Play Expo Manchester 2016

Play expo- This was ETNLís first time at Play Expo, a convention that has been around for 5 years, making it one of the newest expos in the UK.

Play expo is very different to the likes of EGX, it is mainly focused on the retro side of gaming; even though there are AAA games available to play.

The retro side of the event was shown massively at the 2016 event when they celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Tomb Raider franchise (one of Stephís favourite franchises).

ETNL had the chance to meet up with the developers of Tomb Raider for this anniversary and they all shared their best experiences within Tomb Raider.

The meet up had taken place after the developers finished their segment on stage, discussing Tomb Raider, so ETNL got an exclusive talk with them (and a signed copy of the original Tomb Raider game). Whilst at Play expo, ETNL also got hands on with Dragonball Xenoverse 2 and WWE 2K17; showing how Play expo also ventures into the AAA side.

On top of this, Play expo also housed independent stands where merchandise, games and rare consoles such as original limited edition N64ís. Much like every expo, there was the fair share of cosplay including the Umbrella Corps!
