PAX West, here we come

It’s time for Twitch to make the annual trek north to Seattle for PAX Pri…I mean, PAX West.

This show is shaping up to be one of the biggest, baddest, and, most entertaining PAXs yet, and we are bringing all the delicious content to you through the power of the internet.

Make sure to bookmark our PAX West 2016 Event Portal where you’ll find links to channels covering the Main, Hydra and Wyvern theaters, all the competitive gameplay at the PAX Arena, and our main Twitch channel, where we’ll be streaming live from our booth all day. Full schedules are already listed for all the channels, so you can start planning what to tune into right now.

Here are a few of highlights you shouldn’t miss:

Twitch Town Hall — Friday, 12pm-1pm PDT Wyvern TheatreJoin Marcus ‘djWHEAT’ Graham and Erin ‘Aureylian’ Wayne to learn new details about this year’s TwitchCon, participate in the 3rd Annual Global Emote Vote, and discover what else we have in store for 2016. If you’re attending PAX in person, make sure to get here early as the first 500 people in line will get a swag bag stuffed with goodies.

PAX Arena 12pm PDT each day (10am Saturday, September 3)

PAX Arena is going big with four different titles and multiple competitions being displayed on the main stage. This will include the first major live event for Elder Scrolls: Legends, a massive Clash Royale open competition for all PAX attendees, For Honor showmatches, and a Gears of War First to 50 Horde Challenge. And last but not least, Gears of War 4 For the Watch. Following its success at PAX East, Gabe & Tycho will duke it out in another grudge match, this time with more blood, gore & chainsaws. Good times! Joining us will be a variety of streamers with Kelly Link hosting. Here’s who we have lined up so far:

Twitch Booth Stage and Stream

Every year, the Twitch booth is your shining purple beacon in the sea of humanity that is PAX. If you’re attending the show, join us at booth #1909 where we’ll be featuring lots of fun gameplay, interviews, and competitions including the sure-to-be epic PJSaltan: ZOO PARTY.

Mobile games are on the rise on Twitch! Stop by to play the game that started it all; Vainglory — the MOBA perfected for touch. The first 50 people at the Vainglory Game Zone get a Twitch Pin. Make sure to sign up for in-game unlocks!

Intel Streamer Zone

We know Twitch partners miss streaming for their fans when traveling, just as much as fans miss their favorite streamers. That’s why Twitch has partnered up with Intel to bring the Intel Streamer Zone to all our events in 2016. A full schedule of who’s streaming and when will be posted at the booth. This is also where you can meet and greet featured partners and get those Kappa Cards signed.

Twitch Partner Lounge, powered by H1Z1: King of the Kill and Reese’s Puffs Cereal (Booth #1901)

We have a lot of Twitch streamers coming to events these days to hang out with Twitch and each other. In fact, over 500 stream partners have signed up to join us at PAX! Since not everyone can fit at the main Twitch booth, we have partnered up with H1Z1: King of the Kill and Reese’s to help provide a hangout spot they can chill at. Twitch partnered streamers are welcome to relax and network here, play or stream H1Z1: King of the Kill, and take photos. Fans are welcome to swing by to catch photos of their favorite broadcasters and play H1Z1: King of the Kill on elite gaming machines from iBUYPOWER hooked up with peripherals from Corsair Gaming. First 100 people there each day get a Twitch/H1Z1: King of the Kill Swag bag.

PAXPort Challenge

****We know you love swag, but not everyone can make it in person to the show. So, to bring that swag goodness to the fine folks watching from home, we bring you the PAXPort Challenge. Click here and Enter To Win today for one of two daily prize packs with cool stuff from Twitch, Intel, Vainglory, Corsair, and iBUYPOWER.
