There are just a handful of places you can go in the UK to get some hands-on time with high-end PC gaming gear, and more often than not, it involves travelling. ASUS is looking to change that with the launch of the ROG Battle Bus, intent on delivering the ROG experience to all corners of the UK.
To start off with, the ROG Bus will be making appearances at events like EGX in September, or Insomnia. However, as ASUS’s Thomas Jenner explained to us earlier today, the ROG team is “targeting a new location every week, ensuring to hit every county over the next 12 months”. The bus will appear at music events, air shows, LANs and plenty of other venues.
We managed to have a peek at what the ROG Bus has to offer earlier today, you can check it out in our gallery below:

The bus is armed with plenty of high-end gaming laptops and desktops, complimented by ASUS’s own ROG monitors and peripherals. This is a huge project for the ROG team here in the UK, and they are open to suggestions for where the bus should head next.
Schools, colleges, universities, town centres, shopping centres- nothing is off limits, so feel free to add some suggestions in the comments. It’s a good opportunity to get some hands-on time with some of the best PC gaming gear on the market, and if you’re over 18, there’s a free can of Red Bull in it for you.
KitGuru Says: The ROG bus is geared up and ready to tour the country, bringing the action to all corners for a change, and not just settling for a few major cities. Where would you like to see the ROG bus head to?
