Microsoft Details Xbox FanFest: E3 2017

Microsoft has revealed details on how players can grab tickets for the 2017 E3 Xbox Fan Fest and become among the first in the world to test Project Scorpio.

Tickets for Xboix FanFest: E3 2017 will go on sale later this week on Wednesday, April 19. The three-day event will grant 500 lucky people the chance to gain entry into Microsoft’s E3 briefing on June 11 as well as having the opportunity to get hands-on with Project Scorpio, as well as upcoming games for the platform on June 12.

To be in with a chance of getting one, Microsoft is releasing 400 tickets on a first-come, first-served basis on April 19. Tickets will be released online in several waves throughout the day. The first wave begins at 6am Pacific. The final 100 will be offered through various promos and givaways that’ll be held in the weeks prior to the event.

In order to be in with a chance of getting one, Microsoft says that applicants must be 21 or older and have an Xbox Live gamertag.

“The return of Xbox FanFest to E3 begins a profound year for Xbox and its fans. When we started doing FanFest a little over 3 years ago, we not only wanted to build rally points around the world for Xbox Nation, but we wanted gamers everywhere to know how deeply important they were to our past, present and future,” Microsoft said in the announcement. 

“Last year, we reached an incredible 13,000 Xbox fans at FanFests around the world. In Mexico, we built a huge Xbox-only event, in Australia we not only took fans drifting to celebrate the launch of Forza Horizon 3 but we took them to Bondi Beach for a little Gears of War 4, and at gamescom, we shut down our booth so FanFest attendees could play all the hottest Xbox exclusives. This year, we’re looking to do even more, with more surprises, to show the world Xbox is ready for the fans in 2017.”

To grab a ticket, head to the Xbox FanFest website.
