Xbox Arena (Tournaments) Live in Preview

UltraTech Timestamp:

Hey there, everyone, it’s Dragonglove from the Xbox Live team.


I just wanted to let you know we re-enabled Arena for our users in Preview. These automated tournaments have you facing off in a bracket against other players, with registration and matchmaking handled by Xbox Live. The first tournaments start tonight and are available in North America (7:00 PST), Brazil (7:00 BRT), and Western Europe (7:00 GMT). We’re excited to have you all try it out so here’s what you need to do:

Win 10 Players (available to all users):

  • Download the Xbox (Beta) app from the Windows Store.

Xbox One Players (available only to Insider users):

  • Check if you’re in the Alpha or Beta rings using the Xbox Insider App.

All Users:

  • Navigate to the Killer Instinct Game Hub.
  • Click the Tournaments tab.
  • Select the Monday Preview Tournament for 7:00pm tonight and Register.
  • You’ll receive a notification 15 minutes before the tournament starts to Check In.

The best place to leave feedback or if you encounter an issue is to let us know through feedback in the Xbox Insider App or Xbox (beta) App, though I’ll be in the Killer Instinct club and unofficial Discord channel tonight during the tournament. If you have any questions, be sure to let me know.

Good Luck! Daniel
