PAX West and PAX Aus are combining for the global PAX Online Experience

After the necessary but disappointing announcement that PAX Aus 2020 had been cancelled, fans were bereft. Thankfully, PAX had a plan up its sleeve and has today announced PAX Online. Taking place from September 12 through 20, PAX Online is a replacement for both PAX Aus and PAX West.

Additionally, PAX Online will include support from EGX to make it the largest community event possible. PAX Online will “bring fan-favorite content 24 hours a day, over 9 days, all for free.”

This digital expo will bring together what fans love about PAX Aus and PAX West and will include game announcements and reveals, hands-on demos, esports and more.

PAX Online

Jerry Holkins, co-founder of PAX said;

First and foremost, PAX has always been about the incredible community created by everyone involved, from the attendees, panelists, exhibitors, and our amazing enforcers. 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.

Fans will be able to get their hands on PAX Online merch from the official website which includes letterman jackets, hoodies and pins. Panel submissions are open today and will close on July 24.

Indie devs who’d like to be part of the PAX Online Indie Showcase can apply from now until July 24.

The how and where of PAX Online will be announced in the coming weeks. For more information, please follow PAX on twitter, PAX on Facebook, PAX on Instagram and visit the official website.
