Coming to fans from their new home in London’s Rocket Complex from October 6th-8th, Revolution 2017 is the group’s third annual competitive gaming event. The best gamers from all over the EU will be coming together to compete in ten separate tournaments. Fans can watch the best of the best duke it out in Gundam Versus, Tekken 7, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, and more!

But you don’t have to be a hardcore gamer to find something at Revolution. There will be plenty of side tournaments, as well as casual gaming areas for those who enjoy the hobby but aren’t quite ready to make it a career. There will also be panels and showcases for upcoming titles, a lounge, and many more ways to enjoy yourself on site.

If you do consider yourself a top-tier gamer, though, you can sign up online. A weekend pass is £30 with single day passes at £12 (regardless of day). Pre-registration also lets you pick which tournaments you’re signing up for. Any questions you might have about the tournament can be answered in their extensive rules section. The page gives a broad overview, as well as specific rule sets for individual tournaments. Tournament entry is £5 each, to be collected on site.

If you’re feeling a little iffy about your skills, though, remember it’s not just about winning. Revolution 2017 will also be the first time many of the games on the docket are available to play in the UK; you’ll also be able to get your hands on a Nintendo Switch in the Pokkén DX tournament, plus try out the latest Marvel vs. Capcom installment.

Hit up the official site for a full list of games, tournament times, and more!
