The eighth annual PAX East gaming convention begins today, March 10, and runs through the weekend. PAX East is held in Boston at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
Since 2010 PAX East has rocketed in popularity, selling out every year to become one of the biggest gaming conventions in the U.S. (along with PAX West in Seattle).
If you’re not attending PAX East, don’t fret. We live in the age of live streaming, and Twitch.tv has you covered. No less than four different channels will broadcast various games and panels of PAX East. See the full schedule for the weekend here.
The keynote speaker for PAX East 2017 is game designer Jake Solomon, Lead Designer for XCOM: Enemy Unknown and XCOM 2 at Firaxis. The keynote speaker is the first panel at every PAX. Solomon will take the stage of the Main Theatre at 10:30 AM EST. You can watch it live on Twitch.
Honored to give the Storytime keynote at PAX East this year! PAX is always a wonderful/strange/warm/happy place and I hope to see you there https://t.co/aspsioZr31
