PAX Australia Online starts tomorrow and will run until October 10, so your next three days of gaming and pop-culture are sorted.

Got no plans for the weekend? Well luck is on your side, friends, as PAX Australia Online kicks off tomorrow and it seems like there’s plenty to enjoy for gaming and pop-culture fans alike. The event will run from October 8-10 and will be jam-packed with all sorts of events.

Things will kick off at 11:30am AEDT with a keynote address by Innersloth. No big deal, they’re just the team behind the immensely successful Among Us.

Once that’s done and dusted there will be panels with developers including fireside conversations with Deathloop’s Dinga Bakaba and The Elder Scrolls Online’s Matt Firor and Rich Lambert.

Also scheduled are discussions on speedrunning, deep dives into the indie scene and a virtual concert.

Jump online at 12pm AEDT on Saturday October 9 and you’ll even be able to tune into Galaxy of Crime – a live-play Star Wars tabletop RPG campaign that features the likes of none other than Freddie Prinze Jnr. You just can’t make this stuff up.

The best part about all this is that PAX Australia Online won’t cost you a single dollar to attend. Instead, the three-day event will be hosted across Twitch, Discord, and the PAX Aus website.

PAX Australia was originally planned for an in-person event for 2021, and we were admittedly pretty jazzed. That joy was short-lived however because, you know, global pandemic.

“At the start of the year, we were optimistic that we’d all be able to come together in person this October,” organisers posted. “We’ve been working hard with our partners and exhibitors to deliver the best possible version of PAX Aus 2021, but due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 in Australia, the next edition of PAX Aus will now take place in 2022.”

Fingers crossed, right?
