Kiwis get a first chance playing on the Xbox One X at the Armageddon Expo

16 Oct 2017

The Auckland Armageddon Expo will be the first chance that many New Zealanders will be able to play on Microsoft's new Xbox One X console. 

Xbox NZ has announced that the Auckland Armageddon Expo is the first time Kiwis will be able to experience the power of the Xbox One X console before it launches worldwide on November 7th, 2017. 

Firstly, you can play Forza Motorsport 7 running in 4K at 60fps over at the Samsung Zone. The game will be shown on huge 75 inch large QLED TV screens. This is the best experience for you to play the game.

The other game you can see on the new console is Assassin's Creed Origins. This game is playable at the Ubisoft stand.  

Another cool thing to see at the Armageddon Expo this year are the voices of Master Chief and Cortana. Steve Downes and Jen Taylor will be at the Animation Panel on October 22nd starting at 1pm. 

The Auckland Armageddon Expo is happening at the ASB Showgrounds from October 20th until October 23rd.
