Microsoft has some big Xbox One plans for the 2014 Comic-Con International: San Diego, with a series of panels at the massive pop culture gathering along with a way for its 125,000 attendees to play preview versions of a number of future games for the console.

Microsoft will be hosting four panels during Comic-Con, which will be held July 24-27. Two of the panels are Halo related. One will offer up information about Halo: The Master Chief Collection, the Xbox One bundle of Halo 1-4 that's due out this fall. The other panel will revealed the first information on Halo: Nightfall, the live action digital series that will be included as part of the Master Chief Collection package.

Yet another panel will focus on one of the Xbox One's biggest exclusive titles for 2014, the open world action game Sunset Overdrive. Finally, Microsoft will host a panel centering on its upcoming documentary "Atari: Game Over", that looks at the fall of the game console company in the early 1980s that will be shown exclusively on Xbox Live later in 2014.

In addition to the panels, over 20 upcoming Xbox One games will be available in preview form for Comic-Con attendees to play at the Xbox Lounge in the Manchester Grand Hyatt, next to the San Diego Convention Center. Microsoft and Major League Gaming will also host a number of "walk up and play" tournaments during the convention.

Are you one of the lucky folks attending Comic-Con 2014 this year and if so do you plan to check out the Xbox One content during the event?
