In years past, Xbox FanFest has given the biggest Xbox players a chance to celebrate the latest Xbox games and play together in-person, but the ongoing pandemic has made that impossible. However, Microsoft is moving Xbox FanFest entirely online with a series of global events, giving you the chance to participate in meet-and-greets, win prizes, and more. In order to participate, you’ll need to register, and we’ll run you through the steps to do so.
How To Register For Xbox FanFest
In order to register for Xbox FanFest, you must have an Xbox profile and be at least 18 years old. It’s eligible to anyone worldwide, though activities and communications are going to only be in English.
To register, beginning on October 12 at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET, you’ll want to visit the official Xbox FanFest page. From there, you’ll be able to see schedules for upcoming activities and you’ll also receive emails on new FanFest information.
You’ll receive 100 Microsoft Rewards points for completing your registration, and more points will also be available for specific activities during the duration of FanFest. Additionally, certain activites are open to everyone, including those who didn’t register, and they will have special bonuses for those who did register. These will be labeled Xbox FanFest Plus Ups.
Cost Of Xbox FanFest
The basic registration for Xbox FanFest is free, and many of the events you’ll get access to will also be free. However, Microsoft said there may be a ticket price associated with certain events, stopping short of estimating what that price will be.
You may also gain access to Xbox official gear purchases that won’t be available to anyone else. We expect some of these to be purchased items, while others could be through sweepstakes.
