MCM Expo Stage schedule revealed

Sleeping Dogs, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Steel Battalion and more confirmed; times and details inside!


It's nearly time for MCM Expo, and we're finally ready to reveal (most) of the games we have on show, a couple of surprises notwithstanding.

Think your Trials skills are hot enough to best the GSUK team or other MCM Expo attendees?
Think your Trials skills are hot enough to best the GSUK team or other MCM Expo attendees?

We'll start things off on Friday with an open session letting YOU challenge the GameSpot UK team live on stage at Trials Evolution, before giving you a chance to get Namco Webcomics artwork signed by the team from Shiftylook. We close out the day by giving you a chance to see the game formerly known as True Crime: Hong Kong, Sleeping Dogs, and put your questions to the game's producer.

On Saturday the action on our stage will kick off bright and early, with a surprise event at 9.30 a.m., followed by a Q&A session with the producer of the recently delayed Aliens: Colonial Marines. Bioware stop by at 11 a.m. to show off upcoming changes in Star Wars: The Old Republic, and take your questions. After that Jagex will be taking the stage to show off Transformers Universe at 12 p.m. and field your queries to round off the first session of the day.

After a short break, TT Games will be showing off LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes at 1 p.m., before we host the finale of Tecmo Koei's Dead or Alive 5 Tournament. Don't forget: if you want to sign up for the tournament proper, head over to the Tecmo Koei booth from 11 a.m.

At 2 p.m. Ubisoft will be back with Sleeping Dogs, while at 3.30 p.m. we'll have a demo and Q&A session with a game that we can't reveal… yet. At 4 p.m Capcom will be demonstrating hotly anticipated Kinect tank game Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, and answering your questions.

At 4.30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Namco Bandai will be showing off Tales of Graces f and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch to finish the day.

Sunday starts slightly later, with Namco coming back to show off Dragon Ball Z for Kinect at 10.30 a.m. before Jagex hosts a session at 11 a.m. about the voice acting talent present in RuneScape. From 11.30 a.m. you'll be able to get your hands on upcoming Wii game Beat The Beat--better known to some as Rhythm Heaven Fever--when Nintendo drops by just before lunch.

Capcom will be coming by with Dragon's Dogma at 1.30 p.m. to show it off and answer your questions. 2.00 pm will see Namco Webcomics returning to host a Dig Dug Tournament, while 3.30 p.m. will give you a chance to learn some more about Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Finally Namco will be showing off Tales of Graces f for a second time at 4 p.m. to close out the show.

And if that isn't enough, we've also got Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Dead or Alive 5, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Quantum Conundrum for you to have a go on, as well as a prize on offer for the best Trials: Evolution performance of the weekend.

I wish I could go but hopefully one day. Will there be a Live Stream of MCM Expo?

Avatar image for JamieHubble

I'll be there Sunday :) See you then GameSpot

Cool, there is a schedule out. Does this mean we can watch it 'live'?

Or does this mean that there will be a link stating 'live', but in fact, when you click on the the link the new is not 'live'... which is usually the case.

Will there be a video stream? If not, too bad. If yes YAY!

@Gamerboy006 There will indeed. Head to the MCM event section. Of course all events will be available on-demand if you can't make the live stream.
