PAX West 2018 is happening at the end of the month and there will be a lot of exhibitors and panels being held at the event. PAX West has now announced via a press release some of the things you will see at this year’s event.
Numerous panels will be held this year from lots of different gaming publishers. You can read about the details outlined in the press release down below.
This year’s panels include developers of Shadow of the Tomb Raider discussing the creation of the hidden city of Paititi, and Life is Strange 2 creators hosting a discussion and Q&A. Jackbox Games will partake in a raucous live panel and, of course, the Penny Arcade co-creators will host several live sessions throughout the show.
The Omegathon tournament will also return, pitting 20 PAX attendees against one another in a competition across a range of games culminating in a live championship during the show’s closing ceremonies. The final day will also give attendees the opportunity to interact with Penny Arcade and PAX co-founders Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik in a Q&A session.
“I love this town, and I love PAX,” Holkins said. “I’m getting really antsy to see the new game stuff everybody’s going to bring. I wish the show could start tomorrow.”
