not necessarily a bad thing, as we like to play indoors in the warmth. What is does mean though is more events, more game releases and more gaming time. This weekend MCM Comic-Com comes to London, and European Gaming League hits the shores of Blackpool.

MCM Comic-Com

Want to see and hear about some of your favourite comic heroes? Maybe you’re a Cos-player? Whatever your fancy, head to the Excel London Exhibition Centre this weekend. Stars from Doctor Who, The Flash, Thunderbirds and more will be in attendance – maybe you’ll get to have a selfie with your childhood hero. Also, be sure to check out Ubisoft’s Assassins Creed and get hands on with our ASTRO A40 + MixAmp Pros on their booth.

No expo would be complete these days without a major eSports final on the schedule. ESL UK are hosting the CS: GO Premiership Finals this weekend at MCM. So if you’re in to Counter-Strike, then make sure to check out the finals whilst you’re there.

European Gaming League

Europe’s largest open console LAN event is back in Blackpool this weekend. The top teams and talent from Call of Duty and Gears of War return to the famous Norbreck Castle, as teams battle it out for a share of prize money. Feel like you’re one who can compete against some of these teams with your squad? Maybe you just want to go down and play for fun and to meet new people? Head on down tomorrow and get signed up.

Halo 5 UK Launch

One of the most anticipated game titles of the year hits the streets next Tuesday, and the whole gaming nation is talking about it – Halo 5. We’re big fans of Halo: so big that we have Halo edition A40 and A50’s audio systems for sale on our site.

A40 + M80 Halo 5: Guardians Edition

A50 Halo Edition

These products will be on show at the UK launch party, if you’re lucky enough to have an invite. You can pick up your copy of Halo from most high-street retail stores from 00:01 on Tuesday morning.
