Forza Motorsport 5: North American fans will get their chance to go hands-on in the Forza Motorsport 5 pits and experience this year’s biggest automotive journey starring the world’s greatest cars and tracks. This is your chance to experience the all-new physics engine and take one of the fastest cars in the world, the McLaren P1 on the fan-favorite Laguna Seca race track.
Battlefield 4: Known for their world-class multiplayer, DICE is bringing Battlefield 4’s epic 64-player battles, vehicular combat and all-out warfare to North American fans this week. Gamers will have a chance to go hands-on with the “Siege of Shanghai” beta launching in early October. With the release of “Battlefield 4″ this holiday, players will experience an all-new level of destruction and dynamic environments with a game-changing concept called Levolution, and for the first time for Battlefield console gamers, 64-players running at 60 frames-per-second on Xbox One.
Killer Instinct: Killer Instinct is back again with classic characters, an enhanced combat system and vivid graphics, reimagined for a new generation on Xbox One. We expect nothing but the best from a title with a pedigree as one of the most beloved fighting games of all time.
In addition to these Xbox One games playable at PAX Prime, Microsoft will also be cycling through 30-minute demos of the following four titles Friday through Monday, starting at 10am and ending at 6pm: Dead Rising 3, Project Spark, Kinect Sports Rivals and Fable Anniversary (in that order).
In the Dead Rising 3 demo, the team from Capcom Vancouver will show fans a demo from the third installment in the blockbuster Dead Rising franchise, available exclusively this November for Xbox One. The demo will feature a special look at the huge variety of combo vehicles in the game like the devastating RollerHawg, a hybrid between a motorcycle and a steamroller that can be used to mow down every zombie in its path. Visit the Xbox booth to see all the zombie-killing fun in action, and pick up some fun audience giveaways.
In the Kinect Sports Rivals demo, Microsoft will be showing the Champion feature and a new sport made possible with the all-new Kinect technology: Wake Racing.
