Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) today announced the first ever Frontier Expo, taking place October 7 at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.
FX2017 brings together the players and developers of Elite Dangerous and Planet Coaster for a day of gaming and celebration. Frontier Expo will be Frontier’s biggest ever community event and the next step in the studio’s journey as an independent developer and publisher of triple-A videogames.
Frontier Expo is Frontier’s key press and community event in 2017, featuring eagerly-anticipated announcements regarding the future of Elite Dangerous, what’s next for Planet Coaster, and an exclusive in-depth look at Frontier’s as-yet unannounced third title in headline stage presentations hosted by Frontier developers.
The day-long event will also host a selection of special guest speakers and world-leading experts who will explore the real-world science and discovery behind Frontier’s games in a series of captivating talks, while developer-hosted demos will take a deep dive into Frontier’s games exclusively for players in attendance.
Visitors to Frontier Expo will collect exclusive physical and digital merchandise for Elite Dangerous and Planet Coaster, and experience panels and exhibits available only at FX2017. For those following along at home, FX2017’s key announcements and action from the showfloor will be livestreamed to the world.
“Frontier Expo is all about Frontier’s incredible community. Our journey into the world of self-publishing wouldn’t have been possible without the terrific communities that have assembled around Elite Dangerous and Planet Coaster. We’ve held community events before but we’ve never had the opportunity to celebrate our current games with the players and look to the studio’s future all at one event. We can’t wait to meet everyone this October.” – David Braben, Frontier CEO
