“The games will be presented via a dedicated showcase site available from the start of the festival, with associated store promotions at digital retailers, and online profile videos produced by London Games Festival,” reads the festival’s website.

“Some of the titles will release special content during the festival period while others have free demos available. For in-person attendees, the games will be showcased at a special Trafalgar Square Exhibition – while some individual titles are also on show elsewhere across the festival.”

The London Games Festival will run from April 1 to April 10. For more details on visiting in person, see this page.
