The full schedule for PAX East 2020, the premier celebration of all things gaming, is now available. From Thursday, Feb. 27 – Sunday, Mar. 1, PAX East will host the most attended gaming event in the US in the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
A bevy of publishers and developers, including Square Enix, Supergiant Games, and many more, have chosen PAX East 2020 to interact with fans and share updates for some of the most anticipated AAA titles.
Panels featuring game designers, writers, composers, and community leads from Ubisoft, Respawn Entertainment, 343 Industries, Insomniac Games, ArenaNet, Niantic, and more will pack the theatres. Fan-favorite streamers, content creators, and personalities from IGN, Discord, GameSpot, Twitch, PC Gamer, Magic: The Gathering, and more decorate a weekend of gaming bigger than ever.
“Every PAX has its own vibe while still being, somehow, PAX,” said Jerry Holkins, PAX and Penny Arcade co-founder. “The venue for this one, the BCEC, and the almost cosmic scale of the show make it a true spectacle. I remember touring the venue years ago, wondering if we’d ever need that much space. We needed it the next year.”
Single-day badges for Friday and Saturday of PAX East 2020 are sold out. Four-day badges are available for $225, with single-day badges for Thursday and Sunday selling for $60. To receive badges in the mail, orders must be placed before Monday, Feb. 3.
Media and content creator registration for PAX East 2020 closes on Thursday, Jan. 30 at Noon PT.

PAX, or Penny Arcade Expo, is a festival for gamers to celebrate gaming culture. First held in Seattle in 2004, PAX has nearly doubled in size each successive year, with PAX Prime 2014 selling out of tickets in a matter of minutes. Connecting the world’s leading game publishers with their most avid and influential fans, PAX expanded with a second show in Boston in 2010, and a third in San Antonio in 2015, making it the three largest gaming shows in North America. The first international PAX was held in Melbourne, Australia in 2013. In 2017, Penny Arcade established PAX Unplugged, its first tabletop focused show, held in Philadelphia.
