Microsoft's next-generation video game console is well on its way, with the official launch date of November 22nd. Until this date comes and goes, consumers around the world will be eagerly anticipating the new console and what content will be included. To quench some of the thirst prior to launch, Microsoft will be taking the Xbox One on tour at numerous cities and events around the world.
Beginning October 1st through the end of the year, Microsoft will be sending the Xbox team to over 75 cities around the world with a series of experiential events. The "Arena One" tour will enable folk in the US, Canada and Europe to check out the Xbox One line-up of titles, while the Xbox One "Test Drive" will see the console hitting the road with hands-on gameplay in "unexpected places."
The Xbox One titles that will be displayed will include Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, Killer Instinct, Dead Rising 3, Crimson Dragon, Max: Curse of the Brotherhood, LocoCycle and more. Attendance to these events will be free of charge, but space is reported to be limited. Here are the Arena One Tour dates:
- Philadelphia: 10.3–10.6
- Paris: 10.10–10.13
- Toronto: 10.10–10.13

So that's the Arena One tour out the way, what about the Xbox One Test Drive? Across the US, Canada, UK, Germany and France, Xbox will take a road trip across the countries, appearing at festivals, universities, retail centres and more. Think unexpected places and the next-generation console will more than likely be heading there.
