INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The large gamers’ convention that threatened to leave Indiana earlier this year over a divisive religious objections law is expanding in Indianapolis.
Gen Con announced Thursday it has reached an agreement to expand its events space into Lucas Oil Stadium for its 49th convention next August. The event already draws more than 50,000 game enthusiasts to the Indiana Convention Center each year.
The stadium will host several large events including the True Dungeon events. True Dungeon is described as a large-scale, life-size game experience in an immersive environment where participants can battle monsters and solve puzzles. The 2016 version will offer an expedition through lava caverns and a mission across an underground city.
A corridor connects the convention center to Lucas Oil Stadium directly to its south.
