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’s first game will be Lawbreakers, an intense multiplayer shooter that has become one of the most highly anticipated games of 2016. (@PS_TRay)
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. Feel like a little competition yourself? Duke it out in a Smash Bros tournament, shoot for the high score in our Retro Lounge arcade, or go for first place in our cosplay contest. 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!
