• Exhibit Hall

    This hall is packed with exhibitors ranging from AAA publishers and developers behind the latest blockbuster games, to the innovative indie teams disrupting the industry.

  • Omegathon

    A mega-tournament spanning the entire length of PAX, this event features games of all platforms and genres. We start with 16 two-player teams of Omeganauts and run them through a gauntlet of carnage until there are only two teams left. And then we pit them against each other.
