The Southampton Game Fest has confirmed that both the HTC Vive and Samsung’s Gear VR will be showcased by Virtual Umbrella at the Southampton Game Fest 2016.

Along with VR, several tournaments have been added to the lineup including the Pokegym challenge, Mario Kart, Fifa 2016 and more. There have also been some interesting unique exhibitors such as a DOOM workshop added, where DOOM fans can create their own DOOM inspired masks.

The Southampton Game Fest is Hampshire’s only large scale dedicated gaming event, which hopes to bring all the gaming talent in Hampshire under one roof, while raising money for the local hospital’s play fund.

Finally The Hampshire Gaming Hub has been added, a website supported by Hampshire County Council which brings together all things gaming in Hampshire, from gaming lounges to local tournament hosts and streamers.

Founder Patrick Day-Childs said:

“Hampshire (UK) is a brilliant county for gaming. We have industry giants like Multiplay and GAME here, and hundreds of gaming fanatics that host their own tournaments or events. Wherever you go in Hampshire you’ll run into gaming”
