SXSW to Have Titanfall Event; Over 6000 Launch Celebrations Happening Across the World

on February 27, 2014 5:44 PM

March should officially be dubbed “Titanfall appreciation month” with all of the events set for Microsoft and Respawn Entertainment’s Xbox One exclusive game. In addition to all of the midnight launch events, there will be a very special event happening in Austin Texas.

Titanfall will launch on March 11th and on March 10th there will be a huge event for it at this year’s South by Southwest festival which will lead to its midnight launch. Presenting will be Yusuf Mehdi (Xbox Corporate Vice President ) who will be joined by Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella and community manager Abbie Heppe. They will be joined by fans of the game, other developers and of course the SXSW attendees.

The event will take place at 9pm at the Microsoft Studio which is located at 323 Congress Ave. There will be a special musical performance by Childish Gambino. You can also follow Major Nelson and Xbox on Twitter for a chance to win an opportunity to attend.

The event is first come first serve so if you’re unable to get in you can always watch a special Titanfall event that will be streaming on TwitchTV/Xbox that night. This event will run from 10pm-2am CT and will feature Vince Zampella, Abbie Heppe, Rooster Teeth, Geoff Keighley and many more.

Titanfall is easily the biggest game coming out for Microsoft’s Xbox One so it makes sense that they would pull out all of the stops to celebrate its launch.
