Here’s what you need to know:
When: Thursday, July 24th at 9:00 PM (open til Midnight)
Where: Manchester Hyatt San Diego, 2nd Floor, Seaport Ballroom
(look for the line labeled “Xbox Community/Major Nelson”)

What you can do: Play Sunset Overdrive, Evolve, Forza Horizon 2, Fable Legends, Ori and The Blind Forest, Madden NFL 15 and much more (!) Talk to the devs. See and be seen.

See you Thursday!
