A Halo of a Good Time – SXSW Gaming Day Three

Cosplay Character from 2018

It’s the last day of SXSW Gaming 2019, but we’re going to keep the party rolling!

Gaming Wristband pick up will be available in Ballroom B of the Austin Convention Center until 5pm.

The Halo Championship Series Invitational will come to an epic close on the Tournament Stage in Ballroom A, programming on the Discovery Stage will dive deep into fan-centric panels, and make sure to do your last round of the Gaming Expo – we still have plenty of tournaments and open play opportunities!

We want to give a big thank you to everyone that joined us at the SXSW Gaming Awards last night and congratulations to all the winners! Our talented hosts Lindsay Jones and Alex Corea and the entertainment acts brought their A-Game to make sure it was the best awards ceremony yet.

Help us finish out this weekend strong at the Cosplay Contest and SXSW Closing Party at the Alienware Outpost hosted by our friends at Alienware!

Now, let’s make the best of day three!
