Interested in learning what's next for the gaming industry? Join gaming executives to discuss emerging parts of the industry this October at GamesBeat Summit Next. Register today.

Our community is relaunching soon, and we’re giving away an Xbox One to celebrate.

Specifically, GamesBeat Unfiltered is coming back on Jan. 1. Well, kind of. The section of our site that allows you to submit your own stories will now be called GamesBeat Community. Why the name change? Well, we really want to create one of the best, inclusive, and most positive gaming communities out there. We want to give you a place where can you talk about the industry and grow as a writer.

Of course, if you’re looking for a little incentive to jump on board, we’re giving away an Xbox One bundled with Assassin’s Creed: Unity. For a chance to win, you simply have to write at least one story for GamesBeat Community during January. We’ll then randomly pick a winner and send the bundle to them. Please note that for shipping reasons, we can only select a winner from the continental U.S.

But don’t worry! Even if you don’t win a shiny new system, you’ll still get to enjoy new features when GamesBeat Community relaunches, including:


MetaBeat 2022

MetaBeat will bring together thought leaders to give guidance on how metaverse technology will transform the way all industries communicate and do business on October 4 in San Francisco, CA.
