EA is releasing two of the most anticipated AAA shooters this year – Battlefield 1, set in WW1 and Titanfall 2, set ‘after many generations into the future.’ Titanfall likes to keep things vague.
TwitchCon begins this weekend in San Diego and goes on until October 2nd. EA and Xbox are going to bring a whole bunch of Twitch and YouTube celebrities to play against TwitchCon attendees. Oh yeah, if you are at TwitchCon you can play against these folks.
The Xbox Team will also be giving away a whole bunch of goodies to the people at the Con as well as those watching the live stream.
There’s a whole bunch of things to be given away by EA and Xbox. From Xbox Live Gold membership to EA Access membership, maybe even a free controller from the Xbox Design Lab – where you can customize every bit of it for yourself. These will be given to those who join in on the live stream.
In addition to the live stream giveaways, Xbox is also giving away four Xbox One S consoles in the TwitchCon Sweepstakes.
Four lucky winners will get an Xbox One S each. Some of these are special editions as well as exclusive editions. Here’s the list:
- Standard Xbox One S (2 TB)
- Xbox One S Battlefield 1 Special Edition Bundle (1 TB)
- Custom Battlefield 1 Xbox One S (500 GB)
- Custom Titanfall 2 Xbox One S (500 GB)
The Sweepstakes start from September 30th and end on October 9th.
