Xbox is bringing games, panels and more to Comic-Con

Are you lucky enough to be at Comic-Con this year in San Diego? Then you're about to get even more stoked now that Xbox will be there. Microsoft is sending team Xbox down to San Diego to set up an Xbox lounge and booth. Games will be playable, you'll get your first look at the television series Halo: Nightfall and celebrities will be around all weekend.

Games

The Xbox Lounge at the Manchester Grand Hyatt will have nearly 25 games for you to play. Check out upcoming titles like Ori and the Blind Forest, Sunset Overdrive, Evolve and others!

There will also be a variety of walk-up-and-play tournaments for Titanfall, Killer Instinct and Forza Motorsport 5. These tournaments are 'powered' by MLG and will also take place at the Xbox Gaming Lounge also in the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel.

Panels

What's a trip to Comic-Con without a panel or two? Xbox will have a few of those as well. There are panels for Halo: Nightfall First-Look, The Fusion of Art and Style in Sunset Overdrive, Halo: The Master Chief Collection Developer Panel and Digging E.T. - Behind the Scenes of the Xbox Originals Documentary, "Atari: Game Over". Check the source link below for the dates, times and locations for the Xbox panels. We'd personally go check out Nightfall!

Partnerships

Xbox is also teaming up with a few other entities to reach fans one-on-one while at Comic-Con. You should check actress Kristin Bauer van Straten from True Blood at the Xbox Lounge. Pedro Pascal (plays Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones) will also be at the Xbox Lounge during Comic-Con. You'll also find events with WWE and Hulu.

Nerdist Xbox ONe

Bonus: Win one of twenty custom Xbox One consoles at the Xbox Lounge! Check the screenshot above to see what one looks like.

Anyone lucky enough to be at Comic-Con next week? Sound off below with what are you looking forward to checking out.
