Largest Gaming Events in Australia and USA Combine to Deliver Global PAX Online Experience
PAX, the most-attended events in Australia and North America celebrating all things gaming, brings its first online event to the global gaming community this Sept. 12-20 as replacements for 2020’s PAX Aus and PAX West along with support from EGX, the largest gaming event in the UK. With an international community joining the festivities, PAX Online will bring fan-favorite content 24 hours a day, over 9 days, all for free and most importantly a chance to connect with and make new friends.

“First and foremost, PAX has always been about the incredible community created by everyone involved, from the attendees, panelists, exhibitors, and our amazing enforcers ” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder of PAX. “PAX Online will recreate that shared experience, along with everyone’s other favorite elements from game rxxcs eveals, exclusive hands-on experiences, the chance to hear from and speak with your favorite game developers, journalists as well as content creators, and so much more. Even if we can’t all meet in Seattle or Melbourne this year, we look forward to reconnecting with friends, and welcoming everyone to our new home, PAX Online.”
