All The Games Xbox Is Bringing To PAX Aus

Play Battlefield V ahead of launch at the Xbox booth.


PAX Aus takes place this week in Melbourne, and now Microsoft has joined PlayStation and Ubisoft in announcing all of the games it will bring to the mega-show.

Microsoft's booth on the show floor will include more than 80 Xbox One X consoles, with unreleased games like Ori and the Will of the Wisps and Battlefield V available to play. For Battlefield V, this will be 32-player multiplayer on the Rotterdam map for Conquest mode.

PUBG will also be playable, featuring the War mode on the new map Sanhok. What's more, Microsoft will have Forza Horizon 4 available to play, while the company is also bringing an actual McLaren 720S to its booth to show off.

A number of indie games will also be playable in Microsoft's booth, including Tunic, Bendy and the Ink Machine, Supermarket Shriek, and Ashen.

Outside of the playable games, Microsoft is hosting an briefing called "Xbox Presents: Gaming for Everyone" at the EB Live Stage on Friday, October 26 at 1 PM. What's more, ID@Xbox boss Chris Charla will be on panel called Indie Dev Support: THE CSR of the Industry at 6 PM that day.

Additionally, Xbox is partnering with the NEXT Exhibit to show off its new Adaptive Controller. The controller will also be available at the Diversity Lounge, where streamer Hand Solo will give a presentation.

PAX Aus kicks off on October 26 with a keynote address by Rhianna Pratchett, who worked on the Tomb Raider reboot and its sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider. She also wrote Mirror's Edge, Heavenly Sword, and the Overlord series. During her PAX Aus keynote, she'll be engaging directly with fans, answering questions about any number of topics.

GameSpot's theatre, the GameSpot Dropbear Theatre, will have programming running Friday through Sunday. We'll be hosting panels on Fortnite's coverage in the mainstream media, voice acting featuring actors from Telltale's The Walking Dead and Fallout 4, and hacking a video game, among other topics. You can see the full programming lineup for the GameSpot Dropbear Theatre here, while a full list of every PAX Aus panel can be seen here.

Also new for this year is that PAX Aus and another big-time Australian gaming show, the EB Expo, are joining forces. PAX Aus three-day tickets are sold out, but you can still buy single-day tickets for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday here on the event's website.
