Microsoft has announced that it will once again be hosting a big gaming party during E3 in June, with details revealed for how average folks can gain access to Xbox FanFest: E3 2017.

In what is becoming a sort of tradition for Team Xbox, they'll be inviting oodles of people to their E3 party once again this year, where folks will have an opportunity to mingle and play a boatload of games. According to the official announcement, this event will be part of the 2017 FanFest series of events but, since this one is happening during E3, you can imagine the atmosphere will be a bit more electric.

Xbox FanFest: E3 2017 is scheduled to run through the opening stages of E3, from June 11-13, and Microsoft will once again be opening the doors to 500 lucky fans. As a matter of fact, you might be able to claim one of those spots for yourself.

First things first, you need to be at least 21 years of age and have an Xbox Live gamertag to sign up. In order to snag a ticket, you'll need to log on for online registration process. That part is important, because 400 of those tickets will be given away on a first come, first serve basis. While the announcement doesn't state this, you should probably make sure you plan on being in LA during the event, because it would be pretty cruel to claim one of those spots if you don't actually plan on attending. It should also be noted that you'll need a credit card to claim your ticket. While the ticket is actually free, you'll be charged if you decide not to attend so, again, plan on being in LA for the event.

The process begins tomorrow, April 19, and tickets will be released in waves throughout the day. The first wave will hit at 6 a.m. PT so set your alarm accordingly. You'll want to keep up with @Xbox on Twitter or follow the #XboxFanFest hashtag to find out when additional drops will happen throughout the day.

As for those final 100 tickets, Microsoft plans on distributing them through a variety of promotions and events so, again, you'll want to follow those Twitter sources for information as it becomes available.

More than just a FanFest event, these 500 people will also be invited to attend the Microsoft E3 press conference this year, where we're likely to hear all sorts of new information about Project Scorpio, as well as games like Crackdown 3 and the next Forza. You'll also snag a backpack full of swag.

Good luck!
