Microsoft, Gaming and Libations

Watch us LIVE on

Tonight, we'll be giving away a copy of Sonic Mania for Xbox One to a lucky follower of our Mixer channel LIVE during the stream.

  • We'll use a raffle system to make sure we're giving keys to people who aren't AFK.
  • You must be following the channel to be eligible. The raffle will ignore users who aren't following!
  • We'll give out the Xbox Game Pass towards the end for followers only!

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a third-person shooter with a Hunger Games-like twist. 100 players drop into a large open map and must fight for survival, or die trying. All of your weapons and gear must be procured on-site, and there are no respawns - once you die, that's it. The playable area constantly shrinks too, forcing players into increasingly close quarters. PUBG (as it's affectionately known) is coming to Xbox One before the end of 2017, too!

For now, all you need to do is head to our Mixer channel at and follow! When the stream begins, jump in on the live chat.

We'll give away the key towards the end of the show.

We'll also field some questions from the audience, so, even if you already own the game, sign up for Mixer and come listen to us talk about Surface, Xbox One X, and beyond!

For those curious, we're aiming for a 90-minute air time, but honestly, we have no idea how long it will go. So grab a drink and join in on the fun to find out!
