EGX, the UK’s largest gaming event, has this week announced a partnership between themselves and YouTube Gaming, bringing the YouTube Gaming stage to EGX taking place later this month. YouTube Gaming is the brand new app from that aims to provide a home for the rapidly growing game community on YouTube.
The partnership will bring some of the biggest gaming stars on YouTube to EGX, taking part in a myriad of events such as hosting panels, workshops, Q & A sessions, and live Let’s Plays from the stage. Confirmed creators include Synidcate, The Yogscast and Outside Xbox.
One of the coolest things about this partnership has to be the fact that a large portion of EGX will now be streamed on gaming.youtube.com/egx. If you can’t make it to EGX, you can simply tune in from home and keep up with all the action. Global Head of Gaming, Ryan Wyatt, has the following to say regarding the partnership:
“EGX is a big moment on the UK gaming calendar that we’re psyched to be a part of – not least as an opportunity to meet members of this hugely vibrant gaming community face-to-face and to bring the best of YouTube Gaming to life for those that come down”.
“YouTube Gaming’s plans are hugely exciting and we’re delighted to host them at EGX.” “Their presence at EGX will be a fantastic new feature for our attendees”, said David Lilley, Managing Director of Gamer Events.
Have you used YouTube Gaming yet? I checked it out when it first released, and wasn’t blown away! I didn’t see why I’d use it over my subscription list. Still, this is an awesome partnership, and we look forward to seeing what YouTube Gaming produces moving forward!
