We're delighted to announce that EGX Rezzed will host rounds of competitive Hearthstone! The tournaments will run throughout the event with winners walking away with some super prizes. If you're interested in taking part just head to the Hearthstone on the day to register.

This isn't all the competitive gaming we have for you at EGX Rezzed this year. Our friends at Unequalled Media will be managing the Fight Zone, a stage dedicated to fighting games, with PlayStation 4s and Vitas up for grabs. To find out more about the Fight Zone head to Unequalled Media's website.

If you're a bit more partial to shooters then make sure you head to our Titanfall stand where Epic Gaming will be running daily tournaments on the Xbox One version of EA's new FPS. Awesome Turtle Beach headsets will go to those who come out on top.

Now an established favourite, the competitive Minecraft stand also returns to EGX Rezzed. Take on your friends at the hunger games mod and you could walk away with some very cool Minecraft prizes.

There's still time to register for the Pokemon X and Y Battle Tournament heats too. Whether you're an apprentice Pokemon trainer, an expert, or part of a team, don't be shy, get involved! The eventual winner will claim a trip to Japan so make sure you register here.

Finally, if you're a bit of a retro gamer, you'll be delighted to hear that EGX Rezzed is hosting heats for the Classic Gaming Championships. Check out the CGC website for all the info.
