It sounds pretty awesome and will feature a massive BYOC LAN in addition to themed zones modeled after the four controller button colours of the logo. Red
covers Tournaments ranging from community competition to esports across console and PC, with stage events and prizes to be won. Yellow
is the Expo side of the event with tech and gaming brands covering demos and gear and even "event quests" to complete. Blue
is the creative side, covering content creators, streamers, cosplay, and art. And finally Green
covers Freeplay across all things gaming. The full schedule and partners are still to be announced, but the organisers have outlined what to expect.
