ID@Xbox is Microsoft’s way of showing their love and support for the indie game developers and the numbers of games has risen by a lot in the recent time. So if you want to try them out, Microsoft is inviting you all to a Pre-PAX Prime Open House event.
The event in question in being held on Thursday, August 27th from 5:00 to 9:00 PM at Microsoft campus — Building 92, 15010 NE 36th Street, Redmond, United States and everyone over 18 is invited (fans under 18 can come with a parent or guardian).
At the ID@Xbox Open House event, you will be able to “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.”
Even more interestingly, you will be given a chance to play the Halo 5: Guardians Arena Multiplayer too! The 343 Industries developers will be there at the event and not only offer you a hands-on experience but also chat about whatever they can.
