The Birmingham Memorabilia Expo is heading to Birmingham NEC the 16th and 17th March 2013, and there’s a wide range of reasons why you should head down there.
Have a look below what is going to be in store:
Play Dead Space 3 and Crysis 3
Want another dose of space terror, or a session hunting bad guys through New York with an awesome Nanosuit and bow? You’ve got the chance to play both Dead Space 3 and Crysis 3 this year be heading over to EA’s stand.
Dead Space 3 is the latest installment in the horror series, with Isaac Clarke and newcomer Sgt. John Carver touching down on Tau Volantis. The world is crawling with Necromorphs, and luckily you have the option for co-op action this time.
Crysis 3 sees players return to the fight as Prophet on another quest to save the world (the usual action). New York has been covered in a Nanodome which has turned the metropolis into a thriving jungle. This makes it perfect for using your Nanosuit, equipped with stealth capabilities, and the Predator Bow, making you the deadliest hunter on the planet.
