Prior to the event, the company will start off by hosting a special episode of their Inside Xbox livestream on Mixer, Twitch, YouTube, and Twitter on November 14. X019 will begin on the same day, and will carry over a period of three days until November 16.
If you’re interested in purchasing tickets, the company is selling up to two per person who wish to participate the Xbox FanFest for £19 each, however the event is closed to those under the age of 18. Tickets will also be sold for the same rate £19 each for up to four per person wishing to join the following two days, with each ticket covering either the morning or afternoon of each day. Those between 13 and 18 can also attend the last two days, although a parent or guardian will be required.
As far as what to expect, the company says this will be the “biggest Xbox event we’ve ever hosted in the UK.” Attendees will be able to enjoy hands-on replay of world premier titles, panels from the Xbox Games Studios developers, meet-and-greets and autographs from some of the developers, an exclusive Xbox Official Gear Store.
Microsoft says that the proceeds from purchases of the tickets will go to SpecialEffects for helping people with physical disabilities to be able to play video games.
