    Flashback & Old School Event Series Conclusion - This week we are are concluding our Flashback and Old School event series with Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Titanfall 2, respectively. I want to thank everyone who participated and contributed towards these series this month. It was a lot of fun visiting and playing with the Angry Army across a variety of old and new titles. We hope you can join us as we conclude both ventures this week.
    Doomfist Arrival - This Saturday we will be welcoming the arrival of Doomfist to the world of Overwatch on Xbox! Overwatch, one of the flagship weekly events we feature in the Xbox One Division, will be themed this Saturday night around the introduction of Doomfist. His addition to the game has been long awaited by members of the Angry Army! I hope you can join us and get to play during our wild custom games! Doomfist is slated to release on July 27th.
    Titanfall 2 Free to Play Weekend & Event - To wrap up the Xbox events in July, this Sunday night we will be featuring Titanfall 2 event in celebration of Titanfall's presence in the Xbox Division's history and in observance of their coming Free to Play weekend (full access to multiplayer starts on July 28th and ends July 31st). We're calling all 'Angry' Pilots, veteran and new, on Xbox to come join us for a night of fun Titanfall 2 action and adventure. This is a perfect opportunity for those who want to experience the game for the first time with friends in the Angry Army.

A classic game mode we used to often play during the original Titanfall events years ago, Frontier Defense is a four player co-op game mode where you and your squad battle several waves of ever increasing enemies. We look forward to how Titanfall 2 has improved upon the original.
