Microsoft opens its Redmond campus to gamers Aug. 28 to demo ID@Xbox games

Microsoft will allow gamers to visit their main headquarters in Redmond, Washington on Thursday, August 28 so they can get a chance to test drive a bunch of upcoming ID@Xbox games for the Xbox One console.

Microsoft's head of Xbox Live programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb posted up word that the event will take place at the Microsoft Building 92, located at 15010 NE 36th Street in Redmond, Washington, from 6 to 8:30 pm on Thursday. During that time, gamers will be able to check out over 25 upcoming ID@Xbox games, made by small indie developers for the Xbox One. There's no word on which games will be shown at the event.

Some people may be arriving in nearby Seattle on Thursday to attend the big PAX Prime gaming convention that same weekend. Hryb says those folks will be able to catch a free ride to the Microsoft campus from the Seattle Convention Center area on board the Sunset Overdrive bus. His blog post has more information on where and when the buses will arrive.

If you live in the Seattle area, or are going to be in the city for PAX Prime, will you be taking advantage of this cool opportunity to check out some upcoming ID@Xbox games?
