There’s less than 36 hours left to wait until the release of Halo 5: Guardians. To celebrate the release, Xbox UK will be transforming the Roundhouse in London for an exclusive launch event tomorrow (October 26th).

The event will see Halo fans, media and YouTubers join together to celebrate one of the most anticipated games of 2015 – coming exclusively to Xbox One on October 27th. Partnering with YouTube Gaming, the evening will include a two and a half hour livestream of Halo 5: Guardians starting at 7.30pm GMT, live from London.

The stream will feature a tournament between the UK’s biggest gaming YouTubers and fans, a live campaign walk-through from 343 Industries’ Franchise Development Director, Frank O’Connor, along with fan giveaways, appearances from special guests and more. Fans can watch the events unfold on YouTube Gaming.

The UK stream will entertain fans ahead of Halo 5: Live, a six-hour live broadcast, kicking off from 10pm GMT, that will connect millions of viewers around the world, allowing them to watch, comment and virtually participate in multiple launch celebrations held in key international cities. The six-hour broadcast will feature exclusive gameplay reveals, celebrity appearances and live interviews with the 343 Industries development team.

[quote by=”Bonnie Ross, Corporate Vice President and Head of 343 Industries”]Halo 5: Guardians is the game we have always dreamed of making, and it was important to us that Halo fans in every corner of the world could join us in an epic-scale launch celebration. Whether they tune into the live broadcast on YouTube or come out and celebrate with us in person at one of our global fan events, we hope Halo Nation will help make Halo 5: Guardians the biggest game launch in Xbox history.[/quote]
