Xbox announced its San Diego Comic-Con schedule on their site today, and it’s jam-packed.

At Xbox’s Booth (#100), attendees can swing by for a chance to play Halo 5: Guardians and its massive-scale multiplayer mode, or head over to the previously-announced Xbox Lounge at the Manchester Grand Hyatt to try out titles like Mad Max, Tom Clancy’s The Division, LEGO Marvel Avengers, and more.

The Lounge has extended hours this year and will be open on Thursday from 11AM-8PM, Friday and Saturday from 11AM-8PM, and Sunday from 10AM-5PM. You’ll need a Comic-Con badge for entry. In addition, attendees can test out their real life battle skills in the Halo 5: Guardians Breakout Arena brought to you by BOOMco, where you and your friends suit up in armor, load out with Halo Blasters, and test your skills in a real-life recreation of the Crossfire multiplayer map.

Attendees will also be able to create custom capes in the lounge, purchase merchandise from Xbox, Halo, and Minecraft, and watch game demos and see the stars of Z Nation, Colony, Hand of God, 1Dead Rising, and more in special programming panels at the Lounge.

You can find the complete programming schedule, and all other information, on Xbox’s site.

Finally, Xbox will be giving away 20 custom Xbox One consoles featuring some of their upcoming titles at the Lounge. Stop by to be entered to win – and instructions are on their site.
