The PC Gamer Weekender is a month away, find out what's on and get your tickets now

TODO alt text

We're just over a month out from the second ever PC Gamer Weekender and the massive celebration of all things keyboard-and-mouse is looking better by the day.  If you went last year you already know roughly what to expect when the event begins on February 18 at Olympia London, but rest assured that a bunch of new additions are also on their way.

First up is the Developer Stage, which will serve as a central location for demo and developer sessions with the creators themselves. And if you find your phone or other essential devices running on empty as you wander the halls in an elated fugue state, you can stop by the Fireside Bar for a few matches of Hearthstone as you plug in and recharge.

You won't have to wait for developer presentations to see new games, of course. Multiple publishers will be on hand to show off their new games, including a special zone for Sega which will have games like Dawn of War 3, Endless Space 2, and more to play. THQ Nordic will have plenty of playable titles as well, such as sci-fi-fantasy action game ELEX and Spellforce 3.

Advance tickets are currently on sale for Saturday and Sunday (Feb. 18 and 19) day passes, or pick up the Weekender+ pass which gets you full access on both days and some extra goodies besides. Get your tickets early, it's going to be a heckuva good time.
