You can expect more tournaments, more indie games and lots of great guests. As always, you can follow us on social media for the latest info.
XPO is a festival for gamers, fans, developers and game industry leaders. Join thousands of other gamers in Tulsa for a packed expo floor, panels and speakers, and a first look at new gaming technology. XPO 2016 included panel discussions with guests from Blizzard, Epic Games, Daybreak Game Company, Boss Key Productions, GamesRadar+, and more. Attendees also got to try out the HTC Vive and and Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets and play great games before they’re available to the public. They also saw the fabled Nintendo PlayStation prototype console in person and take in live concerts with incredible gaming musicians. Other highlights included a full tabletop gaming library, tournaments, cosplay contests, a retro gaming lounge, exclusive after-parties with live music, and general game badassery.

Keynote Speaker: Tramell Isaac – Art Director for Boss Key Productions, Tramell’s credits include the PlanetSide series, Neverwinter Nights 2, and the legendary post-apocalyptic RPG, Fallout. He even helped create the Fallout series’ most iconic character, Vault Boy! Tramell brings with him years of high-profile game development experience, and we’re happy to have him as XPO’s keynote speaker. Boss Key Studio was founded in 2014 by veteran developer Cliff Bleszinski, the man behind Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Gears of War, and Jazz Jackrabbit.

Panels, Music, Games – For retro fans, we’ll have the mythical Nintendo PlayStation prototype console on display, including a panel with its owner, Dan Diebold. If you want something brand new, stop by Indie Alley, our showcase of awesome independent games, featuring everything from old-school action to the latest in virtual reality. Or, watch as the best Rocket League teams compete for a piece of the $10,000 prize pool in the LegionBattles 10K, which is sure to be one of the most exciting events in esports.

However you like to play, thousands of dollars in cash and prizes is up for grabs. And don’t forget to take in a concert while you’re here. We’ve got some amazing video game musicians coming to XPO, including the legendary “chip-hop” artist Mega Ran, old-school Nintendo rockers Bit Brigade, and YouTube sensation Brentalfloss. The fun doesn’t stop when the expo doors close, either. After hours, XPO will spill into some of the hottest venues in downtown Tulsa, hosting live music and late night fun – free for all ticket holders. And this is just the beginning – we’ll be announcing even more speakers, musicians and attractions soon!
