Last year, we were able to open our doors to a large group of fans to showcase some a bunch of great ID@Xbox titles. The event was such a rousing success that we knew we had to do it again, which is why we’re happy to announce that our Pre-PAX Open House is going to be even bigger and better than it was last year. We’re going to have more than 50 upcoming ID@Xbox titles, including eight new announces and several first playables. As an added bonus, you’ll even have a chance to go hands-on with some awesome Halo 5: Guardians Arena Multiplayer.
Best of all, this free event is open to the public and PAX badges aren’t required to attend.
Here’s what you need to know:
When: Thursday, August 27th from 5:00 to 9:00 PM
Where: Microsoft campus — Building 92
15010 NE 36th Street
Redmond, WA 98052
Who: Xbox fans 18 and older (under 18 allowed with parent/guardian)
What you can do: Play more than 50 upcoming ID@Xbox titles, including eight new announces and several first playables! Meet the developers and play some of our most highly anticipated titles, including Cuphead, The Flame in the Flood, Pit People, ARK: Survival Evolved, We Happy Few, SpeedRunners and Warhammer: Vermintide. Collect limited edition buttons for each game you play (while supplies last), and even pose for a picture with StudioMDHR’s Cuphead! See the Microsoft campus and stop by the Visitor Center to explore everything from the latest Microsoft Research innovations to the very first personal computer.
Additionally, the Open House will be the only place for fans to play Halo 5: Guardians Arena Multiplayer, get to hang out with members of 343 Industries and have the chance to meet Halo special guests.
Admission cost: Absolutely FREE (PAX passes are not required)
Transportation: Parking is available for FREE on the Microsoft campus, and complimentary buses will also provide transportation from the Washington State Convention Center to building 92. The first buses will leave the convention center at 4:30 PM. There will be signs and staff wearing red shirts guiding people onto the buses driving between the convention center and Microsoft campus.
