PAX West going virtual for 2020, returning to Seattle 2021

Another Seattle staple event is going virtual this year.

PAX West, a global gaming culture celebration operated by Penny Arcade in Redmond, will happen online this year, Sept. 12-20. The decision to go virtual was made to protect the safety and health of the community.

The event typically takes place in Seattle, where the very first PAX was hosted. It will return to the city in 2021.

During the virtual event, people can expect 24 hours of daily content, gameplay, events and discussions, as well as premieres of highly-anticipated games, live performances broadcasted online, fundraisers, Q&As and more.
