10 things to see and do at EGLX

1: Freeplay Featuring Fortnite

Stop by the Free Play area and try out the biggest game in the world right now: Fortnite. All weekend long we’ll be running endless Free Play games with 50 AMD Powered PCs and daily drop-in tournaments (sign up in person throughout the weekend) with amazing prizes and exclusive giveaways.

2: Meet & Greet with Mitch Marner

Toronto Maple Leafs star Mitch Marner will be playing Fortnite on the Bell Fibe Stage with three lucky fans on Saturday, Oct. 28th, followed by an exclusive Meet & Greet. Tickets for this are limited and selling fast so make sure to get yours before they run out.

3: Nintendo Booth

Nintendo returns to EGLX with a gigantic booth packed full of exclusive and new Nintendo Switch games, including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee, and many more mysterious games and amazing prizes.

4: Developer Conference and Panels

Want to learn about game development? See what goes on behind the scenes? Learn from the best in the industry in 3 full days of world-class talks and panels, networking opportunities, a Friday night Industry Mixer, hands-on Masterclass Workshops and so much more.

5: Halloween at EGLX

With Halloween only days away from our show we’re going all out! Join our cosplayers with your best costumes both spooky and fun for some great giveaways and try out some of our activations including The Exorcist VR Legion Experience: Step into the darkness of their booth and let the terror take over as they lead you to your doom.

6: Esports

Esports have been a part of EGLX since our founding days, but this time we’ve really outdone ourselves. With WESG’s $5.5million global esports “Olympics” Canadian finals, Canada Cup’s consistently enormous FGC + Smash tournaments, and EGLX’s own overflowing Free Play area (expanded after its success last time), there won’t be a single dull moment for esports fans the entire weekend.

Take a stroll through the aisles and discover incredible artwork, crafts and apparel, all supported by Ontario’s local artistic community. Or play dozens of innovative indie games, free for everyone to try and enjoy, while chatting with the creative people who made them.

8: Retro Zone

Take a step back in time and play one of our 25+ arcade classics and keep your quarter – the games are on us, all weekend.

Keep your eyes on the Bell Fibe Stage, or you might miss some of our guests, influencers and one-off performances, like Sword Play: Winner of the Just-for-Laughs Best Comedy Award and the Atlantic Fringe Best Comedy Award. It’s a must-see adventure full of sword fights, chandelier-swinging, more sword fights, and sordidly witty comedy to the epic score of The Princess Bride, Final Fantasy, and Game of Thrones.

10: Dart of War Foam Dart Battle

Last but not least, we’re thrilled to welcome back Battle Sports Inc. for their third EGLX, bringing you the Foam Dart Battle to End All Dart Battles. Load up, step into our epic battle arena and try out the latest tools of foam warfare in Dart of War. (Ages 5-12)
