As a follow-up to the recent announcement of the pre-orders for the Microsoft Xbox One X opening, Microsoft have also announced its upcoming pre-PAX event, titled ID@Xbox, on 31st August will feature more than 50 titles available to play, including several mixed reality (MR) titles, along with videogames running on the Xbox One X.
Though wording on the details of the event are somewhat vague, there are according to the announcement, plans for several titles compatible with the upcoming Windows 10 MR headsets being available to play, and despite the event being primarily Xbox focussed. Microsoft have yet to confirm any virtual reality (VR) or MR capability for the Xbox One console in any iteration, so with the event is featuring MR having it under the Xbox brand banner is unusual.
The event will be free and does not require a PAX ticket, though pre-registration through the event website will be required. Microsoft have said there will be a raffle to win prizes such as a ticket to PAX, a ID@Xbox Controller Pillow or an Xbox One S. Celebrity guests are also expected, though the identity of these guests has not yet been revealed. ID@Xbox will take place at Microsoft’s Redmond Campus at the Visitor’s Centre in Building 92.
