XBOX ONE HIGH FLYERS WELCOMES BACK FANS FROM THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME
Singapore, 2 April 2015 – The Xbox One High Flyers programme concluded with the five grand prize winners returning from the trip of a lifetime across three continents. The ten-day tour was the culmination of a seven-week competition in five countries across Asia-Pacific*.
Over ten days between 30 January and 8 February 2015, the five grand prize winners of the Xbox One High Flyers competition and their friends caught Katy Perry LIVE at one of the world’s most-watched annual sporting event, the Super Bowl XLIX, and soaked in the atmosphere of the illustrious and fiercely-contested Merseyside Derby between soccer heavyweights Liverpool and Everton.
They also had exclusive behind the scenes access at several major game development studios, including 343 Industries, Capcom Game Studio Vancouver, EA SPORTS in Vancouver, Insomniac Games, Playground Games and Ubisoft Singapore. At the studios, the winners and their friends got the rare opportunity to record and lend their voices to characters from the Assassin’s Creed series; had a taste of how motion capture is done for popular titles in the EA SPORTS stable; test-drive the cars featured from Forza Horizon 2 and were part of a select few to ever ride in the Warthog from Halo with none other than the Master Chief himself!
“Catching the Super Bowl was really awesome,” said Nguyen Quy Hy. “We are grateful for Xbox’s efforts in making this trip a truly once in a lifetime experience.”
