The BIGGEST gaming event of the year is approaching, PAX Online - Welcome Home (from home). PAX Online (September 12-20th) is an all-new event for the gaming community to hang out, interact, and immerse themselves 24/9, in a virtual playground with the biggest publishers, world-class indie games, homegrown community panels and all the usual PAX shit too. PAX Online is the result of the convention-organizing supergroup made up of the people responsible for PAX Australia, PAX West, as well as our new friends at EGX to create PAX Online and deliver a steady 24/9 stream of content, events, discussions, and gameplay.

PAX Online will serve as a digital space encompassing everything fans love about PAX Aus and West’s annual bash including surprising game reveals, hands-on demos, thrilling esports tournaments, a carefully curated selection in the Indie Showcase, as well as new partnerships bringing the virtual show floor to life as ReedPOP and Penny Arcade translate their creative vision into an accessible new format.


“First and foremost, PAX has always been about the incredible community created by everyone involved, from the attendees, panellists, exhibitors, and our amazing enforcers,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder of PAX. “PAX Online will recreate that shared experience, along with everyone’s other favourite elements from game rxxcs reveals, 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.”

PAX Merchandise makes its return to PAX Online with fresh 2020 designs for fan-favourite letterman jackets, hoodies, and pins. Pre-orders are available now on the official website with more goodies in the pipeline as the festivities officially kick-off this fall.
