Xbox detail their PAX Aus plans
Xbox Australia have announced what games and people they are bringing to PAX Australia, which runs from October 26th to the 28th.
For those going for the games, players will get hands on with the Xbox One X and games like Sea of Thieves, Player Unknowns Battlegrounds, Hand of Fate 2 and more. Assassin's Creed Origins will be on the new hardware at the Ubisoft booth, while Middle-earth Shadow of War will be playable over at the Warner Bros booth.
For those looking for the ultimate Sea of Thieves experience, head outside the convention centre and board the Belfast-built, three-masted Polly Woodside. Here would-be pirates can take to the high seas with the highly-anticipated Sea of Thieves – the first time the game has been on show here in Australia.
This year, attendees can also join members of the Xbox international team in the convention centre’s Wombat Theatre on Saturday 28th October to discuss key industry topics. At 11am, Shannon Loftis (General Manager of Xbox Publishing) will be live on stage with local industry experts to discuss Women in Games in Australia , whilst Chris Charla (global head of ID@Xbox) will sit alongside Australian developers to discuss how indie games are taking the world by story in The Power of the Modern Indie at 3pm.
