Over the past few years, Xbox FanFest has given Xbox’s greatest players the chance to celebrate the latest Xbox games and play together in person, but the ongoing pandemic has made it impossible. However, Microsoft is moving Xbox FanFest fully online with a series of global events, giving you the chance to participate in meet and greets, win prizes, and more. To participate, you will need to register and we will walk you through the steps to do so.
With the Xbox Series X and Series S just a few weeks away, it should be a very exciting remainder of 2020, so you won’t want to miss it.
How to register for Xbox FanFest
To register for Xbox FanFest, you must have an Xbox profile and be at least 1
To register, starting tomorrow, October 12 at 6 p.m. PT / 9 p.m. ET, we recommend that you visit the official Xbox FanFest page. From there, you’ll be able to see schedules for upcoming activities, and you’ll also get emails about new FanFest information. We don’t expect you to be there as the second registration opens like you did to pre-order an Xbox Series X / S system.
You will receive 100 Microsoft Rewards points for completing registration and more points will also be available for specific activities during the duration of the FanFest. In addition, some activities are open to everyone, including those who have not registered, and will have special bonuses for those who have registered. These will be labeled Xbox FanFest Plus Ups. With Mixer discontinued, it’s possible this could be a new way Microsoft is offering giveaways for watching press conferences and other events.
Cost of Xbox FanFest
Basic registration for Xbox FanFest is free, and many of the events you get access to will also be free. However, Microsoft said there may be a ticket price associated with certain events, pausing before estimating what the price will be.
You can also access Xbox official gear purchases that won’t be available to anyone else. We expect some of these to be purchased items, while others may be through lotteries. In any case, you will need to be registered to know when the lotteries will take place.
