The second annual XPO Game Festival aims to bring gamers, developers, industry leaders, and personalities together at the nexus of America’s Heartland in a celebration of video game culture. Featuring a dedicated tabletop gaming area, retro gaming lounge, laser tag, panels and a full-sized expo hall, XPO Game Festival is sure to leave attendees with happy, lasting memories once again.
Matt Stockman (Event Manager, XPO Game Festival): “We’re thrilled to give our attendees a bigger and better XPO. We learned a lot last year, and we can’t wait to implement some of the helpful suggestions we received. You can tell that there’s a ton of excitement around here. XPO is a very visible example of Tulsa’s vast yet somewhat untapped potential to host innovative startups and world-class game studios.”
Tickets are now available online and can be purchased through Eventbrite (see “Pricing & Availability” below). Until September 1, Early Bird weekend passes can be purchased for $65. Single Day (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) passes are available for $35 each.
The inaugural XPO Game Festival took place in September 2016 with more than 1,600 attendees — featuring panel discussions with guests from Blizzard, Epic Games, Daybreak Game Company, Boss Key Productions, GamesRadar+, thatgamecompany, and more. Attendees had the opportunity to demo games on the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift VR headsets and play great indie games before they were available to the public. Even the fabled Nintendo PlayStation prototype console made an appearance. Other highlights consisted of a full tabletop gaming library, tournaments, cosplay contests, a retro gaming lounge, exclusive after-parties (with live music), and more.
