Go hands-on with the Xbox One X this weekend in Sydney

In celebration of the impending release of the Xbox One X, Microsoft is holding a special hands-on this Sunday. From 12pm AEST-6pm AEST, fans will have the chance to go hands-on with the Xbox One X at the flagship Microsoft Store in Sydney.

Both Forza Motorsport 7 and Super Lucky’s Tale will be playable ahead of their launch dates. This limited time, one day only event will be the first time Australian fans will get a chance to play the Xbox One X. To register your interest in the event you’ll need to head to the Facebook Event page.


If you don’t get a chance to play Forza Motorsport 7 this Sunday, then you won’t have to wait long as a demo is available now for Xbox One. The release date for the full game is October 3, 2017. To download the demo, head to the Microsoft Games Store.

The demo features three unique racing experiences in ForzaMotorsport 7, showcasing the depth and breadth of the experiences available in the game. Drive the Forza Motorsport 7 cover car – the Porsche 911 GT2 RS – to the brand-new Dubai circuit and experience the thrill of navigating the Jebel Hafeet Pass, one of the most famous driving roads in the world. Or, pilot the massive Mercedes-Benz Tankpool racing truck to victory at the high-speed Mugello circuit in Italy.

For drivers who want the ultimate test, the Nissan NISMO GT-R LM is available for a race at the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit. Here, fans will be challenged to handle the ‘Ring’s complex corners and elevation changes, while also tackling the dynamic track conditions that will make racing in Forza Motorsport 7 so breathtaking. Racing through rainstorms laced with thunder and lightning make for a visual showcase and for a challenge like no other – where dynamic puddles grow and shrink with the intensity of the rain.

The Forza Motorsport 7 demo will feature assists that will allow players to dial in the difficulty the way they see fit; and for PC players there will performance options to adjust the experience to each player’s PC performance capabilities.

To get your chance to play Forza Motorsport 7 in 4K on the Xbox One X, head to the Microsoft Store at 188 Pitt Street, Sydney on Sunday, September 24, 2017, between 12pm AEST and 6pm AEST.

Xbox One X launches November 7, 2017.
