Xbox HQ in Redmond, Washington will be opening its doors on August 29th, 2019 from 5PM to 9PM PT for its annual [email protected] Open House. There will be over 50 games from independent developers from across the globe, with 13 new games that Xbox will be announcing at this event. The best part? They will all be playable!
There will be a whole host of activities for fans to enjoy. There will be opportunities to meet these amazing independent developers, talk to members of Microsoft teams that are working on games, attend interesting panels, and free pizza for all to enjoy. Gears 5 will also make an appearance in playable form, meaning anyone there will be able to check it out a few days before it officially releases.
Some of the games that will be on display are:
- Blair Witch
- Conan Chop Chop
- Creature in the Well
- Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
- Touhou Luna Nights
- Genesis Noir
- She Dreams Elsewhere
- Spectrum Break
- Beyond Blue
- Deliver Us The Moon
This is only a small sample of some of the very strong games that will be there. It shows that there are plenty of wonderful experiences to be had outside the triple-A offerings in the market. It also continues to show the commitment that Xbox is making in trying to support independent developers now that Sony is lagging in this department.
If you want to attend this event there are some things to keep in mind. If you’re under the age of 18 you will need a parent or guardian with you, try and RSVP so that Xbox knows how many are going (they need enough pizza), and be sure to come in a comfortable pair of shoes. The address is:
