Matt Sayer 6 October 2017 NEWS


Start planning your schedule for the star-studded event now.

The full schedule for the upcoming PAX Australia event later this month has been unveiled today, and the roster is jam-packed with exclusive panels, tantalising tournaments and, of course, plenty of games to go hands-on with.

Some of the highlights include a storytime panel with Red vs Blue creator Burnie Burns, a Dungeons & Dragons for Dummies crash course, a forum on how to introduce your kids to video games and a live on-stage playthrough of the latest Jackbox Party Pack game.


On the competitive side of things, there'll be tournaments for Forza Motorsport 7, Super Smash Bros Wii U, Splatoon 2, Rocket League, Overwatch, Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite and many, many more popular titles.

The show floor will be just as hectic as ever, with free-play areas stocked with PCs, consoles, VR stations and tabletop games for when you're not hightailing it from one end of the Melbourne Convention Centre to the other. Upcoming shooter Call of Duty: WWII will be getting its own dedicated gaming space, too, where you can take the game for a spin prior to its 3 November release.

PAX Australia kicks off Friday 27 October and runs through to Sunday 29 October. You can still snap up single-day badges for $65 through Showclix, and a few $165 three-day badges remain available, too.

In other PAX Australia news, Japan's most popular digital card game will be making its appearance at the show, too.
