EGX Combines With PAX Online For Nine-Day Digital Event

EGX Combines With PAX Online For Nine-Day Digital Event

EGX and PAX are joining forces, and USG will be there too.

This year has seen a number of major gaming events go online to digital forums, and now, EGX is the latest to follow suit. The in-person EGX has been called off, and will become EGX Digital, teaming up with PAX Online for nine days of online content.

For those unaware, EGX is part of a series of conventions hosted by our sister site Eurogamer that take place in Europe, featuring show-floor demos and panels. It's similar to PAX in many ways, and usually takes place in London every year, alongside other shows like EGX Rezzed and Berlin.

Joining forces with the previously announced PAX Online, EGX Digital will run all day from Sept. 12 through 20 with an online show that brings the expo experience home. Developer sessions, panels, playable games, streaming content, and most of the usual show floor experience you'd look for at a PAX or EGX, in the comfort of your own home. Finally, I won't get weird looks for showing up to my own panels in pajama pants.

Many sites, including ours, are partnering up to deliver content throughout the week. | ReedPop

USgamer will be partnering with the various other sites in the network to put on content throughout the week. This includes our pals over at Eurogamer, gamesinudstry.biz, Rock Paper Shotgun, and more. We'll be bringing you coverage of the event, as well as hopefully some surprising and exciting content throughout the week-plus of digital content.

While it won't be the same as meeting up in-person, this major games event at least gives everyone a chance to congregate online, meet new friends, and share in the video game-infused bliss of a show floor without the limits of physical distance. No matter where you're tuning in from, we hope to see you online at the big event.

Disclosure: USgamer is owned and operated by ReedPop, which also runs the PAX and EGX family of shows.
