San Diego's annual Comic-Con takes place this week and it looks like Microsoft will be there as always, celebrating comics, gaming, and pop culture with a slew exclusive gear, panels, celebrities, and more.
If you're attending the convention, the company will be occupying booth number 100 in Hall A. As mentioned previously, the company will have exclusive merchandise that will only be available at the event. Perhaps what is even cooler is that you will be able to have some of the items customized on the spot with your Gamertag.
During the convention, the Xbox booth will also have developers and designers holding signing sessions. This will be limited to the first 100 people each day, so make sure you get there early. You can check out the signing schedule down below.
Signings (San Diego Comic-Con badge required):
*Brendan Greene (“PlayerUnknown”), Creative Director, PUBG Corp – Thursday, July 19 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. PDT
*Joe Neate, Executive Producer, and Mike Chapman, Design Director, Sea of Thieves – Saturday, July 21 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. PDT
Those that can't make it will still be able to partake in the fun by simply retweeting a tweet from the Xbox Twitter account. By doing so you will be entered to win an Xbox Gear Comic-Con prize pack. Be sure to keep an eye out on the @Xbox and @XboxCanada accounts over the next few days and wait for the tweet to go live.
Also if you are in attendance, be sure to check out the Sea of Thieves panel that will take place on Saturday, July 21. The panel will include special guest Freddie Prinze Jr, who is apparently a huge fan of the game, and Joe Neate, Mike Chapman, Adam Park, and Peter Hentze from Rare. Those that attend the panel will receive a limited-edition Sea of Thieves comic and time-limited exclusive in-game DLC. The panel will take place inside Room 5AB from 1:30 to 2:30 PT.
During the convention, Xbox will be hosting two Live Sessions:
PUBG featuring Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene: On Thursday, July 19 at 5:00 p.m. PDT, PUBG Creative Director Brendan Greene (@PLAYERUNKNOWN) and Microsoft Executive Producer Nico Bihary (@nico_bihary) will join Rukari Austin (@rukizzel) to get their loot on in PUBG’s Miramar map live from inside of a PUBG Bus created by West Coast Customs. That’s right – Xbox, PUBG Corp., and West Coast Customs have teamed up to create a one-of-a-kind, tricked out PUBG Bus which will be home to the livestream and available to see in-person at The Experience at Comic-Con.
Sea of Thieves with Freddie Prinze Jr.: On Saturday, July 21 at 5:00 p.m. PDT, Sea of Thieves fan Freddie Prinze Jr. (@RealFPJr) will sail the high seas with members of the Rare team (and me) in an episode of Xbox Live Sessions that’s sure to test the sea legs of the seasoned actor. Fans at home can tune in and watch on https://mixer.com/Xbox and https://twitch.tv/Xbox.
While most of the above events will require you to have a Comic-Con badge, you'll be happy to know that even if you don't, the folks at Microsoft will still have you covered. The company will be holding “The Experience at Comic-Con” at Petco Park across the street from the convention center, where guests can play Xbox One games, get free goodies, and also win prizes. Comic-Con will take place from July 19-22.
