Aaron Greenberg was on-hand at Inside Xbox Gamescom to reveal the first details of XO19, a three-day event in London dubbed “a celebration of Xbox” and “the biggest inside Xbox show of the year,” running from Nov. 14-16.

The show is to take place at the Copper Arena; tickets are £19 (with proceeds going to charity) for those that want to attend the event live, but you’ll also be able to tune in to the Inside Xbox Live event on Mixer and watch it from the comfort of your own home, too.

  • World premiere hands-on gameplay of the biggest and best new games.
  • Panels with the brightest and best creative minds from our Xbox Game Studio teams.
  • Unique activations and experiences to bring the universe of Xbox to life.
  • Developer meet-and-greets and autograph sessions.
  • An on-site Xbox Official Gear Store featuring exclusive X019 gear you will not be able to buy anywhere else.
