The exhibition floor will be taken over by developers, including Larian Studios, Tripwire Interactive, Thunderful Games, and more, who will display both well-known and recently-announced games.

In addition, PAX continues to schedule a jam-packed weekend of gaming competitions, panels galore, live performances from Penny Arcade, esports events in the PAX Arena, and musical performances with a video game theme. With tabletop lounges and free play areas for PC and console games, PAX West will also provide the community a chance to mingle. More details will be released later.

As you can see, we’re taking our PAX East momentum and we’re bringing it to Seattle. But, let’s stay safe out there. We’re proud of our health and safety requirements at the shows, but they work best when they’re observed broadly—even outside the show. Observing the rules is how we can have nice things.Jerry Holkins, co-founder of Penny Arcade and PAX

Additionally, attendees will be required to conceal their faces at all times. Please refer to the official health and safety regulations for additional details.

He's also an uber Kevin Smith fan (all Smith's movies are worth a watch, even 'Yoga Hosers') who has cried during Kermit's monologue in 'The Muppets' and once owned two VHS copies 'Spice World'. He loves all pop culture, particularly the Berlantiverse (because 'Arrow' hasn't been the face of those CW shows for years), the MCU, and Star Wars. The Evil Dead franchise is his favorite horror franchise, though the original 'Scream' is his favorite scary movie. He bleeds Eagle's green in the (suburbs of the) greatest city on Earth, Philadelphia. Go Birds!
