This Year's PAX Prime Is Also One Big Halo Fest

The annual Penny Arcade Expo, the one that takes place in Seattle, will also be home to a Microsoft-sponsored festival geared for the Halo fan. The appropriately named Halo Fest, Microsoft says, is "the largest and most expansive live Halo experience ever."

Halo Fest will run alongside PAX Prime 2011, from Friday, August 26 to Sunday, August 28 at the Washington State Convention Center. Admission is free with your PAX Prime badge purchase. So why would you want to go? Microsoft promises "tournaments, exclusive panels, and sweet prizes" as part of a celebration commemorating ten years of Halo. Plus, we're sure there will be lively debates about the fiction of the Halo universe with the most knowledgeable of crowds.

Will that rumored Halo: Combat Evolved remake make an appearance? That sounds like it would be a nice bonus, eh?
