PAX West is already set up to be a spectacular expo this year with companies like Sony, Bungie, Ubisoft, Google, and Capcom taking up space in the exhibitor halls and literally hundreds of events and panels going on at all hours, including the Gearbox Main Theater Show where we should hear more about Borderlands 3 and a panel for Cyberpunk 2077.

 

Sick Critic will be at PAX West, so from August 30 to September 2, be on the lookout for exclusive interviews and news straight from Seattle, Washington.
