WATCH: Dara O’Briain’s Go 8 Bit trailer as it returns tonight on Dave
Get ready to delve into the virtual world of gaming for a second time, because Dara O’Briain’s Go 8 Bit returns tonight at 10pm on Dave.
Based on the smash hit live Edinburgh show, Dara O Briain’s Go 8 Bit airs tonight (Monday, May 15) and will see celebrities battle each other at a host of classic and contemporary games. You can watch the trailer for the exciting new series below:
Guests this series include Vernon Kay, Russell Kane, Sara Cox, Lolly Adefope, Richard Osman, Rob Beckett, Edith Bowman, Gemma Cairney, Bec Hill, Elis James, Zoe Lyons, Sara Pascoe, Jon Richardson, Daniel Sloss, Ellie Taylor and Robert Webb.
And they will be playing a varied selection of games, with everything from classics Mega Man 2 and Lemmings, to cult titles such as Octodad and Goat Simulator, up to contemporary bestsellers like Angry Birds and Uncharted 4 featuring on the show.
Oh, and the good news doesn’t stop there! The main show will be followed by a brand new games review programme: Go 8 Bit DLC. So we hope you’re prepared for a whole hour and a half of the ultimate gaming experience.
Go 8 Bit’s resident games expert Ellie Gibson will be on hand beside team captains Steve McNeil and Sam Pamphilon. Gibson said: “I’m hoping it will offer an extended and enhanced user experience, so it’s just like regular DLC, except we’re not asking anyone to pay £7.99 for some new hats.”
UKTV senior commissioning editor Iain Coyle added: “After the great success of Go 8 Bit, it’s a logical move for us to further engage with the gaming audience. Go 8 Bit DLC is a great fun show on its own terms and I’m delighted that we’re also extending our relationship with Ellie, Steve and Sam.”
