Epic, Ubisoft and Motion Twin headline ConnectsX track at Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2018

A wealth of talented companies will be speaking at this year's Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki PC track.

Epic, Ubisoft's RedLynx studio as well as Dead Cells maker Motion Twin are among the names on stage at PGC Helsinki 2018, with other speakers including Fake Fish and Rival Games.

We'll be revealing more about the speakers in a series of Q&As in the run-up to the show. 

ConnectsX is the PC track at this year's show and will be taking place on the afternoon of September 11th. We still have a limited number of speaker and panel slots to fill, so if you fancy coming along and sharing your insight into the PC games market, please get in touch.

This track is being sponsored by Unreal Engine.

As well as the bevvy of fantastic talks, there's a lot for the PC games market at Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki. The PC Indie Pitch is returning to the show - with developers being able to showcase their games to an audience of industry professionals. In addition, there's the Big Indie Zone where studios can show their wares to the 1,200 folks at the show.

As well as PC, there is a wealth of content about the mobile games market - if that's your thing - as well as where blockchain and the games market meet… if that's also your thing.

Oh, and it wouldn't be a Steel Media event without a party and the infamous Global Connects Party once again serves as a hub to network, catch up with old friends and enjoy Finland's infamous Long Drink. And whatever that cognac vodka concoction Mikael Haveri from Housemarque conned us into drinking last year.

Mid-term prices are ending next week, but for now there's a chance to save up to 300 bucks.

Tickets for the show can be purchased here.
