Come to the Costa Mesa, California Microsoft Store Feb. 9 for its Evolve launch event

If you are in the Costa Mesa, California, area on Monday, Feb. 9, you might want to drop by the Microsoft Store at South Coast Plaza. It will be hosting a special launch event for the upcoming Xbox One sci-fi first person shooter Evolve on that day.

Microsoft's Xbox Live programming head Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb will be there, along with members of Evolve's development team at Turtle Rock Studios who will take part in a Q&A session and sign items for fans. The event begins at 9 p.m. and Microsoft plans to raffle a number of prizes to select store visitors "including an Xbox One, Xbox Live cards, Xbox Music cards and Xbox One controllers."

The first 150 people in line to buy Evolve during the Microsoft Store event will also get a special gift bag with an exclusive poster, LED glasses (whatever those are), and a neoprene Xbox One controller case. People who pre-order the game will also get a $10 Microsoft Store gift card. The event will end around midnight when Evolve officially goes on sale. That's when everyone gets their game and goes home to play it.
