EGX Rezzed

EGX Rezzed – All gamed out

EGX Rezzed

We recently got the chance to attend London’s biggest gaming event: EGX Rezzed which ran between 13th-15th of April 2018 in Tobacco Dock, London.

What is EGX Rezzed?

Well EGX Rezzed is a video games event that’s the little brother of the guys who bring you EGX in Birmingham each year. The massive games convention in the UK, however, it still features many of the features of the bigger event. You’re able to play pre-release games on both PC/Console, there’s also a strong focus on indie titles! You even have the opportunity to chat to the developers!


We got the chance to check out Codemaster’s newest, craziest racing game yet. It’s called ONRUSH and is available for Xbox One and PS4 this summer! (June 2018) – However, it’s just a build and is no reflection of the main game. However, what we can say is that it’s a lot of fun. By fun, we mean FUN!

Consequently, it’s worth noting that ONRUSH is an Arcade game. Codemasters are marketing ONRUSH as the game to bring back Arcade racing, it’s doing a pretty good job of it too. ONRUSH is a racing game that rewrites the rules of racing. By throwing players in to competition where playing for fun is just as important as winning. Sounds conflicting right. Well, it’s a sport that’s built for the fans, by the fans and ONRUSH, as you can kind of tell by the name. So it’s all about chasing that adrenaline rush. Whilst maintaining that competitive edge to win.

ONRUSH: Features

ONRUSH, within the game, is designed to be a contact sport. Therefore playing it safe will get you no where and simply is not an option in this world. Whilst racing and rushing through the gauntlet in landscapes which are riddled with risk, not forgetting your just as crazy competitors. Users are reminded to put everything on the line when chasing that W! Don’t forget those takedowns!

What we will say that this is a very exciting game and gives you the rewards if you take the risks. It’s the ultimate manifestation of speed and strength, protect your teammates and get those takedowns whilst maintaining the lead. Trust us when we say, you’ll get an adrenaline RUSH!

Within the world of ONRUSH, there are 8 classes of contenders, each having a unique handling style along with their unique abilities and characteristics. Plus they have their own flavour of RUSH!

So, if your interested in this game you can preorder by clicking here!


Before we say any anything. First of all, we got to play Planet Alpha recently and boy is it good! However, we can’t say too much as it was just a build, the game isn’t available until the latter stages of 2018, yet, what we can say is that it looked visually stunning!

Planet Alpha: Plot

Planet Alpha’s plot revolves around a beautiful alien world. So, the story is filled with mystery and danger, as you would expect from an alien planet! So, you’re pursued by enemies and you must use a unique game mechanic, the power of night and day, to survive. As Planet Alpha is richly affected by the solar cycle, as you progress throughout the game, you’ll discover you’ve been given a unique gift. The power to manipulate night and day. You must use this power intelligently to your advantage to progress as effectively and as quickly as possible.

Your character awakes on this alien world, injured, alone and left to your own devices to venture across this planet. Scaling the beautiful and varied, sometimes treacherous terrain to survive. Consequently creating an insanely rich landscape on which this incredible story lives on.

Interested?  We know we are! Yet, unfortunately this amazing game, Planet Alpha is available in Q3 of 2018 – (PC, PS4, XBOX One and Nintendo Switch) So we wait with baited breath! After all they do say that all good things comes to those that wait. We are hugely confident that this will be a very good thing to wait for! Planet Alpha appears to be one of those sleeper titles that just gets you hooked from the very first play!

What is Strange Brigade?

Strange Brigade is your next favourite game! That’s what it is!

Strange Brigade takes users to places that they have never been before. The Plot? Well, simply there are four remote corners of the British Empire. What these remote corners entails no one knows as the shadows linger at their deepest. Who knows about these places the best? The servants of The Crown do and there are some supernatural beings that exist in these places!

Therefore it’s time to introduce the Strange Brigade! It is here where users are taken on an exotic safari, it’s dangerous and few dare to even embark on such an adventure. Why? As few return! As you go along this treacherous safari, you encounter civilisations that have once been forgotten by society, yet they’re fantastic within their own right, all while being shrouded in mystery! Go on adventures that take you to dark tombs and battle unimaginable evil!

Strange Brigade: Plot

You take on one of four adventurers or explorers. Each of the characters available to you have their own special powers, weapons and even tactics! The campaign takes you across a 1930’s era landscape and play with up to 4 friends along this action packed safari! However, as with many exotic plots, be aware of fighting armies of mythological characters that have been unleashed by an ancient Egyptian ruler: Seteki The Witch Queen. She’s so evil she has been wiped from hieroglyphs! So beware! To help you along the way there are secret caves around the safari. Why are these so special? Well within these caves there’s buried riches. Find these to help you along the way!
