By Rebecca Smith, 1 month ago
During the last episode of Inside xbox, Microsoft promised news on their upcoming E3 2019 Xbox Fanfest experience. They delivered, and starting on June 9th, players will get priority access to the Xbox E3 2019 Briefing before getting access to the main E3 showcase over the following three days, and a range of free goodies.

Xbox FanFest: E3 2019

Xbox FanFest: E3 2019 begins at 9:00 a.m. PDT on Sunday, June 9th. Up to 700 players will get an early check in and prime seating at the Xbox E3 2019 Briefing. The following evening of June 10th will then allow those players to get their hands on the games at the show at the Fan Showcase held in downtown Los Angeles. Here, they'll also get the chance to meet the developers, teams from other studios, and Xbox influencers, and they'll receive a Secret Gear Backpack that's "chock full of surprises". Finally, the ticket will include access to the E3 Expo on all three days.

Tickets will cost US$45 but you'll need a dose of luck to get one. Tickets will be allocated through a random draw. Players with an Xbox Live Gamertag who are over 21 can submit their name via the submission website from 9:00 a.m. PT tomorrow, April 19th. Names can be submitted until 12:00 p.m. PDT on April 24th. Once Microsoft has verified the gamertags on the list, they'll choose 300 winners in a draw beginning on April 25th. The winners will be able to purchase up to two tickets each.


Microsoft has revealed that all money they raise from ticket sales will benefit a charity that they'll announce "in the near future". There will also be "a special moment at E3 where FanFest attendees will get to see first-hand how their money will turn into something amazing for others".

If you wish to attend Xbox Fanfest at E3, make sure to keep your eyes open for the submission website tomorrow.
